Thrifty vintage : Dress your life
New shop additions: Million-dollar scarves
I love to buy scarves, although I only wear a few every once in a while. Part of the problem is that Texas weather doesn’t often lend itself to wearing polyester, acetate, or crepe de Chine; however, I did pull out a fabulous red, white, and blue polka-dot Echo scarf for the Fourth of July and braved the heat.
I have just started building my Etsy shop, and I’m adding a few of my finds.
Here are a few things I dug up in June:
Stewardess with a Martini: When I saw this scarf at my favorite linen-getting spot, I immediately thought of old-school airline uniforms and martinis.
Green Aloe and Navy: This would look fab with a navy suit, especially on a redhead.
Classic Brown and Blue: Go from casual to career depending on the outfit. This one is crepe de Chine and feels fabulous.
I realize I need a mannequin head of some sort to really show off the scarves, but I haven’t found the right one. I’ve been accumulating things with the intention to sell for quite a while now, so I figured it’s now or never – mannequin or not.
Please join me as I try my hand at a little vintage thrift.
