almost as good as cosby sweaters

WINTER BREAK IS HERE. God, I can't tell you how stoked my sanity is on this. Time for some sweaterly inspiration, yes?

Mohair, Joni Mitchell, Kate Moss, collage on a photo from Pop, Marc Jacobs FW10, vintage JPG ad, cat, Sam Falls.

And a repost of a collage I made in the summer while desperately wanting winter (credits here.)

Tavi, you're on vacation already? Lucky duck! I don't get out till Christmas Eve. That Sam Falls sweater is amazing. I think ima need to take an embroidery needle to one of my preexisting sweaters now.

I'm loving the Nordic knits right now. They'll never be out of style. Give me a Norway sweater, or a classic Aran knit, and I'm a happy, warm girl.

Tavi Dear,
a HELOOOO from.......... BRASIL!!

I loved this Winter Post (you know: here in Brasil it is Spring, almost Summer. So hot!)

Girl: you have a great taste for puting things together. A natural and personal talent OR have you followed the steps of someone special in your family??

For example: I love to write and I've got this insane and sweet inclination from my Grampa.

Stay in the Peace of God!!
You, Your Family and All Your Fans!!

Sweet jesus, Tavi, that sweater is amazing. Now I want it. And every single other one on the blog. They are like the northern lights in sweater form; pure magic. Also, the writing on that blog is how I wish everyone talked all the time.

zoomslow said...

Is Grace Coddington talking on her cat-phone?

And for some reason that "Gee, Thanks" reminds me of Andy Warhol :-)

Ugh, 3 more days of sleepless studying for me... but the picture with the scribbled-out faces? Fantastic. Particularly that neon-yellow shirt...

fashionslap.net said...

Do you ever feel like a Twiggy? Or do you feel like you were born in the wrong decade because seriously you are truly a 70's girl.

Emily said...

Great post! Definitely a little more stylish than a Cosby sweater, love the reference LOL. Cute kitten!

That bird sweater! I NEED that bird sweater!!

In the early 90s, Bjork would crop her sweaters to be above the navel, and layer them over maxi dresses.

This trend is overdue for a comeback.

*stares in Tavi's direction*

Sweaters!!
such a statement for fall.
My favorite is the cerulean from prada, the one Anne is wearing on the movie, and the one from the last collection!

Exactly the same!

mmm, sweaters. I'm partial to oversized men's sweaters, either thrifted or hand-me-down. And your post awhile back on Black Swan was great. I saw the movie and was so creeped out and tense the whole time but it was SO GOOD.

The Odd and Chic said...

You're awesome :-)

Love the collage.

Engreida said...

Since you're so tiny, you could get some large vintage wool sweaters and wash them in hot water for a boiled sweater look... Even if they have holes, cause they should shrink right up!

thats one cosy looking sweater.

Sweaters are the lifeblood that fuels the dreams of champions.
Especially when said champion gets hugs all day because their "sweater looks cozy."
