Ok , so while I rummaged through my mind to find inspiration for this I got sidetracked by a familiar tune playing in the background. I looked over to my television and I noticed that Gullah Gullah Island was on TV, and while I watched I stopped thinking about what I was supposed to do and as I tend to do whilst watching shows from the 90s I judged the fashion as if I was Nina Garcia on Project Runway (to be fair I usually like to pretend I’m Heidi Klum most of the time but on this night I was Nina Garcia, roll with it and stay with me.) Anywho, I noticed that I finally figured out where my love for obnoxious prints stems from and then I got the brilliant idea to inform everyone of a trend I live for.
YES! GLORIOUS, OBNOXIOUS, BILL COSBY LIKE, NORDIC TIME SWEATERS!!! Now I know that you’re probably thinking that it’s a hideous style and you’re scared that Mr. Huxtable will stalk you and shank you just to get his hands on your new found trend, but trust me with the right style you too can join me in the land of awesomely obnoxious sweatertopia!
Here are two examples of very tamed versions of the sweaters I live for. I tend to be a bit more outrageous with my sweater choices but most of you will appreciate these more polished versions. Also, just a tad of advice I tend to wear my obnoxious sweaters a bit over sized depending on the fit and while these two particular sweaters may be a bit pricey, you can always rummage through your local thrift shops to find even greater and obnoxious-er sweaters at lesser prices.
