Ring accent on a scarf
in place of a broach

Inspiration: http://www.wendyslookbook.com/2012/01/modern-vintage-leather-trims-silk-hermes/

So I don’t have a Herme’s Scarf, or the lovely YSL ring, BUT I have some larger cocktail rings I’ve never really worn that would look good in place of a broach on a scarf.

 

I DO have this vintage scarf I bought on ebay 
and the ring was my grandmother’s.

I’m using a long rectangular scarf instead of a square. I threaded one side through the ring one way and the other side through the other way and tied a loose knot in the back so the ring was secure and wouldn’t fall off. I let the ends trail off the sides because the scarf did not start as a square like hers.

Outfit of the day: Yellow, Black & White

  • Yellow is a thifted tank top & vintage costume jewelry bracelet from my late great aunt’s stash.
  • Black is the short sleeve jacket from Target (purchased a few year ago) & Bauble Bar bracelet via on of my Birchboxes (though I didn’t participate in this contest and it creeps me out a little that Justin Bieber apparently wears this bracelet.)
  • White is the stripes in the tank top, another vintage bracelet, & the earrings I made from a pair of vintage clip on earrings.
What do you think? Good combo? Overkill on the arm candy? 🙂

What I wore today – argyle in the snow


Today I’m wearing more for practicality between the freezing cold (20’s!) and a chiropractic appointment (wanted to feel the short massage without a bulky sweater.)

So I’m layered with:
– a plain black long sleeve tee (origin unknown)
– argyle sweater; Merona thifted
– jeans; walmart’s faded glory (no I don’t really like shopping there but love this pair of jeans)
– boots; leather uggs I’ve been wearing for around 4 years & purchased half price at TJ maxx (I just change the inserts for $20 each year and re-waterproof)
– car coat; Macy’s I think
– broach; grandmother’s

Gorillapod and a glif means now I can take more photos faster so I might be doing this more often.
