Funny side story - I bought 2 very small things as stocking stuffers for my daughter. The checkout girl was all 'tude and I'm so cool. Well, I go home and open the shopping bag and guess what? She didn't put one of my items in there and instead there was an opened box of Midol. I kid you not. It's so bizarre I'm not even sure how it is possible that happened. So yes, I walked out with a USB splitter and an open box of Midol from UO. Hmm...
As soon as I spotted the sparkly fox, I knew I would be doing some try-ons. I LOVE foxes. Love 'em. Is it because they're sly and sleek? Is it because they are adorable? Is it because many a folk song has been written about them? I don't know but I love fox. Combine that with sequins and I am toast.
Cooperative Cute Embellished Front Sweater (S and M respectively - I think)
Okay - the sweater material is total cr*p. It is not well made - but the sequin fox is! Adorable. I will not pay $69 for this because I'm pretty sure it won't last that long but when it goes on sale I am pouncing. Where will I wear a sparkly fox sweater? I don't care if I wear it to bed, I think I have to have it. So darling.

Foxes again but way less flattering. This was too reminiscent of something you pick up at a thrift store because you think it's sort of funny and retro and nerdy but in a cool way. The foxes are still cute.
Some other sweaters that are tempting:
Cooperative Intarsia Sweater - above-mentioned babysitter has hedgehog version. Cute.
Minimarket Notes Sweater - I'm a music teacher, it's almost irresistible
Maimi Bird Sweater - I love birds as much as I love foxes. I think.
PJ by Peter Jensen Animal Face Sweater - Deer aren't half bad either
Anyone else check out UO ever?
