Many summers ago I bought a beautiful knit poncho in Ireland (of all places!). That I stumbled upon it in some random, very un-fashiony store in Dublin made it even more fantastic. I wore it pretty much the entire time I was in Ireland, as it was chilly and overcast. But then somehow I got back to LA and--poof!--it disappeared. Lost in the shuffle. Gone. Now, the sting of losing it is once again re-surfacing, because I keep seeing glamorous ponchos everywhere. On Alexis Traina. On Clare Vivier. (Both are wearing Figue.) On Spanish blogger Alexandra Pereira, above, whose cozy version is by Bgo & Me and which sadly comes with a 45 Euro shipping fee! Then I spotted several options at Nordstrom, some of them 40% off, including this one, this one and this one. (P.S. Nordstrom is staging its bonkers half-yearly sale right now!) These graphic cardigan-like iterations from BB Dakota, Free People, Anthropologie, and She Inside are also seriously tempting.
