I thought this sweater was awesome when I ordered it from Urban Outfitters. It was on super-clearance, but I went ahead and ignored that red flag because I love retro 80's wear. Even if I'm in denial that my childhood can be considered "retro," that's not going to stop me from wearing leggings and oversize sweaters every day. And listening to the Bangles on constant rotation.
But I don't think I've ever found an occasion that seemed appropriate for this sweater. And I think I've figured out why: Because it's too fugly for the real world. I realize I'm not doing it any favors by wearing it over my pajama pants and performance fleece in this picture, but trust me.
DESTINATION: Goodwill. I tried to sell it on eBay, but no luck. Then I attempted to give it away on Facebook, but not one of my 300 friends was willing to take it for free.
