an elephants trunk raised up is a symbol of good luck, fortune, and basic optimism. in thailand it is the elephant that is considered good luck, regardless of the trunk position.
do you ever find something on the thrift racks that is so fantastic that you wonder who in the world would have given it up? that was the thought that hit me when i found my new elephant sweater. it's knee length so it looks amazing with jeggings, super cozy, makes me smile and, apparently, will bring good luck.
plus, now i know i'm set for all ugly sweater and hipster dress parties invites that may come.
