It was chilly this past weekend (yay!) and I actually had to layer some shirts and bundle up a little (double yay!). I even thought I’d try to wear a scarf. Not the utilitarian kind, though – something zany, and dare I say, ‘fashionable’?
Maggie over at Mighty Girl posts about stuff she wears on trips, which interests me, and she’s talked about circle scarves. See? Right there – ‘circle scarves’ is not something that enters my fashion-less vocabulary. However, the article intrigued me. The scarves you buy from stores are super-long and cost many dollars. I’m far too cheap to ever buy one, and far to insecure to wear one in public. I needed the experience of wearing one with minimal investment.
Initiate. prototype. sequence.
Old t-shirts with stains? Check.
Wearable in the house? Check. Bring on the cold!
Wearable outside the house? Um, not really. But I probably will. (Lack of fashion sense, y’know.)
Also, after this was all over and I was patting myself on the back for being so resourceful and inventive, I googled it. Turns out I am very late to the cutting-up-t-shirts game. I made three – this white one (very warm), a gray one (not warm at all – it’s from a t-shirt from college that was threadbare and ancient), and a green one (men’s t-shirt – that’s the winner).
(Hey, here’s T.M.I. – for the past couple of years, I can’t have anything touch the front of my neck. No turtlenecks, no scarves touching the front – not even a sheet when I sleep. It icks me out and gives me a gagging feeling.)
Good luck, vampires. Try and get me and I’ll barf on you.
