Affordable Scarves Review & $20 Gift Certificate Giveaway!

I know that late summer when it is like 100 degrees every day is kind of a weird time to start talking about scarves, but I totally had to show off what I got in the mail the other day:

You may know that I'm kind of obsessed with all things giraffe print, so this silky scarf makes me super happy! I love that it can be worn all kinds of ways:

(Yeah, I have no idea what that face I'm making is, either!)



Scarf on the head = ultimate bad hair day fix!

The scarf was sent to me by Affordable Scarves, which is pretty darn snazzy. You can shop the site by shape (skinny scarves vs. square scarves, for example), color, material, season or trend. 
A few other random things I loved about the site:

*Same-Day Shipping- If you order before 2pm on weekdays, your order ships out that same day!

*Free priority shipping on orders over $40! Shipping for orders less than $40 starts at $4.95.

*They're true to their name- Almost everything on the site is under $20, with a lot of items being less than $10!

*If you change your mind about your scarf after you get it, you can return it within 30 days for 100% money back!

*They have a blog where you can keep up with fashion trends, especially how celebs are wearing scarves, and find ideas for how to wear yours.

*You can pay by PayPal! I get paid via PayPal, so I usually have more money in that account than in my bank account, so I love when online shops have this option!!

*They sent me an e-mail to let me know that my order had shipped, and it included a handy "click here to track your package!" link. I know the link only saves a few seconds over having to copy/paste a tracking number, but it still made me happy! (I'm an obsessive package tracker!)

They also started a new side project at scarves.net that has some really cool resources for those interested in working scarves into your outfits, including dozens of ways to wear them!

And in an extra show of awesomeness, Affordable Scarves is going to give one of you guys a $20 gift certificate to spend on whatever your little heart desires! (Psst- all the cool kids are rocking giraffe print. Just sayin'.)

Here's how to enter: Visit Affordable Scarves and leave a comment below letting me know something you might get if you win! Please be specific with the name, not just "plaid scarf", for example, since there are so many! This giveaway is open to US residents only- sorry Canadian friends!

Definitely this one http://www.affordablescarves.com/products/stephen-striped-scarf.html

Following you on Twitter and of course your FB has been liked by me for a while ;)

As for the how to tie a scarf thing, I always thought the rosette neck wrap looked nice if it's worn with the right thing, otherwise it can look retro in a bad way.
