poncho pretty


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.

I have to ask - have you ordered anything from She Inside? I've contemplated ordering from here, but I've read reviews of this retailer online and many people complain about the sizing, fabric quality and colors being different than pictured. Just wondering, thanks!

I have wondered about the same, but I have purchased a few things from them and so far so good! It does take a long time for the stuff to arrive.

I'm in Dublin, where did you get it?

What's up with "one-size"?? We all know, one-size does not truly fit all. Have you been successful with the sizing?

Unfortunately, it was many years ago and I have no idea what the store was or even what part of town it was in!
