I tend to keep a scarf of some sort in my handbag and carryall for various reasons, as I've used them to alter the look of an outfit on many occasions.
This is an outfit that I wore one weekend to view art pieces that a friend was selling, and then to go shopping later. After brunch we did a bit of vintage shopping and thrifting, which is always wonderfully time consuming, but also a lot of fun! I wanted to find antique pieces, however instead, I pretty much scored several other pieces: stemware, this leather handbag, and bird printed scarf.
At the shop that I bought the handbag and stemware from all proceeds and donations were going to support children's charities, so how could I not take peek and donate! I managed to get a total of 8 pieces all for the equivalent of buying a cup of tea! You can't beat a great cause and box of excellent buys!
I paired my newly purchased scarf with an old jacket that I had changed the buttons on. Originally, it had plain large buttons, so I sewed on new buttons to give the jacket more character. Since the jacket is navy, choosing a more detailed button worked well!
Have you found a great deal on anything recently?
