wishlist no. 1: cable knit sweater in winter white

a.p.c. wool irish pullover, $415

l.l. bean cotton fisherman sweater, $99

vanessa bruno athe alpaca folk sweater at anaise, $271

i've been looking for a white cable-knit sweater for a long while now. i go back and forth on whether it needs to be wool, cotton, or a wool blend. choosing the right fit is the most challenging part, though. do i want something that is more traditional, short and bulky, or something that is more figure-skimming but still connotes warmth and coziness? j.crew is an option, but i tend to stay away from their knits.

any other thoughts or leads on the perfect white cable knit sweater? should i look in vintage shops?

in other news, i'm thrilled that uniqlo finally opened a webshop.

the hat

BillyKirk women's wide brim hat

as a general rule, i would not buy a hat without trying it on. but this BillyKirk one at Bow+Arrow is pretty much what i'm looking for. the price is just about right, too.

acne cynthia long cardigan at la garconne

i'm in the midst of job applications and barely have time to come up for air these days. all the while i'm longing to watch 'The Master.' i'm not sure how i feel about burgundy as the ubiquitous fall color--i much prefer deep forest greens--but this acne cynthia cardigan seems like the perfect complement to the beautiful foliage in toronto.
