Zadig & Voltaire Sweater

Tuesday 20 December 2011
My stash of Zadig et Voltaire clothes is growing albeit slowly as I tend to pick up a sweater here and a top there at their sales or outlet store. Yesterday, UPS came knocking to deliver the Madori sweater I'd ordered from their website. That'll teach me to be too hasty as the price came down again and this time they're offering free shipping (code: XMASGIFT). Pfffft....

On the flip side, the 100% merino wool is so soft even for someone like me who's usually allergic to wool. The narrower arm holes and the fit is fantastic for someone like me who has a petite frame. I've ordered the medium size as I prefer a more oversized fit.

I modeled for the hubby and Lil L. Hubby liked it but inquired, "haven't you got enough stripes?". Meanwhile, Lil L said, "mommy, is it new?". "Of course!" "mommy, it has holes everywhere!" "That's the design". Lil L listened with disbelief. "What?! They make new things look old?" *sigh*

  1. Men and Children! HAHAHAHA I love your sweater girl. You're going to get so much wear out of it. You can dress it up or down. Don't you hate when products are discounted or there's a special offer AFTER you've purchased it. So frustrating! Enjoy your sweater. :)

  2. awwww hahahaha loved their responses!!! very realistic. men & kids see things we can't see bc we are so clouded by our obsession w the piece hahaha i think it's a gorgeous sweater despite the holes :D

  3. I can't get enough of stripes too!
    Haha...I like little L's response.

  4. I like their clothes, they are very cool French girl.

  5. Kim, it REALLY irks me when I purchase something and soon after, the item gets discounted even more. Grrrr.... I'm trying to be positive by saying yes, I'll get a lot of wear out of this sweater. Holes and all.

    ShinyPrettyThings, yes, kids especially. They haven't learn to be tactful nor filter their thought processes. You haven't heard what Lil L had said on other occasions. NOT to be repeated.

    Chicology, honesty is over-rated. Best to teach Lil L to be more tactful :) I just can't stop buying striped tops too.

    Tabitha, Z&V clothes are overpriced but really cool. They have an outlet in Chelsea which pop in whenever I'm in town.

  6. i love zadig & voltaire.. i bought bunch of tops when i was still in paris. i love the quality and the texture!
    i love stripes too.. i just remember everytime i buy stripes clothes my hubby will just ask me "another stripes?" lol..

  7. It is the perfect sweater and you really made me smile with your husband and daughters comments - so heard them before - have a very very fabulous xmas and thank you so much for your lovely comment x

  8. I love the sweater, and love Little L's comment! HOpefully she won't go try to put holes in her sweaters to be like Mommy, haha!

  9. what a quirky and sweet blog. One can never have too many well made Breton striped jumpers, although I do think Zadig & Voltaire can be super overpriced at times.
