Bird Watching: ootd

    I don't know why, but everywhere I looked this past fall/winter someone was wearing or selling a fox sweater.  Or, occasionally a dog sweater.  I don't know why fox sweaters were such a fad, I think it had something to do with people on t.v. wearing them.  Whatever the case, I really liked them and started to look for my own.  Sadly, as I've mentioned in other posts, as soon as someone famous wears something the price goes through the roof.  
    So, I couldn't really afford a fox sweater this year...maybe I'll get one next year when they're out of style, but I did find this weird and wonderful bird sweater. It instantly made me think of something my grandmother would've sent my brother for Christmas when we were kids; the kind of thing that made him fear her gifts and question her love. It is the epitome of ugly sweaters and childhood holiday dread all rolled into one, so of course I had to have it.  I love my ugly giant bird sweater and I shall wear it as often as possible.  And, who knows, maybe I'll start a new trend.

  1. Love this look! Also, that bird sweater is far from ugly, in my opinion :) mind you, I do have a soft spot for any animal-printed clothing! I really enjoy how you pulled together some classic colours and silhouettes, and made a modern look! #goals
    Lots of love,
