Pashmina fun

My sister-in-law gave me a pashmina for Christmas and it is the most fun toy I have had in a long time. I love it but I don't think I've got anything to actually wear it out with. I took it in the bathroom today and took pics. Let me know what you think I could get away with in public.

This is the regular old scarf look. I'd wear this. No problem. In fact I wore it to Wal Mart today to buy b.b. gun b.b.s.

Here's a shawl. I wish I had the guts to wear this but I already get enough crap from Mitch for wearing "granny" sweaters.

Bad hair day? Alopecia? No problem! This look can either be called "the Rhoda" or "the Steven Van Zandt"

The Turban. I wish wish wish that turbans were in. I love the feel of a turban! In fact I wish I could wear things on my head and not feel self-conscious, but I do, and I'd end up snapping at people who would inevitably be staring at me (probably admiringly and jealous) and say, "WHAT! NEVER SEEN A TURBAN BEFORE! RACIST!"

The Burka. I would like to have to option to wear a burka some days. Is that not PC? Well I would. No hair doing, no getting dressed, slip that baby on and your ready to go.
Muslim fashion = practical.

At this point, Kira knocked on the door and said she had to pee. So I let her in. She didn't have to pee, she had to poop. Thanks Kira! She saw what I was up to and wanted in on it. This is her as little brown riding hood.

This one is my favorite. This is the way I would wear it for going for Sunday drive in a convertible with Carey Grant. Oh Darling, it would ever so much fun!

The magician. Or The Bat. Cold arms? Cold neck? No more!

The shirt. Hot. I could be fully dressed with two pashminas. Hmmm....

Finally, the toga. I can see now that I could be fully dressed with one pashmina. Well, what can I pull off?


  1. I love scrolling down and discovering each new pic. Hilarious. I say go without the shirt underneath on the second to the last-the Kim Kardashian.

  2. turbans. when will they be acceptable for white scandinavian minnesotan women? i love it.


I would love your comments.
