Dreaming of a Creamy White Poncho

Do you ever get a garment in your head, and it torments you until it is in your closet?  Well, recently a creamy white sweater poncho did this to me.  I saw one online and loved it.  But, it was expensive and sometimes in South Texas we do not know if we will get the cost per wear out of a winter garment to justify the price.  Some winters are cold, but some are very warm and we do not even wear a coat.  It is just hard to know what we are facing.

But, a friend of mine, told me about this poncho she saw at Stein Mart and suggested I go look at it.  I did and think it is exactly what I had in mind…for much, much less.  This fabric has to be treated with care…it takes steaming…or ironing through a towel.  But, I can justify this price much more where I live and it has the holiday look I was seeking.  If the weather cooperates, I will wear this when I go downtown with my husband to see the Christmas lights.  Downtown San Antonio is amazing at Christmas and we usually stay in hotel and enjoy a longer visit.

The other pieces are my faux leather leggings from Soft Surroundings, my Enzo Angiolini Boots from Macys, a bracelet from French Kande and my Victoria Bosco python clutch.

Sadly, I could not find this garment online, but I did find some similar ones and posted in the slideshow below.   When was the last time you had something in your mind, and just had to find it?  Please share your story.  Thanks for being here, and

KEEP SMILING!!

  1. That is gorgeous Pam!!! I love the style and detail, AND the color!! Just beautiful! I love it with the leggings and boots! Any time I see winter white in the store I’m drawn like a magnet, it’s just one of my favorite things! I have the same thing happen when you just can’t get something out of your head – currently having that with some boots I saw! It’s such a fun thing to do for Christmas, going to see the lights and staying overnight to extend the visit – something to definitely look forward to, and that poncho is going to be perfect!!

    1. Hopefully the weather will cooperate in about three weeks when I really want to wear this! Thanks Karen! Happy Monday!

  2. You look wonderful! I know the feeling of being on the hunt for something. Often it’s something I think is fairly basic and should be easy to find, but I can’t find it anywhere! Glad you had such lovely success.

    1. It doesn’t always work out, does it? Thanks for the encouragement…I think it may have worked this time.

  3. Your outfit is beautiful, perfect for the colder months ahead. What a good find. Right now I am searching for the “perfect” pea jacket – I have coveted one for a good while. Some are way too expensive, some are not the right material, some do not fit quite right …….. ….still looking.

    1. Hi Wendy, I have owned it for several years. Victoria Bosco is a lovely accessories designer out of Houston. I am not certain she is still designing or not. Her pieces are beautiful!
