WHAT I WORE: Vintage Scarf

Monday, June 27, 2011



Vintage Scarf Haiku for IFB Project #2
Print of white and black
The fabric longs for the neck
the scarf, in sheer bliss

No my head isn't itchy, I was just trying to be more creative with my poses at work! Thanks to Justin (my super nice co-worker who so nicely takes these pictures for me at the office), I didn't have to worry if I would have time to take pictures at my apartment because I had these ones from the office. Turns out I did have sometime before Bum-ba (more on that word later), and snapped some photos at home too.


Ensemble:
Scarf: The Vintage Scarf
Pumps: Some Brand from Target
Slacks: Express
Tank Top: Express
Blazer: Burlington
Lipstick: Impassioned (MAC)
Handbag: New York & Company

I bought this scarf from The Vintage Scarf.  Paula Horlick is the CEO of this company and she is also a sponsor of my blog! Look to the left <--. The Vintage Scarf is offering a 20% discount to all of my readers using the code Shalanda20!! You may also remember The Vintage Scarf from my  2nd Blog Giveaway?  Not only are the items she has to sell on her website wonderful (includes vintage jewelry too), but they are extremely affordable!! I literally wish I could buy everything they have to offer! Ha! Make sure you come back to my blog later this week for a full post on Paula and The Vintage Scarf and her other online boutique; Miss Magnolia Resale!

Soooo the scarf is so adorable with its black and white circles. I instantly thought of poodle dresses and polka dot day dresses from the 50s and 60s.  I wanted to stick with the colorscheme of the scarf but keep it the focus of my outfit. I actually started off with a black tank, but thought "TOO MUCH BLACK", so last minute I switched to this cream tank, which I must say was the better choice! I was running late today, so I didn't do my usual stalk of Wendy's "25 Ways to Wear a Scarf" video to pick one for this scarf, so I did my go-to knotted style for it. The last added touch was the addition of the red pumps.
