Hello Fall!

Hello Fall!, originally uploaded by anja louise verdugo.

Photo note:

"A very early-fall inspired outfit from Friday. The weather in Portland is really perfect right now, and I just did my first fall activity- canning pears!

Silk blouse: thrifted
Belt: thrifted
Wool vest: thrifted
Fox pin: Atlantic Treefox
40's purse: House of Vintage
Jeans: J Crew toothpick (my perfect jeans- found them on ebay in my size for cheaper than retail! lucky!)
Shoes: ebay, some weird brand"

My note:

Portland has some great little shops! I was just there visiting in November, and loved 23rd street.

Scarves: Trends and Styles

Scarves get my vote for best accessory ever. There is a scarf for any temperature or environment. They magically pull together even the most boring dead-of-winter so-uninspired outfit. They can cover your head if you are stuck in inclement weather, or stuck next to someone obnoxious and/or unnerving on an airplane and wish to appear asleep. But enough of my extolling the virtues of this magic article of clothing: here are a few awesome scarf trends and styles.

Trend #1: Oversized Scarf. Awesome, if done right (see picture). Less awesome, and more bag-lady-esque when done wrong.

Trend #2: Prints (esp. those that fall into the "ethnic" category)


Style #3: The Snood. Best thing ever for those who don't like hats and happen to be caught in the rain. Can be Dr. Seuss-y, but that's very rarely a bad thing.


Check back again for a post on how to wear different styles of scarves, and what to wear them with!
