Found Scarf = Costume Socks

80s themed holiday party for work! You know that means…thrifting!! My creative coworkers (also seen here) had the same idea. Scroll down to see their gnarly outfits.

I chose to portray my favorite 80s cartoon’s faceless caretaker: Nanny from the Muppet Babies. But where the heck was I going to find light blue and green striped socks? Well some divine intervention happened at a thrift store when I found this scarf.
