The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Or, Why Does Your Hair Look Like the Business End of a Broom?
Somewhere in my published burbles, I may have mentioned I really wanted to thrift a square scarf. The reason? Mainly, ’cause I’m kind of fashion-challenged, and wanted to wrestle my fear of square scarves to the ground.
Follow me here, because I truly haven’t lost my train of thought, and all will become clear, well, sooner or later, but I have no problem looking fashion-challenged when I comment on other style blogger’s posts, either. For example, on a recent comment to a post by the insanely gorgeous Melanie at Bag and a Beret, I might have mentioned I would not recognize fashion designs by Pucci. (Although I dearly love the aria “Nessun Dorma” from Puccini’s Turandot, and have been known to play it over and over and over…).
Okay, I’m almost there! On the morning I was wearing Megan’s lovely gift for the first time, I peered more closely at the print while showing it off to my supervising attorney, and asked, “Are these letters? Oh, they are! Wait, what does Y. S. L. stand for?”
“Yves Saint Laurent, you fashion-challenged special person,” she replied.
Not really, but she should have.
Oh, and I do not know why my hair looked so broom-ish for, like, two days straight. Brushing only made it worse. Finally, I panicked, and washed it with a different conditioner. I’d tell y’all what kind of conditioner makes your hair look like a broom so you won’t buy any, only there’s about six different bottles in my shower, and I do not know which is the culprit.
Soooo, where are ya on square scarves? Love ’em or hate ’em? I know I am wearing. the. hell. outta. this. one.
