Last year around the holidays a friend of mine hosted a party which required one thing of all the guests invited - wear something that glitters, glistens, shines, shimmers, or sparkles. So, as we’re in the last weeks of the season where people wear crazy Christmas sweaters and other attire, it seemed appropriate to find some items that represent over-the-top style from eras past. Just like the ghost of Christmas Past, embellished and bedazzled sweaters make appearances at Goodwill throughout the year, and they just seem to cry out for someone to take them home and appreciate their gaudy beauty. And that person would be me! I started collecting “trophy sweaters” from the 1970s, 80s and 90s a few years back because I couldn’t believe the designs (which went from mild-to-wild) and I wanted to create a documentation of sorts.
