• Old Bakelite belt buckle -- one of my favorite ways to hold shawl tails together.

365.80 -- Everything slightly askew

Newer Older

So. I have always worn this shawl "traditionally," with the point of the triangle pointing right to my butt. Today, I decided to wear it differently, slightly askew, a bit off center. I wasn't so sure about the idea, so I threw another scarf into my bag on the way out the door.

Question is: Does it look crooked in a way that makes you want to reach out and straighten it, or want to tell me to straighten it?

(Obviously, centering has been a big challenge today.)

    I think that's a cute way to wear the shawl.

    Re: Hair: I wish I didn't find it so impossible to actually get a *trim* at the salon. It seems like every time any stylist gets near me with the scissors, I lose an inch. And it takes a Loooooong time to get that inch back.

    I like askew. It also gives the shawl pin a sort of brooch look.

    i personally prefer it being askew. you could even go a little further off with it. it's fun to wear things with your own twist.

    i bet one of those hip girls of yours can tell you if it looks good or not.
