Restyled Faux Fur Sweater

HELLO, I WANTED TO KEEP THIS VERY COMFORTABLE CABLE KNIT SWEATER, SO IN THE SPIRIT OF THIS PROJECT, I EMBELLISHED IT. Veronica Sheaffer/J.Crew COLLAB.

The sweater came free from a friend at a frock swap. Alliteration.

And somehow I gathered all of these faux fur trimmings over the years and had them squirreled away in a box I discovered recently. I roughly matched the cable pattern in the sweater, and did some freeforming along the neckline, shoulder and sleeve.

It’s just a very casual embellishment to luxe things up a bit. Oh hai, madras shorties! Cannot believe I’ve worn you out in public while with my mother-in-law and child.

I hate salad so goddamn much.

But I love this cozy, fur-trimmed sweater. I put it on yesterday to take pictures, and then wore it out partying all night.

Ate a bunch of queso too, which is way better than … salad. Okay, I have to make a million presents now. GOODBYE.
