wrapping up summer.

we’re having a retro moment for a trend that’s lingered on our pinterest feed even after summer’s impending end — the headscarf. how cool does one look when they’ve perfectly mastered the wrapping of a pucci print scarf, more than appropriate on days when we may not have the energy to wash our hair. we tend to fantasize stumbling upon the perfect vintage scarf for a weekend get-away to palm springs, or while trailing rows at the flea market (a good spot to score vintage scarves for just a few bucks). whether you’re channeling lulu de la falaise, or an hermes ad campaign from the 60s’, we’re right there with you (watching how-to tie videos on youtube, stellar and vimeo no less).

  1. Hi Victoria,
    I have to commend you for your bravery in this rather timely, subtly nuanced, and seemingly politically charged post.

  2. i LOVE this look, but i’m terrified of wearing it for fear of being insensitive to it’s cultural heritage. I do not want to participate in cultural appropriation…is this something a gal of Scandinavian origins can rock??
