This scarf is another great find on Amazon. I subscribe to their Prime service, so I can easily send gifts to far-off family members and buy necessities (and fun things) for myself that might be difficult to find locally. I often know exactly what I want, and when I do, substitutes will not suffice. I would much rather spend an hour searching for the perfect thing online than two hours driving around town/walking through the mall, only to find that I’d have to drive over an hour to L.A. anyway. At some point, I got it into my head that I needed a polka-dot scarf. This one came in square or rectangular, various colors, and several other patterns, and it’s the softest silk ever. I chose the rectangular one, because I am so fond of tying my scarves in sweet little bows.
The black with white polka dots combination is perfect for a pseudo-vintage look. And I think it goes perfectly with these peep-toe shoes from Newport News (sorry, I got them over a year ago and they are no longer available).
Matching red lips and nails, an updo with hair flower, and flesh-tone stockings complete the vintage effect. I just wish the stockings had a back seam… But don’t get me started on that again! ;-D
Are you an Amazon Addict like me? Do you prefer to shop online, or in stores?
