It’s round three of my posts about independent brands, and this time it’s a little different from my norm. I’m usually sharing my clothes or talking about something semi-deep, but today I’m discussing accessories, the one thing that can make an outfit complete!
I was contacted my a small brand based in Austrailia who specialise in scarfs. Sydney Scarf Store create hand-made pieces for necks, heads, and anywhere else you wish to tie them.
I want to share this beautiful, vintage inspired head scarf. It’s so cute and ditsy that it’s practically calling for summer so it can be worn with a floaty dress. Sadly, it’s winter here (but summer in Australia, so Aussie girls please wear a dress with this for me!) so I had to pile on the layers and wear with a more winter appropriate attire.
This years been a good one for accessories, I’ve seen so many stores realeasing them through the seasons. Free People are always bringing out such amazing pieces which have been styled similarly to this. I also saw my favourite blogger, Lucy Williams wrap one around her hair, so that’s clearly where I got the inspiration to wear mine around a messy ponytail.
Instead of buying pieces from the high-street, I was lucky enough to get my scarf fix from Sydney Scarf Store who are indie, sustainable and unique. They are inspired by the early forties all the way to the nineties with their floral prints, bold stripes and psychedelic patterns. They also have no gender, which is another strong reason as to why I love them. My partner got himself one to wrap around his neck in true Keith Richards style. They really are versatile and mix up any outfit - an accessory really can go a long way!
I thought I’d keep to the retro theme and pull out my favourte present I’ve ever been given, a vintage Harrods bag from the sixties that my Mother bought me last Christmas. I even envision wrapping one of my scarfs around the handle of it to give it even more personality.
I styled up some other scarves from their collection over on my Instagram, so head there if you want to see more!
