Maybe it's weird to talk about a color like this, but I have had an anti-blue stance for some time. Not anti-everything-blue, just anti-blue on my own body. Anyhow, it was basically right after I made my hate of blue known that I started wearing it all the time... like this, my new knitwear basic in navy.
I think what's really special about this sweater is that it's just a long rectangle draped over me with a head-hole in the middle. Then, there are two stitches going straight down underneath each armpit. Hence the construction is basically closing the sides of a poncho. I love this silhouette. Shapelessness wins again.
Oh, what's also special is that it's made by Ellen Tracy. Long time readers probably know I'm not above shopping in department store sections far outside my "demographic." I'm pretty sure some of the raddest shit out there is in "mom" stores. Please believe I've started pausing as I pass by Chico's and Coldwater Creek (so much floor length, shapeless, and linen!). Please also know that I've yet to walk through those doors. In the meantime, on my road to advanced style, there are things like this:
Do you have an anti-color? Will you ever do a 180 and start wearing it constantly, or is that just me being strange?
