What I Wore: Scarf ( Yarn Works by Danyon), sweater (Forever Twenty-One), Shirt (Old), Mulberry Pants (Wet Seal), Boots and Octopus Necklace (Gifts), Pocket Watch Necklace (etsy)
You know that old cliche of girlfriends who wear their boyfriends things? Yeaaaaahhhh.... that'd be me right here. But it is not my fault- this scarf is too warm and pretty to resist!
Yarn Works by Danyon is the newly opened Etsy store of my sister, Danyon (pronounced DAN-yun). She made this for The Boy as his Christmas gift, and he does indeed look very manly yet well put-together with this scarf folded into his peacoat....but it also looks good on me, I think, and its nice and warm. So when I'd borrowed it for warmth on a trip and forgot to take it off after saying good-bye....you know how these things go. Actually, I'm incredible impressed with these scarves and that's not just because she's my sister. The girl works fast when knitting and yet the stitches are all so even and uniform. Um, I would make a mess knitting. Plus, in addition to scarves, she also does headbands and coffee warmers among other things in lots of different stitch patterns and colors. Go on and check her out- you know you want to.
Just so other Christmas-gift givers don't feel left out- the Octopus necklace was an amazing gift from my friend, Sarah. Is it jus me, or does it have a steampunk vibe to it (What? It is just me? Well, so be it!) And the boots were a gift from my mother, while the brown sweater was one from my father that he picked out himself. Apparently, I've got a very stylish family.
