It's not really a place you think of for high fashion, unless maybe you are someone's grandmother. But I wandered onto the Met Museum store's website today and rifled through some of their winter sale offerings. I was taken aback, and very pleased, to discover some really beautiful scarves in its collection, most of which are on major sale, and all of which allude to some part of the actual art collection.
What I love most about these scarves, besides that they are lovely and colorful and can be styled in so many different ways, is that they are a little bit nerdy. It's like wearing a piece of history, for the liberal arts geeks among us. My favorite is the Tiffany
stained glass scarf (number 1 below), as the Tiffany windows
were always my favorite part of visiting the Met, followed closely by the arms and armor
I also included a couple standouts from the jewelry sale, a cascading pearl earring and a Tiffany 'pine-bough' pendant.
