How do you like your eggs? Sunny side up? Over easy? Or wrapped around your neck, as a scarf, perhaps?

Eggscarf It’s no secret that we love us some eggs here at The Fashion Police. After a hard night patrolling the web for fashion crimes, there’s nothing better than a big ol’ pile of eggs, sunny side up and with the yolks just a little bit runny. And some toast soldiers. (Are we the only ones that calls them “toast soldiers”, by the way?) Yum.

Now, where were we? Oh yeah: this, unfortunately, isn’t a big plate of eggs. No, this is a scarf. That just so happens to look like eggs. It’s actually making us feel a little hungry, if we’re honest.

Is it making you want to buy it, though? Well, if it is, the bad news is that you’re going to have to knit it yourself, because this is just a pattern, not an actual scarf. The good news is that the pattern is only $5.99 and you can buy it from Boutique Kai.

Will you, though, or do you think food should be food and fashion should be fashion, and never the twain should meet? Tell is in the comments, while we go rustle up some eggs…

    I think its quite cute but definitely not something I would wear. I have a really long white scarf with a cupcake on it and it says I love cupcakes. And I have made bracelets out of haribo sweets dipped in varnish. But eggs? Thats a bit random.

    I kind of like it. I love eggs (my favorite food actually – so versatile!) and I guess if I had a winter coat that this would go with I might actually wear it, but I don’t. And I can’t justify the expense of another winter coat just so I can wear a scarf that I would only ever get half way through knitting anyway…

    I suppose the logic is it’s not the different from wearing a scarf made up of flower shapes and it is quite cute. I wouldn’t buy one personally – partly because I already own waaay to many scarves and am not allowed anymore – but I think I know someone who’d love this.

    Cute, and the bright yellow is lovely, but I don’t really think anyone should wear it, except maybe children.

    Sorry to say, definitely not an egg fan, and so I wouldn’t be sporting them around my neck.

    Ooh. I do like it. I wouldn’t knit it, though. And I call everything in strips ‘soldiers’!

    1. It’s crochet
    2. It’s firmly tongue-in-cheek. And while not my personal tastes, I can totally imagine someone rocking this.
    3. Yes, eggs are delightful.

    Eggs are for eatin’, not wearin’. Does the phrase “egg on your face” mean nothing?
    And now I want egg drop soup. Bah!

    *vomiting*
    there is a reason why it’s considered kinky to cover yourself in food – it IS a perversion

    Being that I am horribly, horribly allergic to eggs, I will never, ever wear this scarf.
    😛
    Pretty sure there’d be nothing more miserable than walking around all day wearing a harsh reminder of what I shouldn’t eat under pain of death.
    Crochet scarves can be cute. I know someone who crochets hats to sell online, some of them are utterly adorable.

    i have to go against the common opinion here and admit that I love it and would totally wear it.

    They were probably going for daisies and failed miserably.

    By the way, you CAN buy food scarves. They’re designed by this asian girl called Twinkie Chan. Here’s the write up I found on Scene 360:

    I think she looks scary. The cupcake ones look cute, but I wouldn’t wear em.

    I think it’s cute for kids, but wierd for anyone else!
    Does anything else think they look more like daisies than eggs? I think i’d like it more if it were flowers. But then if they were flowers people would probably say they looked a little bit like eggs. lol!
