buried deep in a bin brimming with garish and gaudy polyester scarves. It was like finding a needle in a haystack!
A "no name", silk, hand rolled printed in a Liberty-esque pattern.
A small versatile square in a neutral tan and black combination and for the bargain price of $2.00 how could I pass it up?
I learned this scarf tie from the fabulous blogger Faux Fucshia
You can see how easy it is...
leave the knot a little lose until you thread the two wnds through the knot then tighten it
"Expect the unexpected" ~ mixing up colours and stripes.
I like to use this cowboy tie under a jacket or coat.
Casual and unfussy this is the way I usually wear my silk square scarves.
Vintage silk scarves can be found in thrift and charity shops,
online on etsy or ebay.
You needn't spend a lot of money or break your budget when purchasing a silk scarf.
And however you choose to wear them they do add a dash of colour and interest to an outfit.
Tie one on your handbag as a nod to Babe Paley if you like...
