So earlier in the week, I made mention of my crusty sweater of atrociousness. You know, the one you (I) can't give up because you (I) bought it so long ago that it remembers all the fooly foolish things you've (I've) ever done even better than you (I) do? Yeah.
Well, as it turns out, many of you darling readers are roughly my age (imagine that) and also subscribe to the Adore a Nasty Cardi school of fashion obsession. Specifically, Lisa of All Things Gale, who somehow challenged me, I don't really know how it happened, to write all 7 Quick Takes today about that gross thing. And I said:
Hah! I'm already on take 3! Anyway, remember when I used to have nice, smooth, straight hair? And as long as I hit it with the blow dryer it would looked like I just stepped out of a salon? Mmmmmhmmmmm, yes ma'am- wore the cardi then, too...
|This was our rental back in CA. Before most of you knew me! And look, I'm wearing that necklace from 2 Sundays ago!|
What's that you say? You want a better view of the crustiness?
Clearly made of the finest materials. Exquisite craftsmanship to be sure.
With not one but TWO WHOLE POCKETS. Perfect for toting
cigarettes binkies vessels of holy water. Remind me to tell you about having too much champagne at my mom's best friend's house the New Years Eve that I was 16 and how I wore this sweater to "go for a walk" over some enormous hedges and into the middle of a lawn. At 2 a.m.
Hey do you know when else I'll be wearing the Cardi of Nast? Tonight! During the #OfficeSpace twitter party!
Instead of 7 takes about a sweater, Cari did 7 takes about the par-tay. Check it! And join us!
