I found a wonderful scarf designed by Vera Neumann at my local Salvation Army thrift store recently for $2.99. Although it isn't silk, it had a beautiful pattern that attracted me to it, and it was signed with the Vera logo with ladybug.
According to some great blogger sources, Vera and her husband started the company in 1946 designing textiles. It appears that my scarf was likely from the 1970s, as the Vera signature changed over the years. I am surprised to find that it is 40 years old as there is barely any wear to it!
I really love the subtle floral pattern and vibrant Springtime colours. According to fashion blogger Solo Lisa, Vera scarves were worn by Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe!
Wish it was a silk scarf but with the beautiful pattern and rich history, I couldn't leave it behind, right? I hope everyone had a wonderful and restful Christmas and is relaxing and doing a whole lot of nothing today!
