Theme Sweaters


So the Ring Sweater was just an introduction. My mom had a shitload of sweaters. I surmise that growing up in Taiwan sweaters were either expensive or highly sought after. I can't find an explanation for why we have more sweaters more than any other article of clothing. It's odd considering we live in a place where T-shirt weather prevails even in winter. Now that I think of it, Taiwan is hot and humid all year round so I don't know why she'd grow up wanting sweaters. 

Being the collector, my mom was beyond your average cardis and crewnecks. She liked theme sweaters, especially holiday ones. While her collection is no Gem Sweater museum, it's still a little nutty.


"Urban Christmas" is one of my favorites. 


Here's a panda pocket because that's where pandas belong. 


A Fly Girl worthy bolero.


I wear the Anne Klein II lion when I'm feeling ferocious. He's made of angora, wool, and lurex.


When the family visits for the holidays, they like to wear the sweaters as much as they can. Haven't seen these sweaters in a while so I can only assume they liked them a little to much.
