Try-it-out Tuesday: polka dots & pups

     Smiling at other side of messy room = blogger talent



     Relatives gave me this necklace years ago for Christmas, and I never wore it. The dog reminded me of Spuds MacKenzie, and it seemed a bit too little-girly for me. For some reason I never got around to tossing it in my donations bag. Then, I decided last week that I wanted to try out wearing a scarf and necklace, and none of my other necklaces seemed right. Until I put on this necklace on a whim and it looked perfect.
 polka dot scarf, $4.99 on Groopdealz
pup necklace, gift
Ann Taylor top, passed down from E.I.


Doggy bone cutouts & a bowtie? Too cute ...
    I was lured into getting this scarf on Groopdealz due to the low price and free shipping. I do like that it's lightweight and crinkly, but I don't like that it was advertised as cotton, but seems to be more like rayon. I'm not a textiles expert, but judging from the loose weave, this isn't cotton at all. And, being the klutz that I am, I've already put a little snag in it. :( There's a reason that I don't buy scarves that cost more than $5 or $10 ...
