Money doesn’t buy elegance. You can take an inexpensive sheath, add a pretty scarf, gray shoes, and a wonderful bag, and it will always be elegant.
We were out with friends for a birthday dinner a few weeks ago, and one of our beautiful friend’s was wearing an alluring scarf. The color set off her dark eyes, and sparkled along with her personality throughout the dinner. The scarf was a presence itself – at least, to a person like me.
It made me remember, which I’m ashamed to admit that I frequently do forget, that I have a wealth of scarves collected for me throughout my childhood and adolescence.
My mother was brilliant at finding the most amazing colors and textures, and created this collection for me that currently fills an entire storage container under the bed. The styles and designs are all vastly different, and it might surprise you that 99% of them were found at thrift stores, looking hardly worn and for only a fraction of the price.
I have made a pact with myself to wear them more – I have no excuse, there is certainly one that could transform and glamorize any outfit!
