I got this “Boyfriend Cardigan” from Victoria’s Secret on sale. After all the gift card and coupons deals, I ended up paying $12 for it.  When I received it, it looked more like ”Grandma Cardigan” on me rather than “Boyfriend Cardigan.”  I loved the color but the shape was way too big . I wanted to return it but It cost me $5 for shipping. With all the work I had to do, I didn’t think it was worth returning it.  I was upset and decided to donate it to Goodwill.

I put this grandma cardigan with her other friends in the hallway in the box called “donate.” Every time I passed  the area, the grandma cardigan looked at me, as if begging and asking me to give her another chance.  Several time I refused. I refused to even looked at her.  No. No. No! I said to myself.  It’s too bulky and it would short make you look short if you wear it.

One day I stumbled upon another fashion blogger and got an idea. Of course, it was as simple as a “belt.” I arrived home from work, I dug through the donate pile and pulled the “grandma” out of it. She looked so thrilled.  I tried it on… voila… she actually look cute on me.

Out from donate pile and into in treasure pile she went. I convinced her from this day forward that I will be more creative with her and will put her to many uses in the future. Sorry “grandma” for misjudging you. Glad to give you another chance.
