I was thinking ahead to the holiday season and thinking it would be really funny to get all my co-workers to wear ugly Christmas sweaters to work at the library. Ya know — like those ugly Christmas sweater parties. I’d wear a Nordic chic one. Not too pretty. Not too ugly. Just right.
While doing my very important ugly Christmas sweater research I was reminded of the Cosby sweater . I started poking around the internet and found the designer who created the one-of-a-kind sweaters for Cosby. His name is Koos Van Den Akker. He’s dutch, obviously. You have to watch this little video about him. He is hilarious! I just love him. He says about his own designs — “It is a very thin line between something that is absolutely awful and something of genius.” Ha. I love that. That makes me smile because so often when I’m thrifting with my friend Kirsten I will ask her — “Is this fabulous or awful?” Right or wrong I like stuff that teeters on the edge.
