ModernGear Women: Sweater weather is finally here!

You might think I'm crazy to rejoice in such a fact but cooler weather is here, and I love it! Now I'm not completely odd - I don't love winter, but fall is definitely a season I'd extend if I could. There's just something about that scent in the air - the perfume of Autumn, and finally being able to layer a t-shirt with a sweater, over jeans and boots. Aaaah. Cozy.

Last year I was all about Vince...and so were some other very fashionable women.

And sometimes my tastes wax and wane, so I wasn't sure if I'd still be such a fan this fall. Oh, but I am.

And I'm about triple excited too because Vince but launched an e-commerce site so while I can find Vince sweaters and clothing on other sites, I can find the whole collection there. Let me share my favorites!

This style is also available at Tobi for $285 as the Vince Sculpted Car Coat.

Tobi also has another Vince style that I think could transition from late summer into fall very well, imagine it with a nice crisp white blouse underneath.

I like to look at my favourite e-boutiques as often they'll have sales that the designer's own web sites won't have until end-of-season, but I can say that the Vince selection out there is pretty light. No store, after all, can afford to carry the entire collection.

So from Vince's new e-commerce site where I could seriously shop til I drop, here are my additional favourite sweaters:

Reverse Stitch Kimono $295
Ultra light cardigan $320
Ribbed cardigan $265

I know these are quite expensive pieces, but I find their design to be timeless, and the cashmere is top these are investment pieces, and keepers.

Vince has a lot of other goodies besides sweaters, but that's just what I am in the mood for today...check out their new site.
