Secrets are not always a bad thing. The wise woman discreetly guards her heart, carefully discerning when it’s safe to let someone in. Thus a sense of mystery surrounds her. One who appears plain and simple may be hiding a depth of beauty and substance which is revealed only to those worthy of her trust. Such is the case with this pullover. From the front it appears deceptively understated, but its true identity is hidden around back. Plain stockinette contrasts with leafy lace, yielding a garment that’s casual and sexy all at the same time.
