Yesterday's post was so much fun that I thought I'd take another pass through this idea: building little outfit vignettes in order to facilitate making an expensive and/or important personal style purchase. These ensembles here don't necessarily have to be about buying a scarf - I'm thinking of undertaking this exercise for the purchase of winter coats too...
This scarf is called "Sous l'Egide de Mars", which means (more or less) under the aegis of Mars. It's lots of pieces of armor, as near as I can tell, and thus is all about war. Still a madly pretty piece of work, as their scarves always are.

This scarf called out for a mix of bright navy and turquoise. Yes, you saw this coat yesterday - it's not an easy color to find, and it's such a classic, flattering cut that I didn't try to resist repeating it.

Oh, I wanted to make sure you knew this: if you see something you want to buy, make SURE that you check every possible source of the item. I see things all the time with widely varying prices - as much as 15 or 20% sometimes. Shop around is always good advice...
