Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow: Beautiful Scarves for Chemo Patients

Women undergoing chemotherapy endure a lot. Loss of hair  assaualts our sense of self and dignity. Scarves a great way to feel pretty and healthy. Today I’m sharing an older post featuring beautiful vintage scarves from Paula Horlick of The Vintage Scarf.
Scarves come in all sizes and shapes. Paula would be glad to help you find the right one for wearing wrapped around your head.
A beautiful vintage scarf with its colorful and timeless versatility is a fashion must for women of all ages. With her modern fashion sensibility, owner Paula Horlick of The Vintage Scarf understands the power of accessorizing with a scarf from the 1930s to the 1980s.

From Matinee Sirens to Hip Moms

In the 40s and 50s, scarves were an important fashion accessory worn around the neck, over the head and even on a wrist.Keeping your hair under control in the wind required wearing a scarf. Hollywood’s beauties Rita Hayworth, Leslie Caron, Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly  frequently wore scarves on- and off-screen. The elegance, drama or whimsy of a scarf can be seen even in black and white films!

Scarves Are All About Fun

Today’s vintage scarf lovers know it’s all about having fun with a unique fashion accessory. Vintage scarves come in a variety of shapes and lengths perfect for twisting, wrapping, folding and looping.

A Personal Gift with Lasting Style

Vintage scarves make wonderful, personal gifts. “Today, a new customer was looking for a birthday present for her friend who is a music major,” shares Paula. “I had a scarf that is all about music. A beautiful brown scarf with fringe. The design had music notes and Beethoven and Mozart figures on it. The perfect and unique birthday present!”

Add Pizzazz for Under $20.00

Paula’s collectible scarves range in price from $9.99 to $19.99. A great fashion deal – especially for a one-of-a-kind accessory. Her online store is conveniently divided into color categories. However, if you spot something you love, don’t wait to order these one-of-a-kind accessories or it might be snatched up by another savvy scarf lover. dawn_orion

Fashion with a Past and a Future

Owning a vintage scarf is like owning a piece of history. Two years ago, while trying to find the right online business Paula received a vintage scarf from her mother. “I looked at this scarf and it was so beautiful. I thought of the history behind it and the name The Vintage Scarf popped in my head. The rest as they say is history,” laughs Paula. The “art of scarf wearing” is alive and well thanks to Paula’s hours devoted to collecting, cataloging and ironing over 700 vintage scarves(whew!). While a scarf from The Vintage Scarf may date dawn-60s-hippie back to the early 1930s, the era’s quality and Paula’s thorough examination means you’ll be able to pass this heirloom on to another generation.
