The devastatingly interesting story of the copycat scarf

Once upon a time, a 19-year-old college sophomore bought a really cute scarf at H&M. She was excited about wearing it because she was just starting to dress with style, and she fancied her new purchase a cornerstone of her future wardrobe. Misfortune struck, however, when, upon returning to class she realized that a friend of hers had the same exact scarf. This would not have been such a problem if this friend hadn't worn this scarf every day, and if the protagonist didn't have class with her 5 days a week. Much to our heroine's chagrin, the scarf became her friend's signature piece, and she was forced to banish it to the back of her closet until her friend grew tired of it.
Years passed. The scarf remained hidden for so long, she had forgotten about its very existence. Then, one day, when she was home for winter break, her eye was caught by a sliver of grey fabric poking out through two blazers. Intrigued, she gingerly pushed the blazers aside and was greeted by a beautiful sight: the long-forgotten Copycat Scarf. She reached out and freed the scarf from its prison, and wrapped it around her neck one, two, three times. Such versatility! she thought to herself. Several days later she got on a plane back to Boston, the scarf still resting upon her shoulders; and the two lived happily ever after.

The scarf is really pretty. Sad it had to sit unworn for so long. I would never have let someone else wearing my thing stop me from wearing it. Especally someone boring enough to wear the same scarf everyday.

When I was in school I saw a girl wearing an awesome wing necklace. She wore it everyday too. I asked her where it was from - Urban Outfitters. I went there right after class, got the necklace and wore it, even when we had class together.
