Basics + bonus


Just the basics with a bonus.  The bonus is the scarf that keeps on giving – if I style it carefully I can cover the entire upper half of my body or double wrap it round my neck making for a very comfortable neck brace.  I prefer to wear one end longer than the other, you know I’m a fan of asymmetry which not only looks great, it also makes walking a fun challenge.  The long end gravitates between my legs, determined to go the very opposite direction of intended travel.  John Wayne swagger and awkward scarf retrieval usually ensue.

But what is fashion if not challenging?  Happy Friday.x

Just as a side note I want to thank everyone who took the time to comment on yesterday’s post, here and on Facebook.  It was so interesting to read your different points of view and to be honest I still don’t know exactly where I sit on the subject but thanks for making me think some more.

    I’ve always wondered what kind of breed your dog is! And you’re probably the most stylish person to be seen walking a dog on the streets, haha!
