Studded scarf

This lovely vintage paisley scarf (made in Italy!) was adorned with some studs by Alex and sent off to me as a part of a pay it forward post from... last February, I think?

The idea was that someone would create a pay it forward post and the first five people to comment would get mailed something handmade, and in turn they would post and send out five things... so on and so on. Needless to say we took our time doing it, but they got out eventually, and that is what counts.

I of course, adore paisley, and the addition of the studs fits in perfectly with the slightly edgier look I've been going for lately with the leather moto jacket.

Thanks Alex!

P.S. If you want to see what I made for Alex...

I love the idea of a pay it forward post! Bloggers are the best sometimes :)

I might have to try adding some studs to a vintage scarf (I have way too many!) - that's a great way to spice it up and make it a little edgier.

Thanks for your comment on my blog! I feel the same about that striped top you're wearing. Also a staple, it can pretty much go with anything. I love how you dressed it up with the silk scarf and the neon belt. Thanks for sharing and don't be a stranger :)

I like the wide-leg jeans with the leather. It's a little bit retro chic and a little bit bad-ass:)

Oh my gosh, you look so awesome in those wide legged pants! You never wear pants! These look great. MORE! MORE!

Robyn said...

I love the pattern mix here. I did something similar a few weeks ago. Same type of scarf with a striped sweater. I never would have had the confidence to do it if I hadn't seen it on you a few times. So thank you for the inspiration! :)

This outfit is so great and stylish. The scarf is a great idea. Putting studs on a silk paisley scarf is just so interesting.

SO cute! Love the scarf!!!!

Kavery said...

Your leather jacket is so smart and I love the scarf too. Studs are a neat addition

rlutz said...

that scarf is pretty fabulous...love the colors! Great how you paired it with stripes, but kept the neutral to show off the scarf!

Shey said...

what a neat idea, I love the pop of color from the belt. =)

Alex Elizabeth said...

Pattern mixing: paisley and stripes! Maybe it'll go viral!

Ughhh if I hadn't temporarily lost the scarves I would have totally made the deadline. I haven't worn the bracelet you made me yet because I need an extra two jump rings for length and don't have any-- you gave me way too much credit for small wrists!

TaraMixandMatch said...

looking awesome! love the pop of pink from your belt!

Lions, Tigers and Fashion OH MY! said...
