Ok so most of them kind of are...although I loved them as a child! My mom wore them and I can remember sitting in her lab and pinching the knotted threads that made up trees and gifts sequined with sparkles. I even sported a few myself...Now everyone wears them...to the tacky Christmas sweater parties. Well Nora loves hers. But then again she looks cute in anything...or nothing ;) Merry Christmas from Nora!
