I have long had a love for the simple linear scarf though. The thing about scarves is, they're the type of item you often get given as a gift, or buy them from somewhere special, and so they carry a lot of memories. Here are some of my favourites, and the stories I attatch to them...
This one I bought a few years ago at a flea market in Portugal, from a lovely little old wrinkly Portuguese lady. I think I payed 1 Euro 50 for it, and two vintage brooches.
This one I bought to wear for a day trip with my family this summer - we'd had to cancel our holiday because I was in hospital, but I was allowed out for a day to go to the beach with them. I think I wore it in my hair, but it goes a million ways.
Ahh, this one was given to me by an ex-boyfriends mum after we found it when we were getting the Christmas decorations out of the loft for her. It was hers from like, the seventies, and I always get complimented on it, I love it.
This one was a gift from my friend Fran, at a Christmas get together a few years ago. Not only do I love the material, it always reminds me of how much I loved spending time with those people, and how lucky I am that we're still all in touch.
This one was given to me by Ruth for my 18th birthday, so it reminds me of that and of my friendship with her. Also, I wore it pretty much every day of Freshers week, so it reminds me of that. Its another one I always get complimented on, and it goes with everything.
Do you have items clothing that hold particular memories for you? I have all sorts, thats one of the things I really love about clothes!!
