Blue and Orange - Melanie Wyse London Mohair Jumper

Yep. I was all over it. The pink and red jumper from Wyse London. I saw it and loved it immediately. Stripes, cute and in such a funky colourway. Just the right side of slouchy, nice amount of mohair to give it a retro feel. Right, I've pre-ordered it . Now sit back, flex those fingers and wait.

And wait. And wait. And wait. 

Well that's how it felt. And then all of a sudden, the blue and orange version of the jumper popped up but I wasn't fast enough and it sold out. What??? It was like, did I miss something there? Why didn't they have that out at the same time as the pink and red? Pfft! That's because I knew that if I'd seen the blue and orange one before the pink and red, I'd have just ordered the blue and orange. Humph. And then the email came saying the pink and red one had been despatched. And I went online to have another quick nosey at it to remind myself what it looked like and I spotted the blue and orange was  back in stock. I ordered faster than you could say "express delivery".

So two jumpers turned up on the same day. And I liked them both. Gah.

For fun, I showed a picture of them both to the hubs and didn't tell him I'd ordered them. 

Me :  "What do you think?"
Hubs :  "I don't like them".
Me :  "Why?"
Hubs.  "They're too bright .... for you."
Me :  "Oh"

So a day later I showed him some more pics of the jumpers and assured him that they weren't as bright as they appeared on screen. And he raised his eyebrows at me, in that "You're not going to let this drop are you" way. 

So I told him I had them both and was trying to decide. I trotted off upstairs and brought them down. and waft, wafted them under his nose. 

"Nope - not really you". 
"Are you sure". (me being stubborn and annoying like a petulant kid who can't take no for an answer).
"Well try them on, I can't really tell if you just waft them in front of me".

So off I trotted and came back in the blue and orange jumper. And I may have floofed up my hair a bit too.

"Hmm. It looks .... quite nice on you actually. Not as bright as I thought". 

And then I showed him the pink and red.

"It's okay but I prefer the blue and orange on you". 

Which is good as I did too. And I love how if you keep at someone long enough, you can get them to come round to your way of thinking. 😉

Last Note.

  • The jumper does keep selling out online but it seems to come up on pre-order again every now and then.
  • If they did it in a black and tan - that would be my dream colour combo.
  • The blue on this jumper is not as navy as it appears but a more delicious petrol/tealy blue shade which is so hard to capture.
  • I personally don't find it itchy but then again I might have a high itch tolerance. 
  • I'm a size 10 and wearing the size S/M
