You are shining some glory on me.


You know those disgusting t-shirts dudes wear with an arrow pointing up that says ‘The Man’ and then an arrow pointing in the opposite direction that says ‘The Legend’? Well, in my own mind I am ‘the man’ and my phoenix sweater is ‘the legend’. Seriously, I’ve worn it 38745 times on this blog and it never gets old (at least to me).

Further proof that the phoenix is a legend? I watched Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist (which tried to be a lot more clever than it actually was, in my opinion) and guess who else is wearing a phoenix? DEVENDRA BANHART. His cameo part featuring a phoenix sweater was actually the most memorable part of the movie. Seriously dude, I know you’re famous, but you’re stepping onto my territory! Not cool, Devendra.

I agree with you about Nick and Nora's Playlist.
Your hair is growing in rather nice.

It is a marvelous sweater.

A great sweater, but Nick and Norah is amazing!! Maybe the book would have proven more clever to you, you should read it! (:

The jumper is rather amazing. It looks so damn comfy and warm! I recently bought myself an old granny sweater which I've uploaded to the blog. People may think it's ugly but I love it!

Yeah, that sweater is awesome. I totally covet it.

I agree with you about the movie. Though I went in thinking I wouldn't like it at all; so I did like it because of my low expectations.

Kimberellie said...

ps. your blog is totally awesome. I am officially in love with it. And I am glad to see you are from Canada (go Canada!).

Peaches said...

OMG. YES, that sweater is legendary.

Nick and Norah's super long mp3 list whatever. You would have to tie me down and drug me...

Xu Box said...

Oh the legendary sweaters we marvel at! Seriously, how do we live without sweaters? Is it completely asshole of me to knock that movie? I thought it terrible and contrived. On the other hand, you look amazing!

Love the sweater! :D

Nick and Nora is one of my guilty pleasure favorites, but I totally agree, it does try awfully hard to be "hipster/indie." I can't help but like it, though! :)

I'm not even gonna lie. I see a phoenix and think of the one from Harry Potter. Fawkes? I better stop, my need is showing. That sweater? Is infinitely cooler than Devandra's.

Danielle said...

Definitely an awesome sweater!

sarah said...

Becca Jane said...

Those t-shirts are lame, but your phoenix sweater is fabulous.

Wear that sweater to a Phoenix concert and earn precisely 1,000 hipster points.

R2K said...

Nice web page, the blogger is very pretty.

Amelia said...

That is a pretty epic sweater. I need more tacky-ish sweaters.

Bee said...

I LOVE YOU FOR ONE THOUSAND YEARS!!!!

I remembered that sweater from that movie, I've been trying to find a photo of it, and I've googled the crap out of it, and could never find one (my web skillz are seriously lacking).

Anyway, the point of this is, I've been on the hunt for a sweater like that from the movie, and I'm one hundred percent jealous/in love with your top.

I love the colour combo.....I'm kind of obsessed with that pinky shade of salmon at the moment

bri said...
