Must have cashmere sweaters…

I’ve been on the hunt recently for a kind of oversized-super-comfy-boyfriend-looking-sweater that, when paired with skinny jeans, will cover my butt.  I’ve had no luck whatsoever finding this mythical rear-hiding bit of fabulousness… until a few days ago when I received an email from C & C California.


I don’t think I’ve ever gotten an email from this company before but somehow they must have heard my fashion prayers and decided to answer them.

Right now — this very instant — they are having a sale on all their cashmere sweaters.  Are you sitting down?  Well, you may need to lie down before I tell you what I’m about to tell you — All their cashmere sweaters are currently on sale for 19.99.  I bought two, they just arrived, and I love them.


They aren’t 100 percent cashmere, but I’m not going to quibble.  They are buttery soft and even though they’re light, these sweaters are actually pretty warm.

Here is the one I wore today.  It’s the high-lo cashmere sweater in grey.


It covers my butt.  I couldn’t be happier.  I’m going to buy more.

And I just had to give you a cashmere heads up.  Happy shopping…

    Can I hijack your post???

    Holly and I have kids that attend a charter school. Each year I slave away, literally, ask Holly about my yearly hacking cough, to put our biggest fundraiser together on. It’s an online auction with local goodies and tons of other stuff that can be shipped – like wine, great stuff!

    If you wanna check it out, here is the link:

    If you wanna tell me to shove off, you can do that too. But check the site out before you do that. ;)

    Thanks for the blog space.

      Yes! Great idea, Hasannah. You know, I should post about the auction. It didn’t even occur to me!

  • Lisa says:

    Great tip, I just ordered 2! I love C&C t-shirts, so I’m sure the sweaters will be great :)

    You are too silly – you do not need to keep your butt covered. Or at least not totally covered, right?

    • Hassanah says:

      I agree! Shake that thang. Lol

      Seriously Holly, you are beautiful!!

    • My Year of Fabulous says:

      Thanks. I don’t necessarily need to cover my butt so much, but I definitely think grown ups look more chic in skinny jeans if they are wearing a longer skirt. It makes it kind of elegant? Sort of… Leave the tiny shirt and skinny jeans to 13 years olds. I’m not selling anything anymore! The store is closed!

    Can you add a link to the shop in the post?

    What a fabulous sale! Makes me feel better after missing the half off sale at Launch, Sebastopol’s hippest consignment stop. (Actually bought a C & C sweater at Launch a while back, love it)
