kara's vintage collection: scarves

a word from my sister:
walking past a trunk full of scarves everyday puts a smile on my face.  there’s something so feminine about the vintage silks, each with very different prints, patterns & details, that attracts me to collecting scarves.  keeping them out & on display helps me grab one when I’m feeling the need to add a touch of color to my outfit or bag.  the “trend” of wearing scarves as an accessory reappears from time to time in fashion, & when it does, I’m fully prepared. my favorite use of scarves is wrapping up my delicate garments individually in my luggage when I travel. 

I read a book, “alligators, old mink and new money,” when I first started collecting vintage & the author spoke of her beloved hermes scarves.  since then, I am constantly seeing hermes scarves in magazine articles, blogs & street fashion.  although I have not yet discovered one, I do have some exceptional signed scarves including diane von furstenberg, nicole miller, bill blass, halston, christian dior & lanvin.  


  1. Lovely scarves collection! I do have some also from my mum, love how silk feels on the neck!!! kisses
