orla kiely for uniqlo!
Photos by Matt Panton
I'm not one to care about this designer or that label. At all. If you know me, I'd just as soon shop the 70% off sale rack, or head to the nearest thrift store (of which there are practically none affordable enough in NY, but still.) Well I've been being nice to myself, and making some little purchases here and there. And the Orla Kiely for Uniqlo line got me excited! The prints and color combos she comes up with are right up my alley.
While shopping, I decided to skip the dresses, and make a beeline for my perennial favorite- the scarves. Even better was that they happened to be on sale that day! This beauty only set me back ten big ones.
I decided to go with her signature stem pattern... I can't tell you how many compliments I've gotten since I started wearing it, which is pretty much every day. The colors are just wonderful.
Even though undoubtedly the material isn't as nice as the original, it's still one of those pieces that I hope to keep for a long time. Right now, just putting it on makes me feel extra special :) I think it might even qualify as one of the most beautiful things I own.

I hope everyone has been doing okay out there, and I'm sorry for not answering some of your comments lately. I've been a bit busy this week, and have been feeling a little melancholy. I'm hoping the prospect of another scarf in the near future will cheer me up :)
Thank you for reading- something I probably don't say enough. xoxo
