While visiting my mom, I found this huge bag of the most unusual silk scarves. I'm not sure if they were bows, sashes from blouses, originally scarves, scrap fabric or what. The could possibly be samples from my grandfather who used to work for Christian Dior. Wherever their origin, they are mine now and i ADORE them. Brightly colored and tres chique, they are really fun to use in place of a tie. They can look rather dandy without being stuffy, and people have really been responding to them well!  Even better, they are getting me out of my t-shirt prison and into some button-ups that had been abandoned in the closet. Below are a few ways I have figured out how to wear them.  See if you can find any (or make any) and work them into your wardrobe.
