I have been wanting a large cream colored scarf for awhile to keep me warm. I wish I could afford getting one custom made by the grannies at Golden Hook.
You can customize your scarf with the length, width, stitch, and color you want and a certified granny makes it for you.
I can never justify paying a lot for a knitted scarf though, or really paying anything for that matter. Why? Well, when I was in elementary school my British grandmother taught me how to knit. I only know one stitch but I used to make scarves for people all the time. I never made any for myself, though. I especially think my British grandmother would frown upon paying $200 for a Golden Hook scarf.
Maybe I will teach myself to purl as well and then finally I can have my chunky cream scarf. If I start now, I can definitely finish one by the time the cold weather comes around. Or maybe I can just ask my grandmother to make me one.
Would you shell out that much for a custom scarf? Have you ever tried to knit?
But just because I love J. Crew, here are a few pieces that I like (I have cropped most of the pictures so you don't have to see the outfit in its entirety - I wouldn't want to be responsible for hurting your eyes):
I like this striped shirt - but then again I would wear a plastic bag if it had stripes.
I love a good, sparkly skirt (or dress, for that matter). I always say one time I will buy one, but I still don't own one since I never have an excuse to wear it. Maybe a sparkly skirt doesn't need an excuse?
I am oddly drawn to this furry looking vest. I wonder if I could pull it off? Liking the bag too.
This jacket reminds me of a teddy bear. But not like Pooh Bear. Like that cool-teddy-bear-down-the-street-that-you-wish-you-were-friends-with-so-you-could-borrow-her-clothes teddy bear.
I like this crinkly dress. I am not sure if I could pull this color off when I am pale in the fall but I am kind of hoping to see if they have it any other colors. Intrigued.
This was pretty much the leather jacket I was searching for when I was searching for a leather jacket. I bought a darker brown one that I love, but half of me was kind of thinking I should have held out a little longer.
At least they had the sense to add hot pink lipstick to this. Otherwise, it would have been completely drab.
Well, that is it folks. I hope they change my mind with their fall catalogue. I seriously spent many minutes (ok, hours) looking at this lookbook saying "why, WHY!?" in my head before being able to write this. If you would like to look at the lookbook, you can find it here.
