Fashion Icon: Mr. Rogers
I have a little over 25 cardigans, all "old man style". I even tell my husband he needs one and then they disappear into my wardrobe the next day. Sneaky? No, smart! My favorite sweaters come from American Apparel, as pretentious as that sounds, but I have bragging rights to say I have grown a great collection of them, thanks to my brother's discount. JCrew makes some great fitting sweaters but those are thrice what I normally pay. Each time I go thrifting, I am on the lookout for more Mr. Rogers status type sweaters. Most women have shoes and purses, I just happened to have sweaters. It is a much cheaper collection anyway, right?
My favorite part of the show was when he changed his shoes and slipped on a sweet looking pair of kicks. What I love about Mr. Rogers is we even share the same birthday. Regardless of the sweaters, he was part of my childhood. He was encouraging, and he always stayed positive.
