But To Loiter By The Shore

This scallop neckwarmer by Janelle Haskin is rather like wearing a cozy straightjacket. Actually my father was teasing me about wearing it around the house, then he touched it and declared "wow, that's soft!" It was a quick conversion. I really like the way it looks with my military-inspired black coat; a quiet play of soft and hard elements.

  11. The skirty look of the military coat, though, still gives it a very feminine feel when you combine them together.

    It's a juxtaposition, but also a parallelism at the same time!

    I love it. It's very granny but with a modern, youthful twist. I'd wear it. And I don't do crochet/yarn. As always, you look charming.
