I wore this the other day and was talking to someone about the Woman & Home photo shoot that I featured last week – I described the lime green top that the stylist picked out for me and how it was a colour that I’d never normally wear myself. To which she replied “what – like the colour you’re wearing now”? Er – yes… oops. But this sweater is a yellow-green, and that top was a real greeny lime green… oh, who am I kidding?!
The Thomas Wylde skull scarf that was a bit of a must-have item a few years back hadn’t seen the light of day for a while, so as it’s still not over warm in the UK yet I wore that to keep my neck warm and to pattern mix a bit with the stripes of my Breton top. The black and white tones down the acid yellow a little (yep, it’s yellow now…), and with dark denim its garishness doesn’t seem so in-your-face. Not that it bothers me – I’d pair it with turquoise and candy pink if the mood took me…!
I’ve had a look for the scarf on eBay and it’s being sold for anything between $104 and $350(!) – so it seems that was a pretty good investment I made at the time. Do you have any statement pieces or accessories that have proved to be a great investment? If so what are they and what are they now worth? Do share in the comments!
