  1. I wanted to share my gift I received from a dear friend of mine. She was visiting her home country of Bolivia and spent a day in the flea market section and decided to go through several boxes of scarves that were selling for a dollar (YES A DOLLAR!). After spending hours of digging she found a few pretty scarves and at the very bottom of the box was this beautiful scarf... ImageUploadedByPurseForum1397689711.383082.jpg
     
  2. I realized it was the astrologie scarf but we were not sure if this was authentic or not so I put it away waiting for the next time I would go to the boutique to have them take a look at it. I finally stopped by last week and show them the scarf and the sales people were amazed at the condition and said "do you know you have one of the most sought after colorways in this pattern?!" I had no idea!

    We were not able to date the age of the scarf by looking at but it's very vintage as it's not a color that been released for at least the past decade or two so if anybody has an idea of the age would be appreciated but in the meantime I had my little baby Betty model a few poses for you...

  8. Wow, what a score! I love the photos with your pup, especially the first one!

    I once was given a scarf by a friend - she bought it at a thrift shop. It was originally marked as $3.95, but since no one bought it, it was marked down by half and my friend got it for me as a joke. Turns out it was an authentic Hello Dolly! scarf - it really made me laugh. I like it and have worn it, but it was not a rare piece as yours is! Definitely make sure you wear and enjoy your beauty!!
