Was My Bargain Really a Bargain?

I'm a sweater lover in the winter and it's my "go to" choice when getting dressed. Not cardigans but pullovers. They keep me warm and are comfortable. Over the holidays I found a good sale on some sweaters so I bought myself one. The original price was over $40 and this was on the closeout rack for $15. Since the selection was very limited the one I chose was in an Army green color. Green isn't my color but for the price I figured it would do for around the house. When getting dressed this morning I decided to wear my new sweater but the color is so drab and now I feel drab wearing it. Normally I choose blue or even black but this green isn't very cheerful. I love the sweater, the style, the price but not the color. Now I'm second guessing myself for buying it.

You can make that green pretty and cheerful since it was on the clearance rack and they will not be one to trade it for, unless you just asked for the money back and got something else. Dress it up with one of those neck things, you know the ones you slip over your head, or a white or cream color lace collar. Add a jewelry, a pretty pen or a long necklace. To go out in the sweater how about a nice pretty colorful coat, maybe some leggings with knee boots? I think you can decorate it to make it pretty, even if its a green you do not care for.

My sweaters tend to extremes. I have black, brown and drab green. And I have fuschisa (a colour I usually avoid), sky blue, turquoise, and red (which I usually only wear between Thanksgiving and New Year). I tend to prefer the drab this time if year. I like to be warm and well camoflaged.
