As you well know, I’m not the blogger who gets buried in gifts from designers, so when I do receive something, it’s a special day chez nous! And not many days get more special than this for me – can you imagine a scarf better suited to the woman who lives in black, and who’s favorite accent color is red???
This scarf, from Ananda Design; is cotton, which is unusual for me, and it has tassels on the corners, which is REALLY not something I have in my closet. But I’ve had it wrapped around me and played with it a lot, and it’s pretty wonderful. The cotton is of course a great fabric for a scarf that you use in warm weather to ward off over-enthusiastic air conditioning, and the tassels give just a little bit of heft to the corners, so that the scarf falls in all sorts of beautiful ways, with tassels in unexpected places. I’m going to love this scarf for a long time, I can already tell!
So get thee to their site and check out what they have to offer. I have certainly learned a lot about moving out of my usual “scarf zone” since this beauty showed up in my home…
I’m really intrigued by the idea of “wardrobe heavy-lifters” – those items that you reach for constantly. For me, you can clearly see that it’s my Eileen Fisher black separates, and a handful of pieces of jewelry that I wear frequently.
What are yours?love,
