an iconic fashion moment that changed my life: karen o's stained sweater

FASHION IS NOT PERFECT

Important Precautions

READ CARE LABELS ON FABRIC

PRE-TEST STAIN REMOVAL AGENTS on an inconspicuous area of the article. Apply several drops of the agent (such as water, dry cleaning solvent, detergent solution, bleach or other recommended remover) and rub gently with a clean white towel. If color transfers to the cloth or a color change occurs, a professional cleaner should be consulted.

USE SOLVENTS IN A WELL VENTILATED ROOM WHERE THERE IS NO CHANCE OF ELECTRICAL SPARKS FROM REFRIGERATORS, FANS, ETC. DO NOT SMOKE. DO NOT USE SOLVENTS NEAR OPEN FLAME OR PILOT LIGHT, AVOID SPILLING ON SKIN OR CLOTHES. WASH OFF IMMEDIATELY IF THIS HAPPENS.

"While trying to come up with the #perfect 2nd entry, I remembered a stain from 2004. Maybe coffee? Maybe ketchup? .... Only Karen O knows, and she doesn't seem to care as she beautifully sings Cheated Hearts in a stained heart sweater. It's #simple, #effortless, #punk, and probably a mistake, but I think it's the coolest accessory ever."
