You know the drill, you go to Zara for a return, you browse, you exit having made an exchange and spent even more money than you spent in the first place. Sound familiar? Sometimes I can’t get over the fact that there is NO other high street store (for me) where that happens – damn you Zara.
Above is a small part of the afore mentioned exchange that took place (one that I’m referring to as “that scarf” due to the crazy amount of questions I’ve had on it!) – Luce originally picked it up and remarked at how similar it was to one she purchased last year – one that I happened to love and forever wished it was mine. You can imagine my delight when she put it down and walked away. MINE.
Monochrome, finely kitted, with a pattern that matches my new blog header perfectly. There isn’t anything I don’t love about it. Depending on how you fold it you can have it wrapped around or simply draped around my neck (as worn above), falling down to thigh level. I love the fact that it is just the right length when folded horizontally (instead of diagonally at the corners it is the perfect length for me – I hate it when you buy a scarf and no matter how you fold it, it falls to your knees.
It’s really lovely and thick, so when I’m feeling a bit rough (read: drank too much gin the night before), I like to wrap it around my neck and hide half my face in it. Great for hangovers, but also really cold days too – so practical!
