I have been seeing t shirt scarves all over Pinterest and every where else! There are so many different varieties so I decided to give it a whirl myself.
All I needed was a cheap, stretchy t shirt and a pair of scissors. I got a cheap, stretchy turtle neck on clearance at Walmart (get the biggest one you can, more material).
First thing, cut off the bottom seam. Then you cut of a measure off between the arm pit and the bottom just however wide you want your scarf. I like a thicker scarf and so I am getting at least 2 out of this 3x shirt. Then stretch! I handed one side to my 9 year old and we pulled and pulled;). The edges will curve in and basically cover the rough edge, the more you wear it the less you will see it.
That is it…. A scarf… It is a great way to get a custom scarf to match something in your wardrobe or just to use up those extras shirts hanging around! It is a nice, cheap, no-sew gift!!!!
It is so easy that I feel a little silly writing about it;).
Ok, for all the years I have used shopping portals there has been one store that has never been listed… Amazon.
Well, it seems times are changing!!! Amazon is now on Ebates!!! At least in a few departments. Right now you can get 3% back in Clothing, Groceries and Shoes! I don’t how long this will be going on so don’t put off your shopping. And make sure you go through Ebates.
I have some gluten free shopping to do so I will see you all later!!!

Ok, NerdDad thought this dress would be cute and I got some approval on Twitter… But I am not sure. I just got it today. So what do you all think? Cute enough as a day dress for the Type A Conference? Of course I might brush my hair and switch the socks for some sandals;).
Ok, it isn’t a secret that I love me some Think Geek! I also desperately want some geeky shirts so I was stoked to see ThinkGeek Shirt Sale for this weekend!!! I think the first one I am going to get is the Batgirl babydoll shirt, no the Doctor Who, no Hello Shroddy… Ugh! Well, you shouldn’t wait because it is only the 17th and 18th!
Ok, I don’t actually dress trendy but I do tend to know about them;). Part of the reason I don’t dress in the trends is because I am a big giant chicken. I am always self conscious;). But I am trying to be more open about trying new things in fashion!
So looking at the upcoming trends I think some with be a hit and some will be a miss for me. One of the hits for me are the statement sunglasses. I just got a couple of pairs last week so we will see how they are received;). I love the pastels and the whole lady like look. I think they are super cute. I love that whole pulled together lady like look.
I am totally on the fence about neon! I don’t think I can handle that much color. I do have bright jewel colored shirts and sweaters in blues, pinks and purples. That may be all I can handle;). I am also on the fence about the whole tangerine thing. I am really pinky and I am little afraid of that orange. I like peach and melon though!
Then there are some misses for me. I love the peplum idea. I mean I flip for a great pencil skirt and the whole retro look but being so plus size. I understand that it should hide a little bulge but I think I have passed the point of it being helpful;). I can also say the drop waist thing appears to be a fail. I got a cute purple dress that was a drop waist and it is now waiting to be returned. Party fail!
So how about you? What spring trends are you embracing or running from? Leave a comment here and then pop over to BlogHer and let them know too! And Make sure you enter the sweepstakes too!
So you should all be proud of me! I finally broke down and got a nice (read expensive) pair of flats for Blissdom. I found these great Born flats at Norstrom Rack for $50. Everyone warned me that there was a ton of walking so I came prepared. But I didn’t break in my shoes before I came and I think that was a mistake!!!
Within just a couple of hours I had a bunch of blisters. I now have 4 bandaids on and decided to wear my funky socks with my flats even though everyone could see them. The big problem? I only brought 1 pair of socks;). So I am off to wash them out and hope they dry by the morning;).
Learn from my mistakes and bring more than 4 bandaids, more than one pair of socks (just in case) and break in your shoes before you go to a conference!!! Other than that, I am having a fun time at Blissdom! I hope to learn a bunch tomorrow;).
Ok, I have a couple of outfits that I like but I don’t know if they are good for my blogging conference next week (Blissdom). And while I love my husband, he is no help in these areas;). So I am coming to you, the blogosphere to help! What do you think of these?
This is an outfit that I wore on TV back on February 3rd. It is a simple black, knit dress with a faux belt. I love these slouchy black boots because they are flat!!! And of course I am wearing my standard denim jacket (best find ever). I am not sure about the denim on the black but the sleeves are just cap sleeves so I need something over it! Oh, I picked up that dress for just $14 from Ross!
And this is what I wore yesterday. The belt is my new acquisition. I picked it up over at Lane Bryant and I think it helps camouflage the belly. But I am just not sure about the over all look. And I will not be taking those 3 inch wedges to Blissdom;). But I am super comfy in that roomie purple shirt and the skinny jeans are slimming, right? (Am I just fooling myself?)
Let me know what you think and someday I may be able to dress myself;). Maybe.
