these gym clothes cost more than my car...

    I love to wear sweatshirts.  Adore it.  I'll pair my dad's old ripped crew-necks with sequin miniskirt.  I'll throw a Gap hoodie underneath a wool blazer.  I'll even layer a thin Champion fleece from the '80s underneath a shift dress, and pair it with tights and boots.  (Yay, Almost-Mod.)

    But as sweatshirts have become acceptable work wear (as long as you style them perfectly), they've also gotten expensive.  Like, really expensive.  Like, "should I get a couple sweatshirts or pay rent?" expensive.

    Some of them - like the Stella McCartney horse jersey, above - are so damn cool, we're in love with them regardless of price.  Others are the simple kind we love to pair with jeans and a statement necklace.  They would be a shopping no-brainer, except they're over $100.

    Is there something special in a luxe sweatshirt?  Or are you better off getting the Boys XL ones at Target?
