This WTF “Leave Me Alone Sweater” Is 2017 in a Nutshell
Some days, we just can’t even. We know you relate. Whether it’s a brief moment or a full day (week? month?), everyone needs to escape from time to time. That’s why we could all use a “Leave Me Alone Sweater” in our lives. When the world is just too much (#Peetus #GoldenShowerGate, anyone?) and humans are the last beings you wanna face, here’s the garment that will come to your rescue.
It’s created by “Pinterest engineer by day, maker by night” Ruth Grace Wong, and according to Bored Panda, she claims it’s “more of a statement than a functional piece of clothing,” but we have to disagree. We can totally see its brilliant function. Who cares if you can’t see out of it?! Sometimes, you really don’t need to see reality, TBH.
What makes it even better, is that the sweater is convertible. You can wear it three ways: cowl neck, off-the-shoulder and in “leave me alone” mode (i.e. zipped up right over your face).
If you’d like your very own “Leave Me Alone Sweater,” Ruth has kindly provided a step-by-step guide via Instructables on how to create one or, if you’re not the DIY type, she’s popped it on Betabrand with the hopes that, if she gets enough votes, she’ll be able to produce and sell it.
Frankly, this could totally be the hottest new fashion trend for peeps working in open-concept office spaces or parents of young children. Zipping up might be better than flat-out telling your co-worker (or kids) to get the heck away from you for five friggin’ seconds (not that we’d ever do that).

We all have a million dollar business idea (or 2...or 3…) that we think *someone* should do. Why not you? Part of the motivation for Brit + Co's new interactive business course Selfmade is to help women develop their business idea into an actual living/breathing/thriving business. But it's also a way to figure out what that idea is. Maybe you have a few ideas, or need to refine a really good one, or maybe you have something with potential but just need to brush up on the business side of things. Well you're in luck. Thanks to Office Depot, we're here to share a quick recap on how we're helping our students figure out how to pick an idea and run with it. Feeling a little Selfmade fomo? Check out these tips for knowing if your idea is fully baked.
