I never shop at Coldwater Creek. To be honest, I have somewhat negative associations of "frumpy" and "old lady" when it comes to the place, but wanted to investigate Ally's dress from her blog post on Wardrobe Oxygen this morning.


So, I started clicking around and found a few unexpected pieces with some potential. I don't have the time to go back and link to all of them, but I am attaching pics of two items that caught my eye. I'll admit, I ordered the cardigan - no one's more surprised than I am! I think paired with something other than the glitter Christmas tree top shown in the picture (you think?), it has the potential to rival similar looks by higher-end designers that I've seen at ShopBop or Piperlime.

Coldwater Creek also carries plus sizes, FYI.

Perhaps they're trying to attract a younger demographic? Don't get me wrong - there's still plenty of frumpy stuff to pick from, but it was kind of fun to find the needles in the haystack.
