Mauve Lace

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket
(American Apparel body con dress, NARS lipstick in Heat Wave, Ports 1961 mauve scarf)
This past summer I blogged about going to a Pre-Spring Preview of Porst 1961, and briefly talked about a scarf I bought there. Well here it is, finally in detail.

Tia Cibani, the creative director at Ports, basically created a masterpiece when she produced this scarf. It is like wearing a piece of art around... so incredible! I bought this one and my aunt bought a cream linen one as well. They were on sale and too good to pass up. There are about a dozen clear snap closures on the edges of the piece so that you can fashion it in multiple ways- wrap it around your body like an apron, let it lie free, tie it around your neck etc. and the accordion type folding makes it ingenious.

Sometimes fashion can go wrong, and sometimes it can go very, very right...

lovely piece of structural art. it's not like anything i've ever seen - i think you could wear this with just about anything and it would look chic.
