Each Saturday I try to go through our closets and pick out and iron what everyone is going to wear to church in the morning. I don’t always pick out Stephen’s clothes for him though – he has a specific rotation to his clothes that I haven’t quite figured out yet. :happy_tb:
Anyways, I was going through my clothes today and I chose a blouse for tomorrow that is too low-cut for me to wear without something to raise the neckline a bit. It’s a pretty little button-front blouse, and I usually wear a silk scarf with it. For some reason, none of the scarves that I usually wear with it looked right today.
As I thought about it, I remembered a box of vintage handkerchiefs that I inherited from my grandmother. They’re beautiful – many have exquisite embroidery or delicate lace edges. Most of them are just the right size to use inside a blouse. The one I chose for tomorrow has a delicate crocheted trim on it and it really adds a nice touch to the blouse.
The scarves are nice to use, but sometimes they can be hard to pin inside a blouse if they’re very big. It was nice to find something else that will look nice but that won’t add a lot of extra bulk.
So now I suppose I’ve found something else to hunt for at thrift shops – vintage handkerchiefs and silk scarves! I have a couple dozen scarves already at least, but it’s nice to have a variety to choose from. Besides, when you get them at a dollar bag sale, you don’t have to feel guilty for buying over a dozen at one time! :laugh_tb:
