I have this loving relationship with a zippy sweatshirt.
I bought it for $7 3 years ago from a thrift shop and wore it through my entire pregnancy. It magically fit me as a beached whale and now as a normal person. These are all the things that are awesome about it:
- zippered pockets
- offset zipper
- fits me perfectly
- wide cuffs and bottom hem with no elastic
- it’s black
- a cowl style collar rather than a hood
It is completely ragged. The cuffs are all chewed up and I can’t even say it’s starting to fray, it IS frayed. I apparently have razor sharp elbows, too, as I have poked a hole in the right elbow and the left is about to do the same. I love love love love love this sweatshirt. It is made by “Roots Yoga”.
Ross hates it. Because it is bedraggled and because it rightfully belongs in the rag bag. I don’t disagree with him but can’t seem to part with the damn thing. So I bought canvas iron on patches to repair the elbows, but now they are stiff and have changed the whole zen of this sweatshirt. I am not so in love anymore, just “in like”.
And so, I have come around to Ross’ side of things, and today, I bid farewell to my favourite go anywhere, do anything, comfy sweatshirt / jacket. And now I must hunt online for a suitable replacement.
