Happy Friday! Today’s fashion lesson, add a scarf!
A few years ago I was in a high-end charity consignment store in San Francisco.
The woman volunteering that day was friendly and warm and we got to talking about scarves.
She told me a story of when she was in Paris and her husband was at a conference so she was at loose ends.
She wanted to do some window shopping but the skies opened and down came the deluge.
She took refuge in the Hermes store, knowing she couldn’t afford to buy anything but she said
the sales lady was so wonderful, she spent half an hour teaching her all different ways to tie a
scarf to maximize its use.
The sales lady knew she wasn’t going to get a sale but she just wanted to share some good wardrobe knowledge.
Needless to say, I ended up buying a scarf from the storyteller after she shared with me what she had learned
You don’t need to go to Paris or even San Francisco because Chronicle has the perfect book to meet all of
your scarf needs.
To quote the author “A scarf is the last flourish, the exclamation point to the daily narrative of getting dressed,
and it has the ability to truly make an outfit.”
