Thrift Inspiration....Loving Liberty London this winter

Hi everyone!! This time of year is when I really enjoy going through my scarf collection to see what ones I will still keep and wear and also determine what will be this seasons new purchase for myself.

I have adored Liberty scarfs forever-not only are they super stylish and timeless, but they are certainly an investment buy which will last for decades too.

For inspiration, I browsed Liberty London's scarves section and immediately fell in love with this black winter fruits wool silk scarf which is massive enough to wear draped as a shawl or spun round to form a more everyday scarf. In fact Liberty have made 2 great video series on  'how to tie a scarf'. Do check it out, my favourite is of course the oversized scarf video which is exactly how I intend to wear my newest purchase.
 

Unfortunately the scarf  above is way out of my budget, so I put my thrifting skills to good use and I found this wonderfully large Liberty Veruna wool scarf  a liitle while ago from a vintage seller on ebay for around a fifth of the cost of the ones currently in Libertys:


 


The print looks like it could be from the 80s and the scarf is in excellent condition-I have already worn it and its proved to be a cosy and stylish addition to my scarf collection. As a lover of all things floral, this is a perfect winter accessory that will stay in my wardrobe for years to come.

What winter accessory will you be adding to your collection this season?

I am still in love with my LV Leopard scarf and find it hard to wear anything else!

That video is fantastic. Though I think I need to watch it a few times & get the hang of the oversized scarf routine!

Hey! That liberty scarf is gorgeous, well done for finding it! I want to see you wearing it!!!!! You always put together really nice outfits!
Well, this winter, I bought myself sheepskin earmuffs so I am looking forward to wearing them lots!

I can't tell you how much I love Liberty vintage scarves. The prices on ebay are really great and sometimes, maybe you will have the luck to snap one in a thrift store for even less? really a great scarf!

I do have a soft spot for Liberty florals. Your scarf is a bargain! I have an old fav Liberty floral blouse and the colours are still vibrant.
