Okay, even just the SOUND of "cropped sweater" should make you cringe a little. Like, it's supposed to keep you warm but your belly is showing? What sort of logic IS that? But when I saw this one at Express last week (when I was supposed to be Christmas shopping but hey! 50% off!) I was drawn to it. The beacon of light opened up over its hanger and I grabbed it without even trying it on. And lo, I heard a voice, "AJ. BUY ME NOW." Who am I to argue with the clothing gods? They also wanted me to buy yesterday's leather leggings. Go figure.
