I hear you loud and clear CC, accessories maketh the woman (or man). I have a wide range of scarves and they make my work outfits so much more interesting....they jazz up an outfit. And are an inexpensive (relative) way to do so.

Great post, gorgeous girl!

Love, love, love scarves!I have six or seven, and I love pairing them with a basic tee and distressed jeans, or a simple black sheath.

BARGAIN BEX said...

I just couldn't resist this little giveaway and had to leave a few words.

I've gone ahead and gotten some brightly colored tights to pair with darling dresses for the chilly season to come and can't help but think that this scarf would be the perfect last addition to my winter wardrobe (and I LOVE the turquoise color!) Brilliant and beautiful wrapped (hopefully around my neck) in one!

Thank you and have a wonderful weekend! :)

Fashionista said...

...love those scarfs...can wait to debut soon!!!

weird said...

I know my go to clothing item when I can't figure out how to make an outfit feel more special is definately the scarf! My new personal favorite is a deep violet cashmere scarf from India, and talk about a conversation piece. Nothing else in my wardrobe seems to cause more of a stir! Wonderful post and seeing all these beautiful scarves makes me want to go shopping...

Claradevi said...

CC! It's been awhile... those scarves are to-die-for, they're so perfect for welcoming the fall. I haven't add any scarf to my closet... Should find some (or probably, win the giveaways... If I'm lucky enough. lol) Thank you for the inspirations! <3

Kristin said...

Those illustrations are absolutely beautiful!

Nina said...

Yay for scarves! I really do need a new one since it's getting colder.

Dina's Days said...

wow great artists! Scarves a must have for an outfit, the Chanel one is lovely!

Have a wonderful weekend and congrats to The Redhead Fashionista!!

Aly Reche said...

Nothing like a scarf..A scarf can turn a plain white tee into the best outfit..More appealing. I always say dont over do it but One main accessory like a head band, scarf or earrings can bring your outfit out..Great Post! xx:Aly

Ela said...

These scarves are so lovely. I used to avoid printed scarves, now I love them - they add the perfect pop to a basic understated outfit.
Fabulous giveaway!
Have a great weekend, CC.

Intrinsically Florrie said...

I am just about always in a scarf; I have a neck injury and thankfully I love the way they look too!
That Erdem one is rather beautiful, and the Westwood one lovely (I love that whole outfit actually), but I'm fancying the Richard Nicoll ones, particularly the second. Just gorgeous.

Trixy said...

Scarves are my ABSOLUTE favorite. They are so functional and amazing. I love that there are SO MANY different kinds. And I love them when I'm having a bad hair day, and I can leave my hair in a messy bun and just distract from it with a scarf. LOVE this post!

Have a wonderful weekend, CC!

shopinchic said...

Scarves are such a versatile accessory. You can tie it around your waist in lieu of a belt, you can loosely tie it around your neck, you can cover your hair in lieu of a hat. The possibilties are endless!

Fantabulous post!

Sam said...

Love that sassy illo!! I don't think you can ever have too many scarves! They are just so terrific as you say in any weather or temperature - there are some lovely ones here! Have a lovely weekend dear CC! XX

Averill said...

There was this lovely lightweight gray and white striped scarf that JCrew sold a few months back that I'm still kicking myself for not getting. And now I'm on a hunt to find something similar...that said, these are lovely options!

Belle de Ville said...

Love the Vivienne Westwook babushka scarf.
And...waaay back in the 80's I had an Isaac Mizrahi shorts suit very much like the one that you posted...I should have kept it!

Michael said...

I really love the black gown! It's so chic but of course would be so expensive.

SoHo Accessories said...

I love the look of the scarf and how many ways you can wear one. Glad that this is one trend that seems to be lasting!

alexkeller said...

well i didn't win the last scarf giveaway, so i just bought one! but i'm entering again - a girl can't have too many scarves, shoes, bags, or jewelry, right?

Luanna said...

i am loving this tolani turquoise pebbles scarf! it's a great pop of color for any casual outfit. scarves are wonderful accessories: they look good and feel good, esp when it's getting colder out, like now!

BklynMama09 said...

love the scarf! I have a huge amount of them so am looking for other ideas / inspiration. and love the motorcycle jacket over that liquid-y silk dress! oy - not so great for nyc sidewalks but hey, why not. got suggestions on where to find a little jacket like that? too cute. :)

Diana said...

Scarves are my favorite accessory, and it's finally getting cold enough in Florida to wear them now. Count me in!
