Mickey meets the skull...or...the un-classic classic

Whenever I read those lists of "classic must haves" in fashion magazines...you know, the ones that include a black Chanel bag, perfect red lipstick, and a trench...I wonder where the un-classic classics are. The pieces that have been around for long enough to obtain classic status but, for whatever reason, don't fit in the neutral color palette-d world of the "must have" list.

Like...Lucien Pellat-Finet's sweaters...made from ridiculously soft and light cashmere...in an exuberant mix of colors and designs...they're fashion Disneyland (and I don't say that purely because I'm lucky enough to own the Mickey's skull design...or that for the price of one of these sweaters you could send a family of four on vacation to the Magic Kingdom*).

All of which is leading me...via a very circuitous route...to asking what your un-classic classics are?

* I should add that the only reason I actually own an LLP sweater (as opposed to just drooling over it in pictures) is because it was drastically reduced

    Hello miss!
    The sweater looks incredibly soft for some reason. I'm not a big color person, but there's something about that shade of purple that makes it instantly appealing.

    My un-classic classic is definitely my vintage blue-green pencil skirt. The fit is very much like the secretary outfits in "Mad Men", but the color is anything but conservative.
