The Science of the Matter

January 20, 2016

Sometimes you have to get creative.

You can just assume I’m frozen. Truly chilled to the bone and I feel the frost-burning All. The. Time. While I’m in love with the warmth of oversized sweaters, somedays I feel like I’m swimming in them. Since I’m a lover of puzzles and visual problem solving games… Unblock Me and Tangrams are the only game-apps I like… it only makes sense I do these things. As I’ve stated many times, I view my closet like a game. A puzzle of sorts. What can fit with what without scaring off too many people?!

I thought this was a easy addition to my craziness creativeness.

Problem: Oversized sweater hanging down to an unflattering length.

Observation: Hummm these earrings in my closet have a pin-like look.

Hypothesis: It’ll probably do the job and won’t be too weird. Plus it’s free to me and available right now. Major pluses!

Experiment: It took a few tries to get the right gather at the right height.

Conclusion: Yay! Fishhook earrings work to pin-up an oversized sweater. Adding dimension to my outfit, giving me a waist and showing off the striped undershirt.

Nothin like showing my jr.high girls that YES, in fact, Science is important! It even helps you get dressed. Boom.

  1. Absolutely love this idea! I love the over sized tops these days but sometimes you just want your figure to be complimented a little more. Great idea…pinned.
