My mom calls this oversize shrug "the garment", because it's so floppy and odd. Most clothes are either comfy OR impractical, not both! The resurgence of capelets notwithstanding...
Presumably, this jacket is supposed to be warm--the material is "soft and cosy 100% organic cotton brushed fleece"--but it has three-quarter-length sleeves. To which I say, "???" At least it's super pretty (and on sale, FYI).
Today's silhouette: Lina Lamont from Singin' in the Rain mixed with Avril Lavigne circa "Here's To Never Growing Up":
Naturally the background of that collage is an embroidery sample archived by Boston Public Library (Flickr).
