fake shop friday: blanket poncho

I have an eternal love for cardigans. I wear them pretty much all year long. Short, lightweight ones in the summer, long sleeve fuzzy ones in the winter, and a special “house cardigan” with the elbows hanging on by a a few threads (but no holes yet!). They’re cozy, easy to throw on, and they keep my arms nice and warm.

Enter these ponchos I’m seeing all over the place. I want pretty much every one I see, but really how can those keep you warm with giant holes where the arms should be? Especially walking in the not-so-forgiving bitter winds New York likes to share. I have come to the conclusion that certain styles are only meant for people who own cars–or happen to live in places with happily moderate San Francisco-like weather.

Oh, how nice would it be to walk around in a blanket disguised as a fashionable top…
