Lost and found

Funny story about this scarf. The last time I wore it was in October, and I didn't really think about it again until the spring. It's a silk scarf, it seems totally reasonable that I would not notice it was missing for the five coldest months of the year.

So last month I wanted to wear it again, but when I went to the drawer where I keep it I discovered it wasn't there. I tore my closet and subsequently the house apart searching for it, to no avail. I interrogated my Sister, my Mother, no one had seen it. I resigned to the idea that it was gone forever.

A few days later as I was walking out to my car, a piece of fabric at the end of the driveway caught my eye. I walked over to the dirt covered material and could not believe my eyes. Some neighbors may have heard some very unbecoming expletives. There was the scarf. Though it looked like it had been run over, it was not ripped or damaged, just dirty.

But how did it get there? My Mother thinks it must have been in my car the whole time and just coincidentally flew out the same week I was looking for it. But my car is very clean, and has even been vacuumed since last October; how could I have never noticed it hanging out in the back seat?

I can't explain how it got there, but I'm very happy to have it back.

  4. It's a good thing you found it. It's very nice!

  5. You're so lucky that it was only dirty. It is a very pretty scarf and it looks great with the white jeans and the chambray blazer.

  6. Something very similar happened to me once, with a necklace. I had worn it a lot, then forgotten it and, when I went to look for it again, found it missing. I tore everything apart, finally resigned myself to replacing it and... the next day is just appeared, right out in the open, as if it had been there all along. But I know I had walked past that spot so many times... I could go on, but since you just rediscovered your scarf, I know you know the feeling. It's a good thing it did turn up, though, because it is such a lovely piece. The tassle detailling on the ends is such a pretty and unexpected touch!

  7. I'm glad you found it! Clearly it was meant to be since you guys managed to meet up again after it so rudely disappeared!

  8. So weird, you must be so happy to have it back as it is super cute! Love the look.
