yeah, yeah, yeah…i know what you’re thinking. well, you could be thinking one of two things. i know, i know…there’s a lot of BLUE in this outfit. maybe it photographs odd, but it looks great in person, really! even a couple clients today agreed. then, again, when i stab people in the neck & back, they tend to say nice things to me…hahaha! i was happy to find this missoni for target sweater that A) was actually on the nearly empty racks, B) my size, C) in my favorite shades of blue & D) not the same black/brown/beige/peach/baby blue zig zag pattern i’ve seen ad nauseum around the city. the pretty wavy navy/turquoise sleeves are really textured & of better quality than most of the rest of the target collab. i never thought i’d end up getting a piece of this collection after the
shitshow debacle that ensued when it debuted.
also, i’m sure you’re thinking “pants…pants? i thought you hate pants.” well, yes, i do hate pants, but even i had to jump on the colored pants bandwagon, back when i was obsessed with red pants long ago. so, i had these blue pants made when i was in bangkok & i’m amazed they precisely match some of the blue interwoven in the front pattern of this sweater. even as a self-professed pants hater, i still have to admit that i’m a new englander through & through & there are some rainy miserable days that you just can’t deal with putting on a dress & trying to look cute. however, that doesn’t mean you can’t put in some effort, right? even though it’s dreary out…why would i pair this sweater with some boring ol’ pair of black pants? so, to heck with it, balls to the wall, let’s go for color! colored PANTS, i say!
