I've been addicted to scarfs for years. But what makes an addicition a real addiction. ...? Having so much of just 1 item, at any price, that it isn't just an addiction anymore but a room-filling kitsch habit ?
I just read last night in my bed, that Ruby Wax once interviewed Imelda Marcos and was shown the 10.000 pairs she was the most famous about. Ruby - in her own candid way - said that it wasn't too difficult in filling a room with 10.000 pairs of shoes when most of them only cost like 20$ !!
Ok, that did it for me...Ruby is SO right !
And even as I speak, unconsiously - I've managed to calm down and have control over my habit in buying 2 or 3 scarfs a week...by having this wonderful and so longed for scarf, expensive enough to wear and cherish it for longer than a week.
My LV-sprouse scarf is screaming : Buy less - buy the best !
In this months Harper's Bazaar, by coincidence...my leopard scarf is presented as an accessory that transforms an outfit by the second ...
So, I did think very well about this number and apparently bought a timeless piece.
Bye bye addiction, and a warm welcome to investment clothes and accessories !
