Foulard de la semaine

Wednesday evening I opened my front door to find a mysterious package had been delivered while I was at work. I recognized the return address so I opened it carefully and found two incredible vintage scarves, a gift from my friend D. who had done a recent closet purge and wanted them to have a good home.

This is vintage foulard #1. C’est absolument fabuleux, n’est-ce pas? I call it “Madame LeBling” and my according to D. it was already a vintage item when she bought it in the 80’s. I’ve left it undone so you can see the design. The background is navy, and the colors are red, green, beige and lavender. This is so cool I’m beside myself!
Scarf #2 is perfect for Cinco de Mayo, so I’ll show you that one next week.
Thanks again, D.!!

    Yes! I love vintage, lots of interesting stuff. And those colors are great.

    Undone that way, it’s a fabulous piece of tromp d’oeil — at first quick glance, I was surprised to see you wearing white gloves in such a campy posture!
    Perfect amount of rust-orange in this — I even think I could get away with that. Lovely.

    Whoops! Just gone back to re-read your description, and I see that what shows up as rust on my screen is actually red. And we all know how Parisian red is, so even better!

    OOH! Madame DeBling is gorgeously cool and chic.

    This one looks interesting! I think you could wear it just like that ( unless it slides ), cause the motif is so fine.

    This is nice and glamorous. I like the colors. I love scarves with just a little bit of black in them, the other colors really tend to stand out against black.
