025: if you want to destroy my sweater

I'm not sure what it is, but I have always had an appreciation for the beauty in ugliness. Of course, I can appreciate "classic beauty" or beauty that mainstream media presents to us... but I have always found the real interesting things aesthetically to be the things that were different. Kind of like when people say that the best parts of music are the silences-- the contrast is necessary.

This is a bit of a vague statement but I am basically just getting at this: I love the destroyed look. Shredded tees & now shredded knits are sooo gorgeous. I have done a few shredded tees but I wanted to give sweaters a try. I own absolutely ZERO warm clothes (funny for a canadian gal) so I picked up a new cable knit sweater.






the shorter front hem style that I love oh-so-much.






I was just wearing the sweater with the jeans that I had on... ideally though, it would look best styled with something contrasting-- like sleek leather shorts .

Try it out! Of course, I'm expecting people to tell me that I've got a pull in my sweater (likely the same people that tell me that I have runs in my stockings) but embrace the uniqueness. no one's sweater will be exactly like yours ♥
