A classy women can never have too many scarves! Tweet this.

Whenever I am in a thrift or consignment store I browse the scarves. Sometimes one can score really high like my LV, Oscar de la Rente or Gucci scarves. They were all somewhere between $5 and $30. Not bad, not bad at all.

However, most of my scarves are not high end. Many of my scarves were gifts from my husband, parents, and friends. They all know I love scarves. Thus, my collection keeps growing like the intent is to make an escape rope from the Empire State building. 😉 I have to admit, I don’t mind the growth.  Scarves can really update, polish, alter or make an outfit.

Here are some examples how I wear my scarves and how to fold them.

Oscar de la Rente scarf Oscar de la Rente scarf (thrift-store find). Put the middle of an oblong scarf on the front of your neck, wrap the ends around the back of your neck and knot them in the front. Use your thumb to ensure the knot stays flat
