As women we all have our favorite accessory. From head bands to toe rings, and everything in between. Nothing can make or break an outfit more than a fabulous accessory. I tried to narrow it down, but I can’t- I have two. Leg warmers and Scarves.
For those of you living under a rock, leg warmers are just what the name says. Ballet dancers originally wore them to keep the leg muscles warm… This was news to me because all this time I thought the costume designers on the set of “Flashdance” invented them!
I started rocking the scarf when I lived in Rome, Italy in 2004. Before this, the only scarves I had ever worn were bulky knit ones to play in the snow when I was about 10! The fashion scarf became a new concept to me and one I could not get enough of. Cotton, jersey, cashmere, linen, silk, pashmina… You name it, I have it! It is a timeless accessory that I don’t think will ever go out of style.
What is your favorite accessory and where did your love for it originate?
Cheers, The Diva
