Small announcement: I have launched a temporary portfolio of my drawings and paintings, located at www.seecreatures.com/portfolio, and I would appreciate it if you would take a look! It can also be accessed from any page via the “art” tab in the navigation menu!

I’ve never been much of an accessories person, but when it comes to scarves, I’m obsessed. They’re the perfect accessory: they can be worn in multiple ways (on the head, around the strap of your bag, around the neck, even as a belt!); they are a great way to add a pop of color/design to a simple outfit; and, most importantly, they are completely utilitarian, especially during these colder months! Furthermore, for those of us who can’t always afford designer clothing, fashion scarves are a great way to own a luxurious designer piece.
Faliero Sarti has a wide range of beautifully-detailed, unique scarves that run the gamut of dressy, casual, and even satirical. The colorful one with tassels (second from the left) is at the top of my wishlist, but I’m also head-over-heels for the nude and grey ombre scarf and the patriotic star-print one.
All available from Farfetch Luxury Clothing
I’m also quite partial towards Hermès’ coveted plissé scarves. I’ve dreamed of owning one of these for quite some time now, but being a broke college student and all, the prospect of buying one any time soon is nonexistent.

And, of course, one cannot forget the iconic, macabre Alexander McQueen scarves.
For as much as I drool over designer scarves, though, I am equally a sucker for lumpy hand-knit scarves, and more affordable hand-made and vintage scarves (of which Etsy is in no short supply).
