BRASS KNUCKLES AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMSCARF, OR, MY CINDERELLA STORY

Good morning Knuckles!

Let's go back in time to 2003.  A swinging single Mr. Brass Knuckles and a couple of his homeboys take a trip to Ireland to visit his sister and reconnect with the homeland (i.e. drink beer and pick up girls).  During one of their roadtrips he finds himself at a store with local wares and sundries.  There he spots a bright, multicolored scarf hand-knitted with Irish wool and thinks, It'd be nice to have someone to buy this for.  And because he's an optimistic romantic, he buys it anyway for some special lady of the future.

A few months later and not long after we started dating, Mr. Brass Knuckles gave me this scarf along with the story.  I guess I was Cinderella, and this was my glass slipper!  I dutifully wore this scarf every winter until we moved and it got packed away in a random box that I didn't open again until this weekend.




(Sunnies, Gucci; scarf, a gift from Prince Charming; jacket, Ann Taylor; shirt, Target; pants, F21; wallet, Elliott Lucca; shoes, Asos)

And as they say, they lived happily ever after (if happily ever after means your rock bands go on hiatus you get your MBA have 2 kids move to the suburbs and work for the Man.  JUST JOKING!  Cinderella's got nothing on me, except for the talking to birds and mice thing)....

Have a great weekend, Knuckles!
