  2. I agree with Pam. As a matter of fact, I love the idea of bringing back some of the archive materials. You have buried treasures down there and they bear repeating. I get so much inspiration from your posts as they motivate me shop my closet for new combinations. Please bring back a full report of the current Paris street fashions/fads. I'm always curious. Hope you are having an absolute blast! We miss you.

  4. Love the pop of colour....our daffodils are blooming and Spring is in the air so a cheery yellow scarf is definitely well timed.

  7. I'm intrigued by the JC Penny scarf. How it it worn/tied?

  8. That scarf is actually from Anne Selby, and I think you could really best wear it draped around your neck, maybe looped over once, but not too much. It's the kind of scarf that a knot would only ruin!
