This pretty much sums up my feelings for the garment commonly called the hooded sweatshirt.
I've got one word for you, Internets, and that word is "BRRRRRR." Because apparently April has decided to be exponentially chillier than March starting this weekend, which has been a refresher course in things like "freeze advisories" and "layering clothing" and "being utterly cold and miserable for no dang good reason."
On the bright side, this cool spell does mean that my collection of hoodie sweatshirts does get a bit more use before spring gives way to summer. And it also means that I can cram in one more hoodie post on here, because that's the rule I just made up: if it's not ridiculous to wear, it's not ridiculous to post about.
So on that note, let's get this party started.
First things first, the description of this hoodie claims that it is not an octopus hoodie, but a pocket monster hoodie. But between you and me, I think it can be whatever kind of creature hoodie you want to it be as long as the creature in question has got tentacles.
Question: Does the presence of a ruffle elevate a hoodie sweater into the realm of dress wear? And if so, would somebody please buy me this for Christmas? Because I desperately need to make this a part of my wardrobe.
To the makers of this hoodie--Appliqué: You're doing it right. *high fives*
I like how the Shakespeare quotes on this hoodie aren't just one big quote or quotes from just one play/sonnet--they are from all over the Bard's bibliography. It's like a stealth pop quiz for Brit Lit.
And just because this needs to be shared, here's a Totoro hoodie sweater-dress:
And yes, I'm aware that this is actually geared towards cosplayers, but I don't care. I would wear this thing around the house and not even care. However, I would wear pants, but that's just me.
See you Wednesday!
