Wow, memory lane sucked me in. Back to the original intent of this post, looky what I bought!
Steve Madden fur ruched neck gaiter. I don't even know what a neck gaiter is. Wikipedia: a neck gaiter is an article of clothing worn about the neck for warmth. It is a closed tube of fabric, often thick fleece or synthetic, which is slipped on and off over the head. My boyfriend says it looks like I skinned cookie monster.
While I see his where he is coming from, I still love it. In my defense, the average temperature for the last week has been around 20 degrees and it is very useful for keeping your neck and lower-half-of-face warm. I don't have a beard to serve this purpose like some snobby boys I know. Also, there were three markdown stickers on it at TJ Maxx. THREE. It was originally $55. Had it not been not so dirty-cheap, there is no way I would have bought it. This only strengthens my theory that I was meant to have this fuzzy blue scarf. After demonstrating how adorable and ah...versatile...the gaiter is, Chris has come around to it. Now it is more affectionately called my thneed.
