Thanks to Angie for declaring 2009 the year of the scarf and the lovely instructions and tips from these two ladies here and here, I am hip with the scarf thing. After a stop at the Walmart in Papillion, (this could be a whole seperate post- talk about a nice Walmart, not like the one that is closest to us) I picked up 4 colors of the famous $5 scarf. I got hot pink, black, rose pink, and white.
When I first got to the scarf section, I found some $5 ones, but they didn't look like the ones that were in the scarf video blogs I had watched. But, they were $5 and the only ones I saw so I thought that must be what they were talking about. After trying several on to decide what color I looked hottest in, I made a few selections. Then as we went to walk away, I saw the NICE ones. Oh, yeah, baby thats what I'm talking about. These are soft and yummy and I about died right there. I was so going to be cool now. Those first ones were all crinkly and scruncy (hence the tag said Crinkly scarf)
I'm in scaft heaven with these soft nice ones! I just wish I would have had more colors to choose from!
I was so excited about them I had to put one on in the car and wear it to our play date that afternoon. Now, no one told me I was hip, but I just declared myself that I was "in".
I texted this picture (taken at a red light) to Ashley because I knew SHE would understand my new cool status. Even though I have yet to see Ashley in a scarf. I'll let you know when she joins in. In this picture I am modeling the double knot.
This was after the playdate at the mall. I had "switched it up a little in the mall bathroom" and am now modeling the classic look. My favorite.
I also discovered while at the playdate that there was a stranger across the playland who obviously got the same memo I did.
and yes, since I know you are wondering, it is wierd to try to sneak pictures of strangers and have them not think you are a weird o taking pictures of them. But I just acted like I was taking a picture of the kiddos.
I don't know a name for this one right now on this look that I am modeling. I have to watch the video again to get the names. I was just SO proud of my new fashion status that I had to have B take a picture of me with one more look before I took it off.
