Chenille Sweater and Flare Culottes

Head to toe: Sweater and culottes, TJ Maxx // Clutch, vintage // Booties, Dr. Scholl's (last season) // Necklace, Alex Woo

When I first saw chenille sweaters were making a comeback, I was dubious. I never loved them as a kid when they were hot in the '90s—I think it was a tactile thing, velvety feeling things always freaked me out. Apparently, 20-some years can change your perspective. When I saw this perfect mauve sweater for a few bucks at TJ Maxx, I had to have it. And now I think I need 100 more. It has just enough sheen to feel more festive and dressed up than your average nubby sweater, it never wrinkles, and it feels so super soft to the touch (I've gotten over my velvet issues, it seems).

I do have one gripe about this sweater that I shared in a small Instagram rant. It's hand-wash only, and it drives me crazy when cheap items are hand-wash or dry-clean only. I'll be delicate with my J. Crew cable-knits, but this, unfortunately, went for a spin in the wash. I laid flat to dry, and it doesn't seem any worse for the wear. Ain't nobody got time for that, especially with less than a week until Christmas! Who's ready?
