NYC knit pairing

My always fab mother and I are taking a quick weekend trip to NYC the third weekend in June. Because we are in the fashion mecca of the good ol' US of A, I want to look super cool. This is what I'm working on. I'm doing mine in red.

On first glance, it's pretty traditional. To "haute" it up, I'm going to loose the knitted belt and use a black silver studded belt instead. I have one very similar to the one Carrie wore in the SATC movie. I bought it at Target last spring for 8 bucks. The original is $120!

I've been searching everywhere for a cami that has ruffles down the front to wear under it, and coming up with a nada. I think this might be close enough.

Pair those with some skinny jeans, and I'll be set.

My first post

What is Haute Couture?

haute cou·ture
French, literally, high sewing
: the houses or designers that create exclusive and often trend-setting fashions for women ; also : the fashions created

I titled this blog HAUTE KNITTER because I want to change people's perception of hand knit fashions. They can be trend-setting!

Those that read this blog my disagree with my thoughts. Tastes are so varied, and that is a good thing. My goal is to put out there some things that are current and exciting.
