Raaaaawwwwwwwrrrrr….. – the perfect vintage animal print scarf


Var på genbrugs-tour i fancy-pants Belgravia og Pimlico den anden dag (fantastisk område for genbrug og guide følger i morgen!) og i Retromania hapsede jeg det perfekte oversize vintage vilddyrstørklæde. Det skal ikke være nogen hemmelighed, at jeg har en forkærlighed for dyreprint, men er trods alt blevet lidt mere konservativ med alderen, så SÅ vildt skal det heller ikke være (sagde hun og tænkte med lige dele øm nostalgi og rædsel tilbage på gymnasietidens leopardlegging og jeans med pytonprint).

Derfor er dette her i nude/beige/brune nuancer og med bittesmå  vilde pletter som skræddersyet til at blive båret om min hals resten af efteråret. Gav 20 pund for det, ikke vildt billigt, men det har håndrullede kanter og jeg knuselsker det.


I recently undertook a charity shopping tour of posh Belgravia and Pimlico (guide to this excellent second-hand area is on its way!). It’s no secret that I’ve been obsessed with animal prints for almost two decades. BUT beware: if you’re not careful those roaring, snarling wild dots and stripes can easily become overkill and make you look more like messy roadkill than sexy starlet.

Less is more is the way to go. So I instantly fell in love with the understatedness of this oversized scarf when I saw it in Retromania.  I paid 20 pounds for it and it’s worth every penny, it even has hand-rolled edges. I’ll probably be wearing it non-stop and use it to brighten up otherwise dark autumn outfits.
