Could You Pull it Off?

I'm diggin' these organic neckpieces by KA/POW/WOW. Each neckpieces is inspired by jacobian ruffs and meticulously hand crafted from reclaimed textiles. I have a thing about too much stuff around my neck...although I would love to try one on or have a super cool friend wear them. I still think it's a fun idea, especially to add a little glam to your fall wardrobe.

Here's to a weekend of cleaning and organizing...ok, and relaxing too. Please tell me your great weekend plans so I can think of them while inside a storage unit unearthing who knows what. Part dread...part excitement...probably more dread. To a productive weekend...did I just use productive and weekend in the same sentence?!

I have a thing about not having *enough* stuff around my neck... I could definitely wear these!

I'll wear one if you wear one... we could wear them together out on the town.
I think these are super cool.

The hair & that dress really fits to my daughter. And she love this too.

Well, nothing much to do tomorrow or the w/end. Guess,power walk in the morning and lunch in town w/ my cousins & well see what or where we will be ended. I need a massage so, hopefully I get a time.

ENjoy though your bz on your organizing. Sometimes, we need it.

Hugs from chilly & rainy Stockholm

I had to do the storage thing a few months ago--not fun, but it feels soooooo good when it's all done.

Best of luck...have a wonderful weekend.

COULD i PULL IT OFF?
perhaps if I wear a whig, fake breasts (I said breasts cuz I did'nt want to say boobs, some girls take the word offensive)and what else? of yeah if I get sex change, then I Might be able to pull it off.

Savvy Mode SG said...

individually okay but not together maybe except for 2nd look....

Jude said...

They are lovely, but I do see a question mark when I wonder if I could wear one and do it justice!

Productive weekends can be a good thing, and I hope yours is no exception. Hope you have some fun along the way.

Chris said...

Uh, no...they are extremely cool but I'm like you, too much around the next bothers me. Plus I look like a dork in stuff like this, but other people can rock them just fine.

I wish I was having a productive weekend. I'm being forced to do a whole day of OT tomorrow, which was ordered at the last minute, plus I have a family function on Sunday. I was going to go shopping and clean my house, but oh well.

Who knows, you might find some good stuff in that storage unit! :)

...love Maegan said...

omg...I've been working on neckpieces similar...but not the same and have just been too lazy to list them....I better do it before it looks like I'm stealing!!!!

...i love them :)

Sandra Ree said...

My daughter definitely could! Me, not so much. :)

My weekend consists of "catching up" on everything. It's funny, when you're gone from the house for any length of time you'd think there wouldn't be that much to do when you get back...

Courtney said...

While I am not sure if I could pull it off, I love the top grey neckpiece! Such beautiful details!

Breakaway said...

Now you take it easy , will be fun to uncover some stuff in your store.Have a nice weekend.

sarahelizabeth said...

Yes weekends are supposed to be relaxing but I always end up more busy--don't worry I will be cleaning and organizing along with you :)

The Lil Bee said...

Ha! I love the "could you pul lit off?" and the imagery of the girl tugging at her neck. Very clever. Digging that top one especially:)

AusAnna said...

oh wow! i love things around my neck. i love these. love it. :)

hello gorgeous said...

I am always cold so starting about now I almost always have something around my neck. These are beautiful. (Maybe not the gold lame so much for me...maybe 15 years ago.)

Now, the thing on her head? No. I could absolutely not pull that off. But kudos to those who can.

M.Kate said...

wonderful designs though i have never seen them here before,how refreshing. My great weekend plan will have to try to sit a bit more on the butt? haha...but seriously no kidding, that's the great plan. Have fun and dont be good :D

LENORENEVERMORE said...

I luv the first grey one...dressup or down... whateverwhenever...fab!!! I'm dangerous like that! ;)

K. Sundari said...

They look cool. I dont wear much around my neck but if the occasion arises I think I would be brave enough to pull these beauties off! Makes me want to draw them.

Fifi Flowers said...

I would love to lounge around this weekend... but I'm afraid that will not happen... first my son is sick again ugh... and second I'm having parents and kids from my son's football team over for the team pizza party on Wednesday... soooo... you will not be alone... I will be organizing and cleaning... ugh!
ENJOY any FUN moment you find!

please sir said...

You guys are so funny! Glad to hear about your weekends - thanks for sharing!

Hey Harriet said...

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. In between all that cleaning & organising!

limonana said...

design for mankind. said...

Oh I looooove these!

A Day That Is Dessert said...

Love the last one!

Good for you for planning a productive weekend...how's it going?

We have a ridiculously busy weekend ahead - hockey, soccer, a dance performance, etc etc.

Two Tall Girls said...

They're great. I don't usually like scaves because I just don't know what to do with the ends but last year I made one that just goes around, like these, no ends to deal with and I LOVE it. These are fun and beautiful too.

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

Can "productive" and "weekend" work together? ;-)

And...I love these but can't pull it off. Not cool enough anymore. Not sure I ever was, lol!

Songy said...

Susie Bubble could pull that off nicely I'd say. :)

Whitney {from Darling Dexter} said...

I would sure try :) I too am trying to have a productive weekend: reupholster a stool, put together my new ikea couch, and reorganize my life! Geez, that sounded crazy! We'll see if it all happens...

Paul Pincus said...

i love these. the first two are gorgeous. the first one is incredible!!!

happy weekend : )

Rachel said...

I would totally wear one of the neckpieces! I love stuff that that! : )

saray said...

i would wear those neckpieces!

Alyssa said...

They would be super fun to sport, but I think I'd be pulling at them all the time...like the girl in the last photo! ha!

katiecrackernuts said...

I can wear pieces like that, but can't wear simple strand necklaces. All my best pieces, so I think, are big chunky numbers and I so reckon I look better in swathes of wrap. My favourite is a scarf that's almost as long as I am tall.

::{J}:: said...

WOW! Stop this, you're making me seriously want these! That top scarf...I could pull it off for sure!!!

jess gonacha said...

oh my goodness, i LOVE that headpiece in the bottom photo! and her lipstick color, too! i wish i were her. :)

fly tie said...

i'm a fan of stuff around my neck..scarves, random pieces of fabric, etc. but this might be a bit much for me. although i like how it looks on the model.

Jules said...

love the look of these - don't know if i could pull it off...i really need to start thinking outside the box with my wardrobe!
