One of my favorite shops to find accessories, as of late, has been the Culture Shop in the South Side. When I was a Baldy McBalderson, I mainly wore two knit hats that I bought from there: a white & black one, and a multi-colored one. I loved these hats because they were so over-sized and hid the fact that I was bald amazingly well. I just looked like a little hippy girl in these hats. When I looked int the mirror while wearing these hats, I didn't look like a sickie.
|Can't tell I'm bald here, right? RIGHT?|
A couple of months ago, I found my new favorite accessory from the Culture Shop: a soft, purple scarf with black skull and crossbones on it. I love how the scarf is a mixture of feminine and bad-ass. If I wear it with a solid colored sweater or t-shirt, it just immediately makes it so much more interesting. I also like things that cover my neck scar, too. Eventually, I"ll get over feeling self-conscious about my neck but eh, I'm not there yet.
I went to the Culture Shop today to see if I could find a scarf for my friend Nikki but unfortunately those scarves were no longer there. Curses! I did finda pair of earrings that I fell in love with (below). Apparently, I'm developing a thing for skull and crossbones. As long as this thing doesn't evolve into leather and studs, I think my recent fascination with them is okay.
