Love It or Loathe It?

The Raccoon Earmuff
(Is this Thandie Newton? Has she gotten to the raccoon earmuff modeling portion of her career yet?)

Love it or loathe it? We don't quite know. But it's starting to get chilly out and in honor of the Fall we bring you raccoon earmuffs.

On the one hand, they are like wearing opossums on the side of your head. What happens when these get rained or snowed on? We bet they don't look so Jellicle all matted down & drippy. Also, how do you wear any kind of muff let alone this gargantuan, furbee-esque one & still talk on your cell phone or listen to music?

On the other hand, they do look warm & cozy. Perhaps these are the perfect accent to a simple Winter's outfit. Perhaps they show a sense of daring or whimsy. Perhaps they make a large head look smaller. (Can you tell yet that Mel is writing this?)

Mel & El tend to think of their zany faces as their permanent accessories & so try to keep the rest of their look toned down. But, who knows? Maybe a zany face benefits from a furry friend to its left & right.

Will you be wearing these when the weather gets frightful? If you do wear them, will you feel the need to name them & feed them?

Please advise.

I will wear them. I will love them, and hug them, and feed them, and call them George.
