Do you speak scarf?
Since I have a dearth of nautical scarves, I'm just wearing some favorites this week, all as scarf necklaces because it's so incredibly humid.

Day to evening dressing with Chevaux de France on Monday. I changed my shoes and my skirt and I was set to go to our monthly wine dinner.

A close up of the shoes - they're Valentinos I think these may be my new favorite pair.

(Fritillary, that goes for you too. A lover of butterflies such as yourself can't possibly do without this scarf in her closet!)

We are cousins on this one tango. I acquired it recently in taupe and turquoise and it quickly became a favorite. It was one of those purchases thatvi didn't think about for more than a second because both the colors and design were so stunning.

Fabulous tying, too! You look great!
Thank you sparklelisab, sophieg, lanit and Ladybaga for your kind words! You all made me feel warm and fuzzy! I got so much inspiration from this thread and LOVE LOVE LOVE everything! It's winter in Aus at the moment so all of my scarves can come out and play. Hopefully I will have more time next week to play with all you scarfies!

Wow everyone looks amazing!

Lady B your BdH is unbelievably beautiful and looks wonderful on you! I can't believe that I've been lurking on this thread for almost 3 years now and I've never come across this design. It's quite simply divine. It's amazing that you and tango tried on the same scarf.

Lala and Pierina I love your floating ships mousse. The colours are dreamy and Lala I love how you've tied it - always an inspiration.

Tango your shoes look fab and I agree that you have killer legs. I love yours and Lady B's PdM scarves - I tried the black as well as the lavender cw on today and they are indeed lovely. However there were two other designs that called out even louder to me so am hoping to find time to post pics of my new beauties soon.

I'm afraid I've been away too long to be able to comment individually on everyone's beautiful scarves. Apologies for that. You all look wonderful though and have enabled me yet again!

It is icy and cool--subdued in color but alive with life and story. (My most beautiful scarf is Illimieres de Paris in red/orange/gold cw)
I think you picked two beauties across the color spectrum: The first, soft and "glowy", and the next, bold and vibrant!

This was the fifth scarf I bought for my collection. It has so many bright colors and each of the corners is different. Still haven't found another black scarf with this much color and detail. Great question, Sparklelisab! (I may change my favorite "most beautiful" as the days progress, but for now, it is BdH.)
Ladybaga, Oh, yes, Ballade de Heine is a favorite of mine! I missed out on the black colorway version and am kicking myself in the tushy right now!

First, there IS a boat of sorts--skiff or smack, maybe a cockleshell! But the boats are sooo special because in my perception, the ends of the boats are a combination: boat, whale tail and heart. What could be more rich? So here she is, again, on theme and never worn.
sparklelisab, I love your perception! Both a fantastic scarf and a fantastic mind!

OK many look lovely , but IMO the beauty lies within usually .

I would also love to see flat pictures of it please!
And if anyone feels like sharing their top 3 I'd be over the moon !

Meanwhile here are 2 of mine you may have seen here before ,Red Turandot
and Navy Kimonos et Inros Waves to Arabesques who rocks this one !
[Will take picture EL en K anon ]
frou frou, Lovely scarves! I think we may be "twins" on the red Turandot too!

I think we can all actually wear a shade of red and work our POWER-SCARF!! Love it.

Lala: I like how you tied knots in your mousse and then wrapped...wow, I am such a newbie. I can't wait to try this! And I am interested to know your top three beauties....I know you have a Domes Celestes??? as does Tango, and this one haunts me!! It's not a story per se, but what beauty!!!
Gosh, I'm not sure yet what my top 3 would be.... hmmmm.

From the FW 2009 Carre Stories booklet:

Ballade de Heian
Natsuno Hidaka

Composed with all the delicacy of harmonious music, the carre expresses the elegance of the Heian period (from the 8th to the 12th century), a fruitful period in Japan. Bordered by a traditional geometric design, the central tableau and the accompanying scenes pick up themes recurrent in Japanese prints: Mount Fuji in its clouds, travelers on horseback, in palanquins or in boats, accompanied by porters... Four medallions link the stylized flowers, patterns and typical fans found on kimonos. The abundance of cherry-trees, weeping willows, peonies and peach blossoms, recalls the refined settings of Japanese gardens.

nguyenp, Pavois is a true classic and timeless!

lily_lv, Beautiful, nonetheless. By the way, the jumbo scarf ring does resemble one of those circular life float found on boats! (There's your nautical theme!)

I tend towards patterns that are whimsical (Folies du Ciel, Couvertures et Tenues), Classical (Brides de Gala, Ex Libris, Grand Tenue) and Graphic (Quadrige)
I'd have to say that my most beautiful scarf is one that is much disliked - Belles Chasses... not in subject matter but in the execution (no pun intended) I just love the feathers, coloration, expressions My photo is just not very good.
I won't get into "wish I had" but if I did, THAT would be my most beautiful scarf!
ok...since you insist, Les Giraffes in the Anthracite/Rose coloration.........sighyes, my life will be complete
essiedub, Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all of the ones you've named qualify in my book!

sophieg, In addition to the scarf, I think both the knot and the navy are nautical!

TankerToad, Nice photos! I always have trouble photographing mousselines as they always seem to turn invisible by my camera lens! Your bag looks stunning modeling the scarf, but where is our TT modeling photo too?
