After my latest video I had almost as many questions about the cardigan I was wearing as the skincare products I featured – something about the striped cuffs seemed to really get people going!
Well I can reveal that the cardi is from Boden* – wool and cotton mix, machine-washable, £65. And yes I did choose it specifically for the stripy cuffs; when you spend the majority of your time filming yourself from the chest up, it’s nice to wear tops that have a bit of a print going on, or an interesting little detail on the shoulders or at the neckline.
In this case it’s the sleeves that do the talking – quite nice to have a flash of bold colour come on to the screen each time you wave your arms about or hold a product up to the camera. Although what the video didn’t show was the extra set of go-faster stripes up the back of the cardi – a jazzy little feature if ever I did see one.
(“Jazzy”. Something inside me dies every time I use that word. It’s up there with “trendy” and “bonk”, a word my Mum still insists on using whenever she refers to the act of sexual intercourse. I mean she doesn’t talk about sexual intercourse a lot, let’s not give the wrong impression here, but she does like to throw the B word into the conversation every now and then. Mostly to watch me cringe.)
You can find the Cassandra Cardigan here* – it comes in three different colourways, the grey you see pictured and then bright red* and dark navy. I must say that the red one feels very wintery and festive – and there’s something about it that reminds me of those old United Colours of Benetton adverts. I’m feeling all nostalgic…
*UPDATE* Boden have a 25% discount code running at time of writing – it appears to be A4H3, but I’m sure it will come up on the page when you go to the site so do double-check.
