A vintage top, a pair of designer jeans, 5-inch heels - check. But something is missing. Of course - accessories! No outfit can be complete without accessories, and no, we're not talking about studded earrings or some rockin' cuffs but a silk scarf. Now why didn't you think of that, you ask? Well, women's silk scarves may not be the first go-to accessory for anyone but it definitely creates the most surprising result.
With just a simple fold around your neck, your whole look is suddenly transformed into a whole new level. You can look corporate enough with it during the day and still look ready to drink a few Cosmopolitans after work. With a silk scarf, you can go from casual chic to glamazon. It can make you look all dressed up and it can also dress down your LBD for a casual stroll in the park. That is why women's silk scarves are still so popular right now because it can totally update your look. Even if you're having a blah day, your colorful silk scarf can give your plain white tee and faded jeans an instant oomph. And if you want to have fun, layer it up!
Designers have long since used scarves in their collections and this added to its popularity. Runway shows have been filled with a variation of them, each have different and unique interpretation of the classic scarf. Magazine editorials have also joined in and have splashed them all over their pages. Women's scarves have become not just a practical piece of clothing anymore. Rather, they have become statement pieces themselves. There have been more creations of textured and bolder scarves, in louder hues and newer patterns. Some have been more like haute couture than the usual style of these scarves.
Celebrities alike have also been patronizing this piece of accessory. The paparazzi have been snapping away at them wearing all different kinds of scarves - from plain brights to houndstooth patterns, parading them all over Hollywood and around the world.
Even the literary world and as well as the movie industry have also taken notice. Confessions of a Shopaholic has reaffirmed the status of the growing popularity of scarves today. Clearly, women's scarves have come a long way from just being a functional piece of clothing used to bring warmth during cold days. Scarves have become such a hot item that any fashionista have bargained hard for their own green scarf. So go ahead, indulge, or get yourself a designer knockout scarf but for a lesser price!

She is a struggling single mom who went through a lot the past couple of years, barely surviving working hard to make ends meet. Amanda came very close to losing her home. While shopping for vintage to sell in her store she came across this coat.
After doing some research on the label 'For The Wardrobe of Bill Beck Varsity Shop, Mt Vernon Washington' she discovered the coat belonged to Glenn Beck's dad.
Amanda did what she thought was the right thing, she sent the coat to Glenn Beck free of charge because she firmly believes the coat belongs to him. When he called her to thank her she never mentioned her business or asked for a dime. What is also really special about this story is that on the week of her birthday, Amanda gave unconditionally.
Amanda is my hero.
You can watch the segment here:
Amanda Zych of etsy rogueretro on Glenn Beck.
I thought I'd share this inspirational story with all of you during this time when we all gather with loved ones to give thanks for all that we have.
That kindness is the true spirit of the season and we hold much more in common than not.
Happy Holidays everyone!
Here are a few that come from 1968 via the Rich Sisters of Rich Bible Church.
Sponge area with white vinegar. If stain remains, soak with denatured alcohol. Wash with detergent in the hottest water safe for fabric.
Grease, Oil, Tar
Method 1: Use powder or chalk absorbents to remove as much grease as possible. Pretreat with detergent or non-flammable dry cleaning solvent, or liquid shampoo. Wash in hottest water safe for fabric, using plenty of detergent.
Method 2: Rub spot with lard and sponge with a non-flammable dry cleaning solvent. Wash in hottest water and detergent safe for fabric.
Sponge fresh stain with ammonia: old stain with vinegar. Pre-soak in cold or warm water. Rinse. Wash in hottest water safe for fabric. If fabric is yellowed, use bleach. If stain still remains, dampen and sprinkle with meat tenderizer, or pepsin. Let stand 1 hour. Brush off and wash. For persistent odor, sponge with colorless mouthwash.
Pre-soak in cold or warm water at least 30 minutes. If stain remains, soak in lukewarm ammonia water (3 tablespoons ammonia per gallon water). Rinse. If stain remains, work in detergent, and wash, using bleach sage for fabric.
Hope you find these useful!
