Lauren's recent posts with neck scarves got me hankering for one. I blame her entirely for this new obsession. XD
I helped out at a benefit last week, and one of the silent auction items was this lovely vintage scarf. I'm not normally a scarf girl, unless it's a good blanket scarf, but since neck-ties were on my mind, I found myself falling a little bit in love with this one. I couldn't resist it! The kind woman I was there supporting won it for me (at $7, who can refuse?), so I've been having fun styling it multiple ways this week. Aside from wearing it as a neck-tie, of which alone there are many variations, I also like the look of tying them onto your purse handle; there's just something so personal about it!
I think I used to have this idea that wearing a neck-scarf was only what snooty French women did, and I'm not really sure when that changed in my mind. Maybe there were just too many women looking great wearing them? Far from looking pretentious, I now find they're very fresh and elegant.
What are your thoughts on neck-ties? Yay or nay? How would you style one?
