Thursdays are for What the Hell is This?

I found this sweater while browsing the online store of a shop I'm sure you'll all recognize.

It was so horrible I had to zoom in for a close up. Are the shoulders really covered in orange fur?

Why, yes. Yes, they are.
I realized this deserved further investigation. So while on a recent trip to the mall I found the sweater in question in, what I believe, is an even uglier colorway, and tried it on for you, my dear readers. This is the depth of love I feel for you!

It's worse than I thought. And so heavy. I tried to strike a pose in which I looked horrified by the sweater but instead I look like I'm yawning. As if to say, "Giant pink, furry-shouldered, cropped sweaters are so last week."

Wait - that looks like a house. Did you actually buy it and bring it home for this picture?! Hehehe. If you did, the next question is... did you return it?

I'm with Sasha... damn ugly sweater, but great color on you. I know you were going for WTF Thursday, but girl, you're looking good. Love the new look (hair and makeup). Hope you are giving those Frye boots a chance - there have been many a boot that were a little uncomfortable in the beginning that are now the Most Comfortable boots I own now.

That's commitment. Well done.

That one caught my eye too. What were they thinking? Perfect for Halloween, though.

This is definitely going the extra mile to verify the facts. Too bad they were correct. Thanks for your dedication to keeping us entertained!

I think that store also has a knitted snuggie in their fall collection. Similar to the one in the Debbie Bliss magazine.

That coral thing makes the orange-and-navy(black?) look good!

I know I've seen those dressing rooms before, but I can't remember what store. . .
