I have an aversion to anything restrictive including: underwire (torture devices from the victorian era), turtlenecks (my neck needs freedom to do double-takes for those w/cool style), wearing a coat in the car (causes frustration fastening my seatbelt) & tight sweaters (all of the above).
As a result, my closet is full of oversized sweaters and I frequently check the men's side, as the fit is similar & usually a lot less. If I go oversized on top, I like to balance it out with something feminine or tight-fitting on the bottom.

I picked up this sweater at a boutique on division called Penelope's; which my mom and I checked out because they carry a hard-to-find designer that we had discovered in Paris. Upon visiting the store, we realized it's a great find in chicago, full of unique (& reasonable) clothing lines for men & women. Don't forget to check both departments!
