I asked the PR person what type of fabric the new scarves available at Target would be made of but the information was not readily available. Still — for someone like myself — who loves to top an outfit with a colorful scarf — both vintage and new reproduction options are fun way to add color to your everyday outfits.

    THANK YOU, PAM! I’m a scarf FREAK. I need to take a trip to the Maine Mall area (dreading it) – but this’ll push me in the right direction. Love the patterns, colors and choices. <3

    This is my kind of breaking news! I love (and collect) scarves. New and vintage. They really top off or change-up an outfit. Thanks!

    Second on the scarf wearing guide. I have many many vintage scarves – one of my favorite estate sale buys, but never can figure out how to wear them without looking like a. I’m sitting down to a lobster dinner and couldn’t find a bib or b. I’ve just had my hair set and its windy or c. I’m trying to cover a hickey. Ugh. Help!!

      For an oblong scarf, fold in half, put around neck holding onto the looped end; put one tail through the loop, give the loop a half twist and slide the other end through the twisted loop. It makes a nice intricate knot that lies flat on your chest and makes others say- how did you DO that?

    I went to two Targets in my area yesterday and no one at either store knew what I was talking about! The employees saw that they were in stock and refused to look in the stockroom. My friend went to one of the same stores today and they STILL had no idea what was going on!! This is so frustrating, I want to be able to pick from the store options in person!

    Target is doing a nice thing.

    I collect Vera scares and usually pick them up at thrift stores or flea markets for about $1 to $3. I love her designs, especially the bold colors. I even have a set of napkins by Vera. I hope to be able to find a few clothes that designed too.
