Scarves

Update: This post has been updated on November 10, 2015. Scroll down to see the new add.

With this colder climate it’s safe to say that scarves are becoming an essential part of my wardrobe. Scarves can really add definition to any ensemble and are a staple piece on one of those “nothing to wear” days. This Burberry Icon Check Cashmere Scarf maintains a signature style with super soft cashmere, check print, and delicate fringe. It is the ultimate exemplar of how to liven a monochromatic outfit, or just a brilliant way to stay warm this season.

Budget Look – Cozy Meets Elegant by BP.

by Irina on November 5, 2015

Today I felt like doing a new budget look after seeing so many gorgeous (and budget-friendly) fall staple pieces by BP. at Nordstrom. I didn’t follow a predetermined concept on this one, but simply put together what I thought would look great together. And if you’re an avid reader of this blog, you will easily recognize a lot of designer inspiration in many of the pieces shown below. We have some Burberry, Chanel, Isabel Marant and Michael Kors inspirations going on in this look. So what do you think? Did I do a good job on this one? Can you see yourself wearing this outfit?

Alexander McQueen x leopard print = I am obsessed²! You might have already read that I’m a huge fan of McQueen and leopard print scarves are one of my few personal soft spots. I don’t really know how many I have accumulated over the last couple of years, but judging by my credit card bill: still not enough. But how could it be my fault when I keep accidentally finding the most beautiful pieces while doing research for this blog? Take this beautiful berry red silk chiffon scarf for example! It would go perfectly with all my winter coats. But my frugalista heart breaks each time I look at the hefty $555 price tag. Somewhen, somewhen…

Warehouse Two Coloured Animal Print Scarf

HOT DEAL: Use promo code “FREESHIPNOW” for free shipping & free returns!

While browsing the sale section at Warehouse today, I absentmindedly scrolled through the items when suddenly I spotted this super fabulous animal print scarf which totally reminded me of the McQueen one above. It was love at first sight! Especially since the red scarf is currently on sale for a very wallet-friendly $19! Hello, sold! And don’t forget the just as gorgeous moss greenls version! I had to have both. Yes, I’m weak. Let’s just not talk about this.

Posting a steal find for an Alexander McQueen item always makes me a little sad because I feel very strongly about the brand and the designer and would like to be able to support it by buying the real deal, however my budget says otherwise. McQueen’s iconic skull print scarves have been around for a while now and it didn’t take long before they became a celebrity staple. And who can blame them really? The scarves, which are now available in a million color combinations, are absolutely fabulous; scary skulls printed on delicate silk? Gotta love the contradiction. What’s not to love though? The price of almost $300, obviously.

GoJane Sheer Skull Print Scarf

UPDATE (11/17/2012): Found another Alexander McQueen skull print scarf look-a-like in black/red at GoJane. This one doesn’t seem quite as valuable (the StyleInch scarves below are made of chiffon while this seems to be a cotton blend), but at $8.10 it might be a great steal to fulfill your skull print accessory needs. Also, don’t forget to use promo code “GJSHIP60” to get free shipping on your $60+ order!

StyleInch Skull Print Chiffon Scarf

While doing my daily browsing on Amazon I discovered that StyleInch have an incredibly similar pair of skull print chiffon scarves which they are selling for $19.99; a fraction of the original’s price. Sure, you can’t expect the same quality, but if you’re looking for inexpensive Alexander McQueen skull print scarf look-a-likes, this is the place to go. And the best part? The scarves are available in an array of different colors like blue, grey, green, pink and many more. I’ve bought these scarves myself in 3 colors and love them! They’re super soft and definitely worth the price! Probably gonna order all the other colors as well.
