THIS post is my homage to two lovely scarves!
We stopped in to Madewell while in Boston last weekend - I had never been before and we dropped in to buy my daughter some new tshirts for the fall.
While in the store, I saw the Madewell storyteller scarf. Lots of people are really enjoying this scarf and no wonder!
The details are quite lovely:
they remind me of the artwork by Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant....
Here I am sporting the scarf today:
Me in the scarf, with the raj paisley skirt and a Joe Fresh tank - I look exhausted! It is only day 2 of the vacation!
What I liked about this scarf immediately, besides the fact that the subject was Paris and I am heading there in 2 weeks, was that I already have a vintage Paris scarf. But they are very different: The Storyteller simply lists the names of famous Parisian landmarks. My other scarf illustrates them!
Its provenance is unknown, although my Aunt Betty bought it in either England or France in the mid 1950s. It is silk and very lovely and I took it with me when I went to France for the first time in 2008:
The illustrations are lovely:
It is a real heirloom piece for me, as I think of my beloved Aunt Betty whenever I wear it!
If you need your own Paris scarf (besides a Hermes!), visit the Madewell site here!
Enjoy your evening and stay tuned for the saga that is my fall wardrobe tomorrow!
