Untrust Us


This sweater was the first thing I saw in Tavi's package, and I swear to god I nearly screamed when I pulled it out because it is something I would totally buy for myself in a heartbeat. I may not be royalty, but in my head I'm the Queen of tacky 80s sweaters. I had planned to spend the morning putting together outfits from the package but this was the first thing I came up with and I didn't want to take it off. The patterned tights were my used to belong to my mom, like, 20 years ago and they're still going strong. I swear they don't make clothing like they used to.

P.S. -Photobooth is the best way to capture the beauty of ridiculous sweaters.

That is a pretty cool sweater, and is that a Bowie tee I spied too? I also like the headband in your New Years Eve photos.Wow, I also have that photo(it's on the sidebar of my blog)of Kurt Cobain. It was on one of my friends blogs, and I was all RARE PHOTOS!!
I'm not sure of your clothing size, but I have an xs kharki Kurt Cobain tee that fails to fit me anymore. I'll put a photos up if your interested in obtaining it.
Hope

I like the sweater. And it's true about older clothing being much better... a lot of my mom's things are still holding up (although I wouldn't want to wear ALL of them- there were hits and misses in the 80's. Haha). -kimberleighROSE

Tavi said...

Aw man, it is totally perfect! You really are the queen of tacky sweaters and pull them off better than anyone I know and all models, fashion editors, etc etc EVERYWHERE. Kudos.

Kelly said...

Ally said...

I am slightly infatuated with your new/old sweater.
Also, I really admire you for being one of those people who will wear tights in winter as they walk around in the snow for the sake of an outfit. I have poor circulation, so I freeze in jeans and don't dare brave tights, although I want to.
