Joan Rivers Long Sleeve Embellished Cardigan
Not really a summer look, but got it at a sale price and will be great for Christmas, esp in Southern California . Love the feel of the material, sequins are soft and pretty
Gorgeous sweater! Love the sequins - they are not too flashy (almost matte), but just enough to be special. It is not a fitted sweater, which I liked, but you may not. Skims a little rounder tummy. The colors are stunning - definitely don't agree with the reviewer who didn't like the gold on gray.
Love them both~!
I am attending a ladies Christmas get together where we do dress up but aren't in formal attire. I ordered the gray and emerald sweaters thinking that I would return one or the other to wear that evening. I love them both. Of course, either color works with black trousers. I think the gray will look great with winter white trousers. Obviously, I am making the choice to keep both sweaters. The fabric is very soft. I ordered small, my usual size, that I found true to size. I don't think the sizing runs large as stated in previous reviews. I like the muted embellishment, to me, it lends itself to a more sophisticated look. Now searching for the right color layer to wear underneath. I do have a muted gold top that works with both the gray and the emerald colors. They are versatile, both sweaters also pair well with jeans and leggings for the casual look too.
I expected the bottom of this sweater to be a rib knit, not have the appearance of a hem. The gold on gray doesn't look good either to me. Liked the green better but as usual-not enough!
Love the Grey!!!
I love neutrals so I got the grey, in a large. Fits nicely, plan to wear around the holidays with black pants or jeans. Love the matte sequins, very current look and sophisticated.
LOVE THIS very elegant looking..fits well m size 12
I don't understand the bad reviews on this sweater. I purchased the emerald color to wear at Christmas and wore it several times to different events. No problem with piling and very festive. It was true to size and I wore a gold scarf (solid) with it and received many compliments. I have practically everything Joan Rivers has made and love her style!
I received this sweater today and it's gorgeous. The fit is perfect! I am 5'7" and a 2x and the fit couldn't be better. It's the perfect length and very flattering. When a sweater is too long like a tunic, it emphasizes the abdomen area; this one does not. It's the right length. I was also surprised at the weight of the sweater. Based on the reviews, I thought it might be cheap and thin, but it is not. The weight is just perfect for winter. I have blond hair and the sweater is gorgeous. To summarize, great fit, perfect length, gorgeous detailing and beautiful on. The gold embroidery is amazing with blond hair. I have a gold lurex turtleneck (from Nordstom) that I put underneath and with gold jewelry(including my Judith Ripka gold chronograph watch) , it's stunning. Don't let the other reviews fool you, this one is a keeper. I only wish they sold a gold lurex tank or turtleneck tank to go with it so I'd have more options for spring. You can wear it with black too but a gold lurex turtleneck or tank really pops the gold embroidery.
Beautiful Sweater But . . .
I was thrilled when I received this sweater. I had planned to wear it on Christmas Eve. However, I had it on for about 45 minutes when I noticed that the material was pilling below the arm area. I had to take it off. Needless to say it went back. This sweater is truly stunning but why should it pill so easily Joan?
Although the pattern on this sweater is very pretty, it is going back to QVC. I normally wear a medium. This medium was shapeless and ill fitting. It gaped at the bust line and was not figure flattering. In fact it looks box shaped on. I am so disappointed, especially at this price point.
What's with the long sleeves
I love the fabric and the gray background is a perfect shade of gray. But the sleeves are 26 inches long, I am 5'2' and the sleeves cover my whole hand. I pushed them up my arm but had a lot of fabric bunched up. I then tried to fold them, it took 3 folds. The design is nice so I may keep it. Not sure yet.
