How about a little fun? I am going to step away from my normally deep, brain teasing, epic posts and share something less daunting. Oh wait. I don’t write deep, brain teasing posts…although I have hit “epic” once in a while. Nonetheless, this one is all in the name of educational fun. It’s time to learn how to tie a “criss-cross bow“. Yes, we are back to scarves, peeps.
I wrote the other day about my new scarf toy, MaiTai’s Grande Mother-of-Pearl scarf ring. I was playing it safe and using for the criss-cross knot on my first few outings with it. Last week I decided to get a little crazy. I flirted with the “criss-cross bow”. I wasn’t sure that I could pull off the “look” of it because I don’t care for a lot of fluff on my person but I decidedly did like it and embraced the change.
Here is how it looks up close:
Here is how it looks with my outfit. I really don’t dig the whole taking pictures of myself to plaster on my blog (I like it when other people do it…but for me, it is a little out of my comfort zone)–I find it a rather silly business so I decided to have fun with it. I channeled my JCPenney Catalog posing skills (that were acquired in the late 70s/ early 80s and performed tirelessly with friends when we would goof off–we always wondered what the models were looking at in those catalogs, didn’t you?) to show it off at its best.
(this is the “suddenly I am surprised by nothing you can see” look)
(this is the “let’s look up at the studio ceiling and pretend I have just spotted the rare and elusive orange bellied parrot” look. It’s harder to do than it looks because you really need to know what an orange bellied parrot is to convincingly pull it off–not all JCPenney models know this.)
I know. It kind of puts a freshness on the self-portrait-in-your-bathroom-while-trying-to-hide-the-toilet photo session.
Would you wear the criss-cross bow?
