Frugalista Friday Scarf Edition

**I'm guest posting over at Shabby, Chic, and Cheap for Marissa while she is at Fashion Week.  I'm so jealous I can't be there!  Head on over and see what else I have to say about scarf season.**

More like Frugalista Friday Scarf Addiction Edition:
Hi.
My name is Lindsay.
And I'm addicted to scarves.

They are my favorite accessory and all summer long I miss wearing them because it is just too dang hot to put anything around my neck in this Carolina humidity.  Sometimes, I can't even handle a necklace sticking to me.

So, once the average high hits 80, all scarves come loose and you could just about see me in one every single day of the week.  I won't apologize.  I'm not ashamed.

I love accessories, particularly scarves, but dang can they be expensive!?  Seriously, I don't pay more than $20 for a shirt (and that's gonna be a pretty nice shirt)...what makes you think I would pay that much for a scarf?!  Call me cheap, call me what you will, but I can't/won't do it.

Rather than blow my shopping budget on pricey scarves, I've just gone ahead and purchased some fabric and made them myself.  It's so much cheaper!  And I can make sure I get whatever color or pattern I want.  Winning!

 I'm just going to go ahead and say it.  These pictures are taken after church, a meeting, a Costco run, and a Costco unload.  Excuse the wrinkled/disheveled appearance.  Do I say that a lot?  Sorry.
 When I saw this grey patterned knit at the fabric store, I couldn't stop touching it and carried it around for what felt like an hour before I finally saddled up to the checkout and had them cut me a yard.  I love it.  No regrets.

So let's go over the damage:
Shirt: Target $12.58
Scarf: Me, materials $4.90
Jeans: Goodwill (Joes) $5
Bangles: Forever 21 $3.80
Shoes: Gap Outlet $6.99

Outfit Total: $33.27

Making this infinity scarf would be a great project for a beginning sewer (is that a word?)  I will post a tutorial soon so you can get your craft on and join the addiction.  If you're determined not to sew, I charge $12 for infinity scarves and $15 for lace infinity scarves.  Hit me up!
