Boxy in Burgundy

Of all the chunky items of clothing I own (and trust me, I own a lot), this jumper may just take the cake in being the chunkiest. It creates the uncanny illusion of making the wearer look rather buff, as if I've been pumping major iron, curling dumbbells and doing one-armed push ups #WerqIt! Hence forth this jumper shall forever be known as my body armor, providing not only warmth, but Herculean strength during mundane commutes. I'm convinced that this chunky top is so thick, that it might as well be marketed as bulletproof-chic, which will be handy if you ever find yourself suddenly in the middle of a Harlem gang feud. But as 'masculine' as this burgundy boxy feat of clothing can be, lets soften it by a pair of cut out pointy mid-heels, and an agate croc-skinned pochette, an of course dainty rings with some too small to fit all the way down to the knuckle. Voilà, balance is restored! P.S. I promise, I'd cut down on the steroids.

    1. Not only is it warm, like I said, I believe it to be bulletproof as well #benefits

    it IS such a pity that i missed this killa from the F/W 2012 collection
    the texture itself stands out and so does the silhouette!
