'R' Scarf

VintageRachel ChurchComment

Maybe I'm partial to the letter R, but I think this little scarf is adorable.  It's a 1950's black silk scarf with an embroidered "R" on the corner of it.  The embroidery is in blue, pink, and green thread, so it stands out well against the black background.  Scarves gained a lot of popularity in the 1940's and 1950's and were used as belts, pony tails hair wraps, and worn around the neck (among other things).  They were famously worn 'touring' style over the head, blowing in the wind, while driving in a chic convertible.  Even Audrey Hepburn said, 'When I wear a silk scarf I never feel so definitely like a woman, a beautiful woman.'  Well that just about sums it up doesn't it!  How do you like to wear scarves?  I've always enjoyed tying them to the handle of a purse or wrapping them in my hair like a head band.  Check this beauty out today in the shop!
