Ivanka Trump Fair Isle Sweater




Normally, I think Ivanka Trump dresses very "Madison Avenue," so it's no surprise that the Ivanka Trump Boutique is located there. This particular outfit she wore while traveling from Hawaii to L.A. is way more my speed. I really dug this sweater when it first came out in the season but passed it up. Great to see me, a woman with a beer budget, have something in common with a woman with a champagne budget. She probably paid the full price of $78 (still a great price!). I was pleased as punch to find it on sale. Also, congratulations on your pregnancy, Ivanka!




Update: Some bloggers say Ivanka is wearing the Juliette Jake Fair Isle Skinny Throw above that costs a whopping $285. You'd think that to be the case. Nope. Apart from the expensive one being wool/acrylic and the affordable one being acrylic, if you look closely at the last row of design along the bottom of the Juliette Jake, it does not match Ivanka's. She is indeed wearing the cheaper one. Just another example of how the rich stay rich and the smart-thrifty look like a million bucks.
