This year we have a special international bonus sweater to add to the collection! I give to you my Seoul Sister, Dana. I miss her dearly.
Annyeong haseyo! Greetings sweater lovers from Korea. I'm usually
behind-the-scenes on the "8 Days of Sweaters" but I'm stepping out of
the shadows (boy, was it cold there!) and in to the limelight to
showcase a Christmas sweater, Gangnam style. There is a lack of thrift
stores in Seoul (as Koreans prefer to buy new clothes) so I had to pay
full retail for this gem. It's worth it! Santa's fluffy white beard
applique is the star of the show as it pops against a midnight
sky background, while his traditional rosy red cheeks are highlighted with
machine embroidery. In fashion-obsessed Seoul, Santa knows what's hot
on the runway as he sports a cap in of-the-moment plaid. And, although
written in English, Santa's jolly laugh brings joy to children of any
language. This sweater is 5 year old Korean child approved. I wish I
could be ho ho home for the holidays but being a part of this magical
annual tradition will have to do. Merry Christmas to all!
