Friday Find: How Do We Feel About This?

It's been a while since I've browsed Etsy, unless you include my recent frenzied searching for party details as Mac's monkey-fest gets closer and closer.


I happened upon this cowl neckwarmer yesterday and am torn. Do I love it or am I just perplexed by it?

I love the cozy look of it, the autumn orange, the fact that it evokes fall in every way.

I love that it's part necklace, part scarf and part cowlneck sweater.

I'm not a fan of the flower, but I can't tell if it's attached or not.

Love the dramatic swoop, as if two dangling scarf end are flying behind you.

I love the handknit appearance; I can only imagine how this feels to the touch.

To be clear, I'm not in the market for any more orange neckwear - or purple, for that matter. Still, I can't make my mind up on this piece.

What do you think?

Ehhh...

Does that answer make sense? I like to try something like that one before I buy it. Oh, and it's orange :o)

Oh, I love it. So versitile. Yes, a little odd but I think the interest outweighs the odd.

With a white tee- ADORABLE! (OH! OR PURPLE!) But make sure that the little flower comes with it. I'm guessing it's safetly pinned on for versatility. It's cute though... but the big question... the price? How many times will you wear it to justify the cost? It's such a memorable piece that you may only get to wear it to one game a season. However, if it cools off and you are in 3/4 sleeves, whamo! Warm neck! :) I may have to get one too. :)

OH and here is another Etsy find that I've been admiring for months. I can't justify the cost because it'll get torn up in a heartbeat- there's no bottom to keep it from getting snagged in the concrete stands! But it's pretty to look at!

I think it's super cute! Only thing is that it's made of wool and acrylic and might be itchy/get little balls on it. As looks go, I'd wear it.
