{Almost daily outfit of the day} Flummoxed. 1.6.12

Thrifted Gap cardigan; American Eagle thermal tee; Gap legging jeans; Gap belt; DSW boots; thrifted vintage Coach bag

I tend to avoid waxing poetic about my clothes too much here on the blog. But today I would like to address the love-hate relationship I have with this cardigan. Wearing it demands the labor-intensive, fastidious, and specific placement of a belt to ensure the presence of my waist and prevention of unflattering bunching and resulting illusion of a food baby. Furthermore, the heavy wool knit demands a cold, blustery day to avoid sweltering to death. However, the cardigan's dreamy colors and cozy hug comfort me in a way few articles of clothing do. I suppose that in clothes, much as in life, you can't have it all.

  3. You work harder than me -- this is exactly the kind of thing I can't stand to deal with myself. The precise belt placement with the risk of things moving all around. Ugh! I like things to stay put so I can forget about them. You make it look easy, but you won't trick me into trying such things ;-)

  4. I have a piece or two like this. I save them for around-the-house wear when I reserve the right to be comfortable even while looking lumpy!
