I'm wearing scarves a lot, most of the time tied on my head like turbans...
but I always feel sad to not be able to show all the beauty of these vintage treasures!
The only way to appreciate their designs is to not wear them...
just look at them like pieces of art!
Some could be even framed, they are like amazing paintings.
Most of the time, 40's-50's scarves have bright joyful colors.
I have pictured here a part of my collection.
Some are interesting because of their easy to match shades or design.
Floral patterns are a basic,
but you can find so much different ones!
Look at this one inspired by the 4 seasons!
Some are really interesting because of their colors...
the more basics you have, the easier it will be to match them with your outfits!
But you can find also so much fun patterns!!!!
Animals, angels, perfumes, cow boys...
This is really a collection without an end!
Scarf doen't mean boring HERMES squares from your grandma!
What I love the most is silk scarves, but that's also the more fragile,
so they can be sometimes difficult to find in good condition.
All started with that ballerinas scarf from the 50's...
when I found it in a thrift store in the USA years ago for a few bucks.
I really thought that it was like owning a Van Gogh!
Touristic scarves were really popular in the mid century,
but I must tell you that they are not my favorites.
A good thing about vintage scarves is that you find find them quite easily...
I found those in flea markets, thrift stores, antiques mall, vintage shoppes!
From a few cents to much more if you are looking for designers ones.
Here is my most precious one and best bargain ever!!!
40's scarf to celebrate freedom of France just after WWII found for ... 1 euro!!!
Do you collect vintage scarves?
How do you wear them? I need more ideas!!!
Je vous présente ici une partie de ma collection de vieux foulards... et oui, malgré son image un peu vieillotte du carré Hermès à mémère, le foulard peut être vraiment fun!!! On a un choix sans fin dans les couleurs et les motifs, pour ma part j'adore les porter en turbans. Mais je trouve parfois dommage que portés ainsi on ne puisse pas apprécier la beauté de leurs designs. De plus, ils ont un grand taux de survivance, on les trouve partout: marché aux puces, fripes, boutiques vintage... même si il faut se méfier pour être sûre de leur état, on peut trouver des merveilles pour quelques euros!!! Et vous, vous les portez comment ces œuvres d'art????
