Confession: I like to take the occassional fashion risk. I try again and again to play it safe and "classic" but then my imagination gets the better of me and I always go for the bright tights, outrageous scarf or questionable boots. So it was no surprise when I walked into San Diego Surf Co. and fell in love with this:
THAT, my dear friends, is a Billabong shawl.
The minute I slipped this bad boy on, I knew it was forever. Well, actually, my first thought was... "Does this look like a shorty-bathrobe?" My second thought was... "I don't care! It is glorious!"
Now let me disect this beauty for you. 1) Your eyes are not decieving you- it has fringe. Am I a cowboy? Maybe. 2) When worn and you put your arms up it gives the illusion that you have wings. Score. 3) Yes, that is a paisely print. What goes better with fringe than paisley? Nothing, that's what.
I am excited to wear this shawl. I will ignore the glances of the people who think I am crazy and will high-five the ones who compliment me. Because let's get serious, it is worth a compliment.
Thanks San Diego Surf Co.!
