What’s With the Scarves?

I can’t understand the proliferation of these ugly long scarves. What’s the deal? If it’s freezing outside, fine, but with a t-shirt in Los Angeles? The scarf thing is now tantamount to the hat thing.

If you’re not Lindsay Lohan or a tracheotomy patient, you don’t need one of these awful scarves.

If you’ve had a tracheotomy, or plan to give Lindsay one, try this instead.

UPDATE   (5-28-08): Ooh, now I see there’s some shit going on over here about Rachel Ray wearing this kind of awful scarf and being compared to a terrorist.   As always, Sister Wolf has her finger on the pulse of the zeitgeist.

  1. Lindsey (not Lohan, the other Lindsey) Says:

    I have to admit that I am guilty of the long ugly scarf – but only in the early mornings on frosty days in Ontario – when it’s 6am and I am walking the pooch before work.

    But c’mon it’s only 3 degrees in the early am here and I needs the layers.

    Mea culpa. I love scarves. But I’m an old lady. Hands off the scarves Lindsay! They’re for us oldsters!

    They’re just a whole pile of unnecessary. Scarves should be what you wear when a jacket doesn’t cover every base. Otherwise they just cover up good clothes.

    Then you will return those black overalls you purchased as you are not a farmer.

    Has fashion ever been about necessity? Why should anyone feel guilty about wearing something they think is pretty, regardless of whether it is needed? Fuck purpose. Either start messaging the starlets on the way to the Oscars to tell them that jewelry and gowns are not necessary (jeans will do) or find something else to bitch about.

    gracie -“If you’re not Lindsay Lohan or a tracheotomy patient, you don’t need one of these awful scarves” is supposed to be funny, you know, or clever….never mind.

    I gave the overalls away. Happy?
