By March 3, 2015Blog

Oh, March…you certainly came in like a lion this year…
Many of us are just not talking about the “s-word” any longer, and there’s definitely still an early March chill in the air. Going forward, we all know how this early spring weather plays out; some days are going to be warm, and then suddenly be cool again. But that’s spring: beautiful, refreshing and unpredictable.

A bold printed or brightly colored vintage shawl is one excellent item that stands up to any outfit, in almost any weather. It looks elegant, is soft and luxurious, and can serve as a wrap with an evening gown, or a cosy scarf with a spring jacket.

And these vintage prints from India are simply stunning.

For instance, if you’re looking for a detailed and elegant accessory, this embroidered vintage shawl is not only functional, but a conversation piece, not to mention one-of-a-kind:
