Have I mentioned I am a collector? I happen to collect.. .everything, which as people like to point out to me is a euphemism for never throwing out anything and living in a mess of my hundreds of garments and accessories - I hope some of you can sympathise! The bad thing about this is that I often forget what I have and end up purchasing something that turns out to be similar to something I already had. The good thing is that as trends come and go, I sometimes "re-discover" things I had entirely forgotten about and I get immensely happy, as if I just bought them. This is pretty much what happened when I realised I had 4 boxes containing scarves which I had yet to open this winter, one of them just for silk square scarves from a million years ago. I got quite amused at how these little things could give new life to an entire outfit and decided to set them free. Here's a simple three-step guide to making use of your long-forgotten headscarves:
1. Retrieve them from wherever it is you buried them.
2. Do not consider wearing them on your head, not even for a second.
3. Try to tie them around your neck, either leaving both ends hanging in the front or tie a knot on your neck cowboy style like I've done here.
There's an optional step 4 - let me know if that was as refreshing for you as it was for me ;)
