It used to be said about me that if I was looking for something chances were great that it would be either before or after its heyday and that I wouldn't be able to find it, at least not new. This may be the case with what I am currently looking for: silk or faux silk square scarves. I have discovered that some clothes that I wasn't liking wearing -- like turtlenecks -- I like wearing a lot more if I tie a square scarf around my neck. I have about five square scarves. Enough, I suppose. But as most of them are very similar in pattern and colour (mostly grey, camel and black), I would like to expand my square scarf wardrobe. Of course, I could find some new silk scarves at Hermes, but those would be a little (cough, cough) beyond my means. I am getting lots of tips for where I might find some vintage silk scarves (in bricks and mortar shops). I am looking forward to the hunt!
I am wearing a wool turtleneck from The Embellished Room, a uniform skirt from Lands End, an old faux silk square scarf and an old wool beret. My boots are Fluevogs.
