Who am I kidding – I will wear more than six scarves before the winter is over – there will be WEEKS during which I will wear more scarves than this. But these six scarves represent the critical categories into which my scarves seem to fall. None of them is still currently available – and I can only remember buying two of them at all clearly. I DO remember buying my pink scarf the first time I visited Paris (1998?), and being absolutely horrified with myself that I spent so much on a scarf. Now that I’ve worn it about 500 times, I no longer remember the price…
Mostly pink/blush colored scarves:
Halogen, La Fiorentina, Nordstrom, Nordstrom

A scarf that is black, white and warm!
Lucky Brand, String Theory, String Theory
A scarf that is black, white, and can be worn indoors. Sometimes, I just need the clarity of black and white in an otherwise very muddled world!
BP, Jonathan Adler, Julie Egli
A silk square in mainly neutral tones:

A silk square in pretty colors (some of these would be like wearing a breath of spring around your neck in the dead of winter!):
