Marcie: I Broke Down and Bought a Vivid Yellow Sweater

By Marcie Everhart

“…burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles…” — Jack Kerouac

Those who follow me know I have 56 sweaters (this includes heavy winter, light summer, and various shawls), and I’m always whining about my closet clutter. I’ve sworn to not add anything more unless I can think of five ways to wear it, easily. So, this yellow sweater happened — but, but, seriously it looks great and cheerful with everything! It was only $20 at Forever 21, and I can throw it away when it snags and pills. Arghhhhh! Until then — I’m gonna burn like a fabulous yellow roman candle.
