The red white & blue flag is flying everywhere today. So why not as a knitted scarf around your neck.
Or maybe you like your election fashion to be a little more deconstructed. Votary takes a little poetic license with the red white & blue flag, making knitted scarves with the traditional flag motif in decidedly nontraditional colors — to mix it up and give it a little 21st century edge.
This American flag scarf will suit the red, the blue, and some shades of grey, or any mood you happen to be in after the election. (They make blankets too in case you want to throw one over your head.) Votary is an entrepreneurial business, an idea that has been bandied about quite a bit this election year, so your patriotic fashion fervor would help kick off this start-up.
Said vs. Threads
All during the ramp-up to the election, FashioningChange.com – a values-driven start-up that offers equivalent alternatives to your favorite styles that are economical and eco-friendly — has been comparing the candidates' clothes with how they stand up to their rhetoric. You might want to check out their Said vs. Threads page before heading to the polls.
A store in Los Angeles — SARAR Sunset Plaza — pits the body over the body politic.
Their "Style over Substance" store window campaign asks passersby to honk once for Romney and twice for Obama. Check out their election results (and sign up to win prizes from the store) on their Sarar Sunset Plaza Facebook page.
Whether you're ready or not — and who isn't ready after this very long election year — you can swathe yourself in patriotism of whatever stripe, or star.
