Grey Lace Scarf

Oooooh, looks good on the Paris Grey coffee table!

~ When I'm not wearing it that is ~

Scarves are everywhere!  Such a pretty accessory.
~ around a neck or on a table ~
A friend and I went to a mall yesterday
to celebrate her birthday.
We had lunch and then browsed the shops.
I found the scarf...
Not at Chico's or White Shop Black Market
Or Nordstroms or Macy's,
(where it would have cost more than the $12.99)
but at a shop where mostly teenagers shop.

I love the vintage styles, the romance, the ruffles that are in...
and at these shops for teenagers, the prices are so good...
and really, anyone can find something there to wear
if you look past the short shorts ('Autumn Wear' apparently
if one wears them with a scarf or boots, who knew?!?)
Loud LOUD loud music pounds the ears and heart
And, um, oooooh, that girl who sold me the scarf,
I didn't want to stare.
But was she holding a bent paper clip in her mouth.
or was that attached?
( I said to self, stop staring, look down, oh what's that in my wallet..)
(...ooooh, it's pointing straight out, does that hurt? can you kiss with that...)
(...okay, it's gotta be a paper clip, right?...)
The adventures in finding a bargain
Have you found anything fabulous at these shops?

Your new grey lace scarf is delicious and does look splendid on your gorgeous table. I have not shopped in one of those VERY YOUNG stores yet but now this scarf makes me want to get my walker and go forth. I would be staring also and thinking of the pain in functioning at all...
I so love your blog and your beautiful style. Thank you dear.

OH MY VIOLET...let me tell you, IF WE hour would NOT BE SUFFICIENT for me to take the time to just look at those blue eyes, hear your laughter, make YOU LAUGH..for I am told I am funny..teeheee but then after the hour would be over, it would be like that moment when I was a little girl during cousin got a shiny red bike and I thought it was for me...I HUNG ON TO IT and it took several grown-ups to pry me loose from the bicycle! SO someone would have to PRY ME LOOSE from your embrace...but let me tell you, YOUR TOWN is on my radar for the next trip we make, woman, and we must plan a shopping trip, a glitter session and a walk on the shore...ahhhhhhh....have a great day my sister and friend, Anita
