Love It or Hate It -- December 8

When I was a little girl, I had what was called, for reasons I cannot comprehend, a monkey jacket. It was a little long-haired white faux fur cropped jacket with ribbing around around the bottom and at the cuffs. I loved that jacket -- I felt super-cool when I was wearing it and was sad when I outgrew it (especially because that meant I had to hand it down to my bratty little sister, who'd gotten a pink one when I got my white one and then got to enjoy mine after that -- SO unfair). I haven't thought of it for years, but it came to mind when I saw this

Alice + Olivia Fuzzy Short Cardigan

So while part of me has warm feelings for this because it reminded me of my long-ago monkey, the other part thinks that it looks a little like an old ratty gorilla costume that's been rented by too many frat boys on Halloween.

What do you think? Is it whimsical? Or grotty? Vote in the poll in the top right corner.

What immediately came to mind when I saw it was "someone left the cake out in the ra-a-a-in..."

All I know is, that model's all over Revolve and Shopbop, and she always looks, um, slightly ill. She needs retirement.
