small silk scarf

In some cultures symbolizes sanctity, character, modesty and religious attire. Fashionistas consider it as luxury and keep it in jewelery box. Lot of people wouldn’t borrow it to their best friend because there is story that is keeper of your personality and scent.
Even the simple outfit can be improved with neatly picked scarf. Since we lately love lot of long scarves, leopard print, McQueen’s skulls, Etro’s royalty bohemian rhapsody, seems that we forgot about Riviera chic; small silk scarf.
The distinction of the silk scarf is really in its size, so classic Hermès measures 90cm and weighs only 65 grams. Geometry on the side, small silk scarf really turns out that luxurious effect to make mystique diva of the girl. Since Hermès carré is nobility among the scarves, some believe that girl didn’t make in her life as long as she doesn’t own her own carre; picked in Hermes Paris. So you can touch it and feel it or smell it just like Vogue’s paper. Some are paraphrasing same story about Pucci cognizable prints on small piece of fabric.
What is common to scarves of Hermès, Pucci, Lacroix, Versace, Casol or Ferragamo is their uniqueness. Whether the story on the fabric or memories and moments you will create wearing the same fabric.
Some people frame their Hermes scarf like fait du art or sleep on it instead of pillow .I believe in more creative ways. Tres chic as headband, belt or enveloped around straps of your top or like a bow on the back, isn’t it?
When I was looking for scarves online I must admit I am amazed by vintage 80s collection from nastygal. Also I found some alternative but still beautiful buys on the budget.

p.s. scarf is like a final touch of the outfit, like a fragrance so it’s not the sin to spray a few drops of your personality on it. Never know where you might leave it. Unless you wear Hermès. In that case pay attention.

I've always been a lover of scarves. I can't stop collecting them. My main love goes to McQueen scarves followed closely by Pucci for the summer months. I think it's the most versatile accessory out there.

You are definently girl with precious talent. U have that touch to build a story using fashion for backup. I have to admit that I am jelous reading this sentences, coz I really admire U&UR knowledge of fsh. But more impactful is the feeling that you owe, the feeling that you are writting a story. I can imagine all the people, situations and past moments, wearing scarf... So from now on I just wanted to announce you that I will continue to sleep on your blog waiting for a new post.
With love,
