  1. Wow. Another winner. I looked at the scarf and thought, pretty. But with the full wardrobe and accessories--gorgeous.

    When I look at your wardrobes I feel like I fall in and get lost--in a good way. So much to learn and enjoy.

  2. Dear Vivienne,
    Thank you so much for such an array of lovely solutions to my problem of how to wear this scarf. As usual, you're helping me be more creative about my wardrobe. I'm glad you chose navy, since I've been reluctant to move beyond black. Anonymous is right -- this is a wardrobe to fall in and get lost, in a good way. Thank you!
    And good luck with your shopping fast. I'm looking forward to seeing the results.

  3. Lovely!

    I recently found a 1950s Hermes scarf *at a thrift store* for $4. What. A. Find. I love what you've done here. Mine is the "Mineraux" design in white, and it has so many colors I could very easily build a wardrobe around it.

    Fun, creative post!
