Old sweater, new tricks

Before I get into pictures, I just want to say thank you so much to the outpour of support I received yesterday.  Your comments and words touched my heart, I even cried.  Thank you, I really appreciate every single person who reads this, really. 


I hate this sweater.  This sweater is one of the reasons I decided to stop shopping because the fact that I bought this sweater is proof that I have a problem.  As you will see in the next photo, it is ugly.  The stripes, the shape is funny, the color is nice, but its overall a pretty ugly sweater.

That is why I decided to make a bow with my American Apparel scarf that I wear all the time.  I tried it and looked in the mirror... it looked kinda cool.  Way better than the ugly funky striped sweater.  So this just goes to show you, when you are not shopping for a year, the ugly sweater you bought when you were shopping, can still be salvaged into something semi-okay.

Ugly sweater: Target, purchased because I was going to a hockey game and didn't have a long sleeve to wear.
Scarf: Americal Apparel
Jeans: Express
Boots: Anthropologie


  1. It DOES look way better with the bow - nice job!

  2. The bow is cute and creative. Love it.

  3. Tying a scarf into a bow is a really simple but GREAT idea!!! Ive seen it a bit more often these days... good good idea. :)
