Well, okay, the title of this post is sort of misleading. Because I have never met a sweatshirt I did not want to wear (except, perhaps, this one, because as cute as it is I have a feeling that it’s made for a different kind of human being than the one I am). And this list doesn’t include the sweatshirt that I was wearing in yesterday’s post (and that I am, in fact, wearing right this very second).
Not all of the below styles are sweatshirt-priced (although I did leave out this Julie Verhoeven one because I don’t think “sweatshirt” and “1,800” belong in the same sentence), but as I’ve gotten older and grown into a (much) more relaxed, even sporty (?!) look, the kinds of things I’m willing to spend money on have changed. I bought a pair of Louboutins a couple of years ago, and have worn them…I dunno, maybe four times? I recently splurged on a pair of Golden Goose sneakers (on consignment, granted, but still), and have worn them every single day since they arrived.
In short: How much money I’m willing to spend on something has started to be less about what it’s “worth,” and more about what it’s worth to me. And a sweatshirt that’s not schlumpy in the slightest and that I can wear dressed down with jeans and flats or dressed up with leather leggings and heels is exactly the type of thing I want in my closet.
