I Won't Wear Hammer Pants

...But I'll wear this.

I was in a thrift store about a month or so ago and came across this sweater. I hesitated, thinking, "I'd never wear this!" but I kept going back to it. I ended up buying it before I left, promising myself I'd wear it, no matter how ridiculous I felt. Good thing I did, because I actually really like it.

I present to you: My totally 80's bow print sweater.


This is my fat little Christmas tree. Nothing special for decoration, but we DID cut it down from my neighbor's backyard (this is noteworthy because I live in a city.)

I have hooker boots. For real.
Fun edit:
Later in the night when he dropped me off at my house, my boyfriend gave me a piggyback ride to my doorstep because, in platforms, I couldn't walk on the solid ice that coated my driveway.

Mmhmm, yes, I have enormous feet. I was also in a cranky and not-feeling-well mood, hence the faces.

In continuing with my basement-themed photos (because I still can't make it outside, for crying out loud!), I got dizzy and made a chair of this laundry basket.

The bow print. Epic.

My holiday moose. Moose are my favorite animal.

Sweater: Thrifted
Leggings: American Apparel
Boots: Bongo
Bag: I forget.
Pin: I forget.

I think your bow print sweater was totally worth the contemplation! Its so cute and I like how you've given it an edgy look with the leggings & boots!

toni - Thanks! I'm glad I made the right choice and I'm not kicking myself for it. I actually passed over this epic multicolored ridiculous sequined sweater that I wish I'd bought now. It was INSANE.

Emily - Thank you! I didn't want to look too cheesy and silly, so the edginess felt necesary :)
