>WBW – Ugly Sweater Day

>It’s very appropriate that TKW chose this week’s theme as a last goodbye to winter, since while driving the muncher to daycare this morning I saw SNOW! Ugh, not fair, my body is totally ready for spring. Well anyway, I’m sure this is not the ugliest sweater I ever owned, but in retrospect it was bad. My mother hated it, my friends kidded me about it, but I thought it was super cool. I bought it at Benetton which was soooo hip in 1988. This is my 13th birthday party, where I look like a complete dork. I had to include these three other girls in the picture, Kate, Liz, and Ab, since they are still my best friends and read my blog. I want their boyfriends/husbands to know what dorks they once were too.

This sweater was HUGE on me, and was shaped like a box. The colors totally did not match, though that was the style of Benetton. This was one of my most favorite sweaters despite it’s fugliness. Here I am wearing it yet again four years later on a youth group trip to Ocean City with the ultra cool girls and my crush of the moment, David Sachs, my fearless youth group leader. I swear the sweater was so big I look pregnant or something. Notice the rolled up pants, which all five girls in the picture are also wearing.

I have tried to look up David on Google since he is a professional photographer, but I can’t find him anywhere. Boohoo. He was such a nice guy.

Well that’s WBW for me! Happy Humpday!

I had three big ole boxy sweaters, but those came from The Limited. i think they were either Outback Red or the other name brand they sold (it escapes me right now). Bennetton was my rugby shirt place. I had two of those.And Coca-Cola shirts! Remember those? Ahhh, clothing memories.
