The weather down under has definitely snapped into winter in the past few weeks and I find myself more and more reaching for my knitwear as a way to keep warm without adding too many bulky layers. One of my favorite knitwear pieces is my Harlequin Bobby jumper from Miss Fortune UK (you can read my review of that jumper here). I love the short sleeve design as it keeps my warm while allowing me the option to regulate my temperature on my walk to and from the station. But knowing harlequin isn’t for everyone, I wanted to share another design that is perfect for gals that love to match their accessorises with their outifts.
For those that aren’t familiar with Miss Fortune, its a small brand run by the wonderful Laura out of the UK. ConceivedÂ in 2005, Laura started small running her business from her garage and selling online. In 2007 she got her first premises and began taking wholesale (with her stock being made locally in the UK) and is now stocked around the world.
The Bobbie jumper from Miss Fortune UK is one of my absolute favorite winter pieces. Inspired by vintage sweaters of the past, this piece is perfect for the repro loving vintage girl. Made from acrylic the bobbie is warm, it isn’t itchy (my absolute pet peeve of winter knitwear) and having some stretch makes it incredibly comfortable. One thing I do love about this jumper is that the spiderweb print is a collaboration was well with UK accessory brand Luxulite. Its so great to see brands working together to create such a fun product for their customers, especially since we all know pinup girls love to match!
The Bobbie jumpers in spiderweb print are block coloured with a spider web stitched into top right shoulder. I adore the pumpkin spice colourway as I already had a few goodies in my wardrobe I could already team it with. The spider web is subtle and the neutral colourway of the main colour makes it a dream to accessorise. I can play to the pumpkin colour or introduce a new one entirely. I like items that are versatile and for me, this sweater definitely ticks those boxes. This sweater is also a great addition for any halloween loving pinups, who like spooky items they can wear all year round!
The matching brooch is equallyÂ as adorable. Also made in the UK by small business Luxulite, who specialises in retro Lucite jewellery, this little spider is sparkly and with his gold legs is the perfect touch to this sweater. I like that he isn’t permanently attached to the sweater either, meaning you can move his placement around to suit your mood or take him off to wear with another look or this sweater on its own. A clever pairing indeed!
For size reference I wear a large in the Bobbie Jumpers and find it to be the perfect fit. The BobbieÂ does have a fair amount of stretch so make sure you consult the size chart before making your purchase, as the fit you want will dictate what size you should opt for. For a more fitted look its recommended to size down.
The Bobbie spiderweb jumper in pumpkin spice is also budget friendly for an Aussie gal, retailing atÂ Â£37.99/$50.50AUDÂ + postage!Â
Also, if this colourway isn’t your jam, its also available inÂ
Bloody Mary Red, Ice Maiden Blue, Kiwi Green,Â Liquorice black and Strawberry Milkshake Pink.
The adorable matching spider brooch is available from Luxulite for $21.03AUÂ + postage! You can also get different colours to mix and match your spiders.
I hope you’ve all enjoyed this review lovelies and have found a match that fits you withÂ
Til next time!
