One vintage thing I don’t really “do” are scarves. We’ve just never much got along. Sure, I’ll tie a classic nylon scarf around a ponytail, but that’s pretty much were it ends. However recently I came across this fantastic wagon train themed scarf, and at $5.00, I couldn’t pass it up, despite not know what I was going to do with it! But then, I remembered an outfit I’ve wanted for ages… Judy’s green ensemble from Vertigo, in which she has a small scarf or handkerchief, that matches her collar and cuffs, tied around her belt. So I took that idea and ran with it.
I’m really looking forward to digging out the small collection of scarves I have and putting them into action. I think the same effect can be achieved with handkerchiefs too, and I have a few of those as well. It’s a fab way to add some pop to an outfit, and integrate a lot of different colors into an ensemble.
