The Neck's Big Thing!

Good Evening Everyone,its Monday December 26,2011! 

  No Snow here and I'd have to admit that's a very good thing in my opinion! No snow on the ground makes life a bit more easier and cleaner traveling in the cold weather with a toddler ! However , I  do like the snow , especially when it's nightfall, dead quiet out and you peak out to see everything covered and sparkling with snow. This moment is solely contingent on the fact that I am looking out the window to enjoy the scenery and  not because the Town has placed an emergency Parking Ban requiring me to leave the comfort of my heated home to clean off and move my car at 11pm. 

  Anyways.. It's a fact, there's no snow on the ground at the moment,but I am still wearing plenty of items to stay warm this Winter. Gloves, Coats , Boots , Hats  and my Very Favorite Item, the Scarf! I love the fact that you can take an outfit from DULL to Fabulous  just by adding a darling Scarf.

 Since there are so many types of scarves , and patterns its a great opportunity  to really express your personal style. Did you know?  Scarves have been around since Ancient Rome where it was used to keep clean and used to wipe the sweat from the neck and face in hot weather. Scarves were originally worn by men around their neck or tied to their belt.Later women began using the scarf as fashion item. Today,people all over world today still enjoy wearing them.

    My heart has a special spot for  Vintage scarves. I often  find a beautiful scarves at the local thrift stores, Ebay, or my favorite the Occasional "Do you want this, I never wear it?" Gift! Check out these goodies , available on Etsy .

  1. I actually still hold on to a book: 50 Ways to Tie a Scarf! I love that scarves are quite fashionable (again). However, I wear them as my favorite accessory no matter what "the latest acceptable fashion flavor-of-the-month" dictates (except jewelry and hats).

    Thanks for a great blog!

  2. What a great blog! And I learned a couple of things about scarves that I didn't know too! :-) Thanks for sharing my red and black scarf here. And I love the plaid scarf too.
