Remember when the Slanket came out a few years back? (I realize that it is also know as the Snuggie, but I prefer the term Slanket. It reminds me of 30 Rock.) I wanted one so badly, but I knew that I could never allow myself. I am the perfect candidate for a black Slanket. Always cold, I love to cuddle under a big blanket on the couch while I hack away at my Mac. But, quite frankly, they’re embarrassing. A shapeless, oversized blanket with hand-holes, no self-respecting fashionista can own one. So, as much as I craved the Slanket’s warm embrace, I denied myself in the name of style. Until one fine day I came across what has since become known as my fancy black Slanket. An oversized sweater coat made of cashmere and wool, it’s like a Slanket but a million times better. And the best part of all? I can wear my black slanket without anyone being the wiser that I’m essentially wearing a Slanket out for the day.
