You see a tie…

I see a headband!

(you all should know, while taking this picture I had my camera turned towards me and got accosted by a salesperson because my phone was facing outward and she thought I was taking a picture of the general store.  something that apparently is not allowed, and upset her very much.  i hide the trauma well, I know)

You’re welcome ladies.

Now I have given you something to do with a whole new section of the thrift store that was, until now, as relevant as a landline telephone to you.

Put ’em in your hair.

And tie ’em in a bow.

And be pretty.

Just make sure it’s a somewhat girly pattern.

Or not.

Whatever floats that boat.

So it is somewhat noticeable that it is a tie…and not a scarf or actual headband dear me…

but trust me this is good, because then you can get people who will come up to you and say,

“Is that I tie?  That’s so cool!!  What a good idea!”

It’s already happened.  Once.

So I like compliments and attention.

Why do you think I started a blog??

Tips:

Pick one that is

a) not very stiff so that it ties easily and

b) is somewhat skinny so it is also more tie-able and it won’t awkwardly peek out to say hello from behind your head quite as much as wider one will.

We get the attention.  Not the tie.  It must reck’nize.  (too far?)

At the register, I had to choose just one of these lovely patterns as she sadly informed me only clothing was half off.  Apparently a tie is not clothing, its an accessory.  I couldn’t bring myself to pay the full $2.99 for both, when expecting to happily pay half that.  So of course after making sure she really thought a tie wasn’t clothing…I requested the her opinion and we settled on blue.  I love the brown one, but the blue does bring out my eyes.

But so does brown.

Ahhh, I had to make a decision or leave with neither.

I’m gonna leave you with some action/outfit shots of the burnt orange life in progress shorts I recently purchased and shared with you two posts ago:

Do ya like my color pop necklace?

Tank, Old Navy, Beaded Necklace, 2nd Chance Shop in Glastonbury, CT

I wore this outfit when my friend stopped over for some heated up Trader Joes homemade dinner the other night and I decided to throw something on other than gray cotton shorts and a tee, and be a proper host.

Also, I like to look good.

So go out and find your own tie headband and show me what you come up with!  We gotta find a use for all these old Father’s Day presents that none of them really needed.  Who really needs another tie??

Well, your head does:)

Peace and Happy thrifting,

Jaime
