During a scavenger hunt in Hillcrest a couple of weeks ago, I wore a silk scarf tied like a man's tie. At one point in the evening, someone referred to me as the girl wearing a tie. You know what? I really liked that!
Lately, my favorite way to add a little panache to my work outfits is to wear a silk scarf. Unfortunately, many of my co-workers tease me with comments like, "Your seat can be used as a flotation device." To be honest, one of the reasons I started wearing scarves is because I was inspired by my former employer who is a flight attendant for Swiss airlines. I thought her scarf looked so feminine and classy, so now I wear them too.
Thanks to blogger The Voguette's post on 12 ways to wear an Hermès and some tips from the Brooks Brothers website, I am able to tie my scarves in several fun ways so it doesn't get boring (especially since I must rotate between the four scarves I own, none of which is an Hermès, by the way).
I have two square, medium-sized vintage DVF scarves I scored on ebay; a contemporary DVF I picked up at the Gold Mine in Idaho; and a no-name large, square scarf I found at a consignment shop in La Mesa.
