ARE PONCHOS ONLY FOR ASSHOLES?

I hope not, because, you guys, I did it. I bought one. This one, from Piper Lime, to be specific:

Front


Back
Only mine isn't grey, it's olive green (possibly my favorite color). Today I arrived home from a business trip and the poncho had arrived. Here it is:


I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "How could you put any item of clothing, let alone a new one, on that fucking disgusting rug that's in your living room." And you're right. I have no excuse; the rug is gross. But there's nowhere else that I could lay it flat and I wanted to show you the color (which actually didn't really even come out that well anyway)! So sue me! And if that's not what you're thinking, it should be.

Or you may be thinking, "Wait a minute, I thought you were all broke and shit. Why are you buying anything, let alone a poncho?" This is true. I am broke and shit. But the poncho only cost $27, and shipping was free. So shut up.

Back to the original question, because I plan to wear this tomorrow, and while I am not opposed to looking like an asshole, I sort of like to know ahead of time that that's what's going on. You know? Just so I'm aware.

But I'm really not sure about this. Fifty percent of me thinks ponchos are great, and totally IN, and that I am actually very chic and ON TREND for owning/wearing one. The other 50% thinks ponchos are for assholes. Is it a sweater? Is it a cape? WTF is it? I don't like things I can't define, and I think ponchos fall into some sort of grey area.

I guess I'll find out tomorrow, when I wear it to work. I hope so, at least.

Ponchos are most definitely not @ssholic. They are totally cool. I know this because my 10-year-old daughter wears one EVERY day ;-)

I'm so on the fence with the poncho.
(no help at all here -- sorry!)

UPDATE: I wore the poncho to work and am still on the fence, although I THINK I love it. And Desiree, if Bella wears one, then that's confirmation enough for that they are totes cool.
