A scarf! For free!

Before we get to the real point of this post, I wanted to point out that I had my eye on the (now sold out) Beth Ditto oversize/batwing jersey dress from Evans for awhile. And then it was on clearance for 10 pounds! So here it is, on my body.

It's also a very good dress for bowling - it cuts a dramatic silhouette against the still-standing-10-pins since I'm terrible at bowling.

And now the point:

You may be asking "where did Rebecca get that effing awesome scarf?

Well, I'll tell you - I won it for free during a blog giveaway over at Mamushka Marie (who is just a doll, you really must check out her blog, I just love her style!). The scarf was made by Rachael and is from her etsy shop Softspoken. The scarf is vegan - aka, not wool - which thrilled me to no end since I am allergic to wool. Her shop is chock full of amazing knitted and crocheted goodies that are styled super well and, in my opinion as someone who has crocheted scarves as gifts, very reasonably priced.

Additional awesomeness:
Rachael also sent me a hat, even though it wasn't part of the giveaway, just because she is so nice and awesome!

Even better, the hat fit my really huge head, which no hats ever fit.

Thus, I am declaring 2011 "The Year Of The Hat" here at large people HQ.

I have a big head despite my mother's comments that I am a PIN head... a brother & sister who call me T-Rex & a mother who calls me a Pinhead, its a wonder I have any self esteem! That scarf is fabulous as is the hat! I also love that dress! I wanted it and missed it due to my blinking 6 month shopping ban...boo hiss!

Hi there, I've been following your blog for quite some time and totally love it! I love your style :)
I have been looking for some new glasses, and love the ones that are posted in the pictures on this post. I want ones that are brown that fade to clear on the bottom. Where did you get them, if I may ask?
