The Perfect Neutral Scarf

May 4, 2011

At least three times per week, I wear an ivory, linen/cashmere scarf.  I wear it to work.  I wear it to run errands.  I wear it on the plane.  I wear it with cocktail dresses.  I’ve worn to the point of becoming lifeless and threadbare.  

Needless to say, I’m on the lookout for a replacement.  And I think that I finally found it.

Tonal Metallic Scarf (BCBG, $98)

I mean, come on?  How perfect is this scarf?

It’s beige.  It’s grey.  It’s ivory.  And it has lurex running through it.  That means it’s a neutral-hued, metallic-accented dream product that can be worn with every color in my wardrobe.  

It’s perfect over an ivory cashmere sweater.  It’s lovely under my trenchcoat.  It looks chic with my navy sheath dress.  And it tones down my bright orange v-neck.  

Not to mention the fact that it’s 6′ long and 28″ wide, so I can wrap it around my neck until it is a voluminous mound of silk.  Or, if I’m feeling boho-chic, I can let it drape loosely.  Basic, but not boring, and versatile as all get out.

Yes, I love it.  I think I shall buy it.

    Nothing makes a woman look more mysterious than when she steps off a plane in big sunglasses and with a voluminous mound of silk around her neck. Needless to say I do this a lot. I try to be mysterious, I try.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.

Three Outfits I’ll Wear All Spring

When I started this blog, influencers still re-wore clothes. There were no haul videos filled with the latest from Shein before it winds up in a beach in Ghana poisoning the planet. There were no sponsored campaigns delivering fresh wardrobes each month. The content machine doesn’t like reruns.

The Find: Like a McCall’s Pattern

When I was young, my Mother used to bring me along when she would go shopping for fabric. As a result, I spent a lot of time, killing time, flipping through pattern books. So when I spotted this dress, I was instantly transported to the pattern table at a Jo-Ann Fabrics.
