Another order that I am SUPER PUMPED about getting is from Fyrinnae. I ordered four eye shadows and the legendary Pixie Epoxy, which I've got high hopes for.
Anywho. Tonight I want to shine the spotlight on something I dearly love: scarves. Being the most often- overlooked heroes of cold weather wear, they are also the ones I love most. Days like today make me happy for scarves. The sun was out in blinding force today, but the wind made it feel like there was a blizzard going on. And you know where the first place is that the wind goes? Over the collar of your coat and down your shirt. But, ahah! If you're wearing a scarf that enteryway is blocked and still as cozy as ever.
Now, of course, I'm not so extremely practical as to only love scarves for their warmth. I also love the look of a scarf. A scarf that ties in well with an outfit makes me think that someone is well- put together. It can be a perfect pop of color in an otherwise neutral ensemble or a neutral to help tone done and otherwise loud getup. And there are so many different choices! Long, short, knit, silk, patterned, solid... I love choices :) You don't even want to get me started on all of the different ways you can wear them: tied, and wrapped, and draped... ok... I'll stop now :D
And as if being the perfect accessory isn't enough, a scarf is the perfect thing to help balance your top half if you have a larger bottom half (such as I do.) Cue Sir Mix- Alot.
My latest two acquisitions have been from Belk. Both of them are floral prints, but one is silk and one is very nice polyester. They were 25%- 50% off, and I could not resist (I think I'm seeing a pattern, lol.) Here is a pic of one of them, modeled by my very lovely kitty:
I love this one because Maria looks like a sweet little innocent babushka that has lost her way while going into town to buy bread...
The scarf shows up better in this one, which just-so-happens-to-be the one with the "get this thing off of my head" look.
That's all I have to say today... oh, besides this one little ole last thing: What exactly is a babushka, anyways?
