This shirt has always had an Asian-esque feel to me, so I'm not sure why it's never occurred to me to wear the attached ribbons like this. Usually I tie it into an unphenomenal bow behind my back. Today, I took a hint from those inspiring obi-wearing bloggers and boom, new look.
Other things I might try using differently:
Using my stapler at work as a pant-hemmer.
My digital photo frame at work as a revolving to do list.
My dog as a leg warmer at night.
