Faithful readers may recall the heartwarming story of my stumpy Christmas tree. In the midst of my unpacking I finally discovered where the top third of the tree was hidden - in a box with a number of sweaters. Of course! Why wasn't that the first place for me to look, especially as the rest of the tree was wrapped in blue plastic like a forgotten artifact?
At least I found several more sweaters, intact if a bit musty. I'm giving several away as I've learned that (1) olive is not a flattering color and (2) turtlenecks and rollnecks look equally appalling on me. Despite the happy memories of wearing said sweater (vintage J.Crew) over flannel pajamas on cold mornings, eating crepes and drinking hot chocolate.
I have a sweater like that too... Only it's a dark plum/brown color. I want to wear it, but it makes me appear 30 lbs. heavier than I actually am... Can't get rid of it - what if we get a freak blizzard down here and it's the only thing to keep me warm???
