Tiny Cashmere: Abercrombie and Fitch

You know that feeling when you find the thing you’ve been searching for since forever, and you skip out of the store singing a little song that goes something like, “I found tiny clothing…I found tiny clothing!” Well, today was one of those days.

Finding tiny fitted sweaters has always been a challenge for me, especially when I’m on the hunt for nice quality and coziness. Problems I often encounter are:

1. Too broad of a shoulder, so the shoulder seams go down my arm.
2. Too large of a torso, so my curves get hidden by a sweater that falls straight down.
3. Too large of arm holes and/or sleeves.
4. Length that overwhelms my tiny frame.

Juniors sweaters sometimes work, but they are usually made from cheap fabric and so not very cozy. So, it’s safe to say I’ve been on the hunt for a tiny cashmere sweater for quite some time.

All the “items every woman should own” lists have cashmere as a top wardrobe priority, but every one I found was about 1-2 sizes too large. So when I saw Abercrombie & Fitch had a cashmere sweater on sale, I was desperate to get to it. Abercrombie & Fitch has junior sizing, and their size XS is tiny!

I picked this sweater up in size XS in grey and navy and am VERY happy with it. It is a nice soft cashmere in a slim cut, and hits at my high hip. The sleeves are extra long and meant to be rolled. The cute pockets on the front give it a great menswear “grandpa sweater” look. And luckily, the moose embroidery that all Abercrombie & Fitch clothing items carries is the same color as the sweater, so it won’t scream, “I’m an adult who shops in stores meant for high schoolers!”

    I stopped by a store yesterday, but most of the sweaters were GONE GONE GONE!I think a good 1/4 to 1/3 of the store I went to was empty (except for all the new stuff in the front).So much for affordable cardis.

    What a bummer! If there are more A&F's in your area, try checking them all out. Otherwise, the A&F website still has plenty in XS and S…and they've been marked down even lower! I believe A&F ships to Canada too.http://www.abercrombie.com/anf/onlinestore/html/shipping.html

    I know! Usually the smallest sizes sell out the quickest! I’m tempted to pick up a few more b/c I KNOW I’m going to wear these poor sweaters until they fall apart at the seams. When else will I find such tiny cashmere sweaters for such a great price?
