This is this season's scarf of choice for me.
In the course of 1 minute today, 2 separate
strangers approached me to tell me how
beautiful my scarf was and wanting to know
where I got it...
There's the problem, I don't know.
I was just having this conversation with
my girlfriends recently. They loved the scarf
and wanted to know in what part of the world I
picked it up. I had to tell them, you know you
have a scarf addiction when you have a scarf this
beautiful and you have no idea where it came from.
I buy scarves like other people buy postcards.
I have never liked typical souvenirs, I always
buy things I will use all the time. Scarves. dishes
shoes and a great purse I bought years ago in
Madrid and I use it more than any other purse I
own and it still looks great.
I have shelves filled with scarves in all my closets,
they are stuffed into boxes and drawers...
On the hanger of every jacket or coat I own,
there are probably 4 to 5 scarves wrapped
about the top.
See that white silk floral in the photo above?
While staying in Istanbul our hotel room had a
little table that Mr. Wonderful & I wanted to sit
at in the evenings to look out at the view of the
Hagia Sophia. Unfortunately the table had a
faux wood formica top that I couldn't stand.
So, I went to the little shop on the corner and
bought this little silk scarf and it was our
tablecloth during our stay ~ now I wear it.
Scarves are the traveler's friend, they are
small and easy to carry and have so many uses.
I have dressed up black jeans and a plain black tee
with a scarf and dined at very elegant restaurants.
They have become tablecloths for a picnic, they
can become a blanket or pillow on planes or they
can make a plain hotel room look a bit more like home.
