Fit to be Tied

As a lover of fabrics one of my secret passions is collecting vintage scarves, my favorites are the ones given to me by my grandmother and I wear them on special occasions. Then there are the ones I wear everyday and have collected over the years on Sunday morning treasure hunting escapades to the flea market and estate sales.

I find great pleasure in their patterns and bright colors and the fact that they are each and everyone different, spanning across the era’s of fashion’s ever changing frontier.  With wisp’s of printed silk you can transform any outfit from boring to chic, such is the alchemy of the scarf. The bonus is they are re-imagined and someone had the added intelligence to save them from the landfill.

The scarf works the same magic for an outfit as a pillow does for a sofa, adding the essential patterned punch to liven up and distinguish the look.

Influenced by the fashion bloggers with their “outfit of the day” post , I created this post of inspired scarf tying to share my devoted passion for my collection and to spark your creative genius for your own passion’s, what ever they may be.
