Tom Baker would appreciate it if you would stop trying to steal his scarf and get your own.
NOTE: As longtime readers may tell you, every once in a while I like to do a little something different. Today is one of those days.
If you were to ask Rufus The Roommate what is one of the most frustrating things about me, chances are that after she had exhausted the topic of my being an overly-anxious clean freak, she'd probably start in on how much I resist being fashionable. And while I would argue the former as being a matter of difference between personal levels of tolerance for disorder, I have to admit that she's pretty much got me dead to rights on the latter. I'm not a fashionable person, and I never really have been.
And yet, I write three times a week about hats. Irony: It's what's for dinner.
My resistance to what's considered hot in the streets is brought into sharper relief when you compare me to Rufus, who is the Resident Fashion Plate. Granted, over the years she has been able to get me to branch out from my usual T-shirt/hoodie sweater/jeans rut with some success, but there are some things that just ain't gonna happen. (Two words: skinny jeans. Two more: @*$% NO.)
But even so, there are few things she's kinda-sorta brought me around to. One of those things would be that accessory that very rarely actually serves the purpose of keeping the neck warm: the fashion scarf.
That is, when they're done HH-style. ^_^
If I have to be in close proximity with a rattlesnake, I'd rather it be a cute little scarf like this one.
Since it's probably already apparent that I'm a big 'ol Nintendo fangirl, it should come as no surprise that I'd go bananas for a Yoshi scarf.
Of course, if you wanna kick it old-school Nintendo-style, there's a little something for you, too:
Ta-da! A piranha plant scarf, complete with pipe!
Considering his now-famous bit, I can't help but wonder if some fan gave comedian Jim Gaffigan this bacon scarf. It would only be appropriate.
For those of us out there who are looking for new and interesting ways to non-verbally communicate to strangers that we would like to be left alone kthanxbai, might I suggest this police tape scarf?
And finally, for the typeface afficionados out there:
A laser-cut typography-designed scarf, in what I think may be Helvetica.
...Hey, at least it's not Papyrus. Or Comic Sans.
See you Wednesday!
