I stumbled upon a lacy one that has a vintage quality and is so pretty and feminine that it could be worn to a wedding and I couldn't wait to show you.
I found it at French Vanilla Home, a shop that I regularly frequent and it was surprisingly affordable.
(I will write a post on this shop later)
Many random lacy features and details make tying this one as effortless as can be.
This scarf practically ties itself!
place scarf in front of neck
take the two long ends
put them over your shoulders to the back cross them and bring them over opposite shoulders
then forward and tie loosely
what could be easier?
move and arrange those features that you want to see most
play with your scarf
never let doubts about your ability to wear a scarf stop you
once you wear one a few times you'll be a pro!
this soft piece of cloth reminds me of a cloud
here the ornate bead like details are in front
while the long lacy edges are in the back
can you imagine how this scarf could dress up a simple dress?
I won't need to wear pearls with this scarf but I will
because I love how they look together
if you look at the photo you can see I have "big hair"
that photo was taken on one of our anniversaries
many years ago
in the '80's
we are on our way out for dinner.
I am wearing pearls
as I have done for years
the pearls on the scarf were a Valentine's Day gift from Mr. HB several years ago
the pearls on my neck in the photo are a baroque opera length strand I picked up at the Antique Mall.
Mother and Father gave me pearl studs early on and I still have them and wear them often.
I'd love a pair of gum ball sized studs
lovely daughter has some and they are her signature look so I hesitate because I feel that might just be wrong.
I really do not "need" any more pearls
I have plenty
as I do scarves...
but that doesn't stop me from looking
Duchesse has a firm grasp on pearls
visit her here.
She loves pearls and has done her research.
I love her pearl posts!
My question is...
what accessory do you most enjoy wearing?
(Perhaps you are a scarf and pearl girl like me.)
