It’s February! Time to settle back into my rut.
You know what that means.
How fun, this sweater?
It’s 100% cotton, which isn’t my favored fiber. I prefer wool, for it’s resilience and superior heating/cooling properties.
Wool is to temperature what lettuce is to digestion.
For the mathematicians, [Wool:temperature::lettuce:digestion].
Speaking of fun, do you think the phenomenon of Hamilton has opened the door for a multi-media reappraisal of Cotton Mather?
Isn’t he deserving of his own rap-backed biopic? Hard 2 Say.
But for those who have been reserving judgment on Hamilton, who aren’t ready to jump on the NYT/Rolling Stone/Tony/Pulitzer bandwagon and are waiting for The Directrice’s review . . . it is coming.
This sweater, in addition to having an enormous white cowl, has deep vents at the sides.
On the model, the sweater was shown with the front tucked into a miniskirt. The back was left out . . . and nearly covered the skirt. She looked great, but it was not the look for me.
Taking inspiration from a colleague who has turned more than one garment into a Caped Garment using a belt, I decided to partial cinch here.
I think it works well.
One of my indispensable striped tee shirts, showing me once again why it is indispensable.
For contrast, here are a couple of photos showing the sweater unbelted.
Ellie posed a question under Monday’s post, Eiffel Duck: What’s the word on wearing necklaces and brooches at the same time? I shared my thoughts in response to her post (look back here), but I’d like to hear your views. What do you think?
