Topshop Knitted Ampersand Symbol Jumper
Oh how long I wanted this chic jumper from Topshop through 2011. This jumper was so on trend for last year's fall and winter fashion and I believe it can make a another appearance in my outfits for my fashion for winter 2012.
Initially I wanted this jumper after it was worn in an episode of Made In Chelsea on Binky Felstead. I adore the Made In Chelsea fashion and wanted this Topshop Ampersand Jumper from the moment I saw it. Unfortunately, on Topshop online and in Topshop UK stores, this jumper sold out, in what felt like a heart beat. The worst part was that this jumper would sell on Ebay UK for over £60 at times! Much higher than its retail value. Eventually, I was lucky to grab one for just £30 on Ebay UK on a buy it now offer as New With Tags! Fantastic!
At the time, I was more of a UK size 10/UK size 12, so when purchasing this jumper it was actually in a larger size than I am today! This was a photo I took during the winter of 2011 to show how this looked at the time! I miss my fringe ha!
Now, a year later, having lost near to three and a half stone, I am now a UK Size 4 petite, occasionally a UK Size 6 petite depending on the cut. I worried this & symbol jumper would look ridiculous on me as it was in a UK Size 10 Petite. However, this Topshop Ampersand jumper still looks as stylish as I remembered. A lovely jumper for my fashion over winter of 2012.
I imagine this piece will stay in fashion for many years so it is a great investment for women's clothing. If you ever get the chance to pick this up on Ebay or in a charity shop cheap I would completely recommend it! Other shops such as Internacionale and New Look had created similar looking jumpers, but I really didn't like them as much, the cut wasn't as flattering and they looked rather tacky in comparison.
If you're a fan of the Made in Chelsea fashion, I suggest you treat yourself to this jumper whenever you get the chance!
