Love Actually is All Around… and Apparently So Are Turtlenecks

I can hold my own in most sports, I enjoy beer, and I would choose to wear comfortable shoes over pretty heels any day – but I will put my stereotypical girliness on full display at Christmas time with my love of Love Actually. Holiday joy + cheesy romance = girly cult favorite. I can’t wait until ABC Family channel plays it 45 times between now and New Years. I also can’t believe it came out TEN years ago… that cute, wise kid must be a lady-killer by now!

Because BuzzFeed will never get old and will always make me laugh out loud, I bring you this gem that points out something that I didn’t realize in my hundreds of viewings…. That love actually is all around, and so are turtlenecks. I don’t remember if these awkward, swallow-your-neck up shirts were super stylish in the early 2000s, but apparently the movie’s wardrobe team got a discount on bulk turtlenecks and mandated one in every scene.

Check out the whole article – here are a few of my faves with even better captions.
