I saw this beautiful coral Alexander McQueen silk scarf with cream skull on another blogger's (Ella Pretty) Valentine's Day post. I thought the coral colour was amazing! It was something I would wear even though I'm not a very "girly colour" person. I was talking to one of my friends on Facebook and she told me she got the exact same colour Alexander McQueen scarf and that she loves it. She told me that there was only a few remaining at Holt Renfrew. So I got it put on hold.
It was a Friday. I was having a pretty crummy week lately. Things weren't going my way. So I thought that in the end, I didn't deserve this scarf (I know, I have a weird thought process). So I went to Holt Renfrew to be considerate and with the mindset of telling them I won't get the scarf. But then, I saw it in person. Holy moly the colour was beautiful. It was a bright saturated coral colour with light cream skulls. I smiled at it and thought, how could I pass this up? and then I bought it. It was $325 before tax in case any of you want to buy one.
Even though the black with white skulls and the white with black skulls are classic colours. For some reason, I just didn't want those colour combinations. So, I put myself on the waitlist for the navy scarf with the rust skulls. After that, I think I'm done because the navy will be my winter/fall scarf and the coral one will be my spring/summer scarf.
Here is an outfit that I wore to work on this sunny day
Wilfred cardigan, T. Babaton tank and pants, Zara flats, and Alexander McQueen silk scarf
When I bought the scarf, they didn't offer me a box. I wanted a box for storage purposes so I went to the women's clothing department and they were happy to give me one. Yay!
In natural light, the camera makes it look lighter than it is.
In indoor lighting at night, the camera makes it look more orangey.
It's hard to capture the true colour but it's a beautiful salmon coral colour (like in this last photo, the area of the scarf closest to my neck is the true colour)
