With that said, I can't forget to acknowledge the few reasons why I don't particularly love this sweater; it's a little too long, the sleeves are a little billowy, and the neck is warm, yet, often removes my lipstick. In addition, a little too large in all the wrong places, leaving questionable pouches that lead to suspicious of an early hidden pregnancy. Not the case.
With that said, I still can't get rid of it. Even when I take in account my own rule of purging and re-purchasing. This sweater is of a special circumstance. And I think everyone is allowed one... or a few more. See, to find the perfect fit of a staple sweater, it takes time and effort. It takes purchasing, trying on, comparing, and returning - if need be. And even if I find the perfect one, I know there will be parts of me that gets dressed one cold day, and will long for the billowy sleeves and oversized cowl neck with that extra fabric. So I hold on.
Do you have anything you just can't get rid of?
And speaking of perfect cream chunky sweaters, here are a few that have my eye: a turtleneck sweater, a mock neck sweater, a classic, and a hand knit hoodie.
