Last week, while walking the sweet baby, I felt it. The promise of fall. Which really pisses me off. Cause I know there are going to be some unbearable days before it's really here. There is always a week of teasers. Where you are unprepared. So, you dig out sweaters. And scarves. And those weird snoods. Excited for the possibilities. Then...it gets fucking hot and humid again.

I'm not a fan of summer. I was happy to be unemployed during it so that I didn't have to think about what to wear. Fall, I get and it gets me. So, I am dreaming of the things that I would buy-if I made a real salary. Today it is about the loop scarves. Or 'snoods.' Or whatever.

Who came up with this term, snood? I always thought it had something to do with a hood and a scarf but where does the fucking 'n' come from? Shouldn't it be a scood? For reals. How did this:

Turn to this:

Maybe it's a British thing. Asos is one of my favorite shopping sites. Although, I do not actually shop from it. I don't actually shop from anywhere. A girl can dream. Damn it.

I'm not a huge fan of supporting such big corporations. I really do get torn about it though, in the global sense of it all. I prefer to support local but we all live on planet earth. If boycotts are made of these places like Asos, H & M, Topshop and the like...what happens to the cultures that they support through the production of their goods? Then again, there are enough of us on the planet that do support these cheapie places so, I don't really need to be another one. Right?

It is so much more interesting to shop from an actual person. From the producer. The maker. Here are some pretty cool makers:

The one on the bottom is mine. What? I'm cool. I swear.
