I'm always somewhat bemused by newly made clothing that tries to mimic the look and feel of vintage scarves. Sure, the patterns and colors are pretty, but isn't half the point of wearing a vintage scarf to be unique and a little funky? A quirky little print that made you stand out in the dressing room is going to look a little silly if everyone on the street is wearing the same thing (see "fear of patterns" below.)
This Nieves Lavi top is one of the subtler offenders, but I'd still rather chose a one-of-a-kind, hand-made, recycled vintage scarf top from Grey Goat any day! I think the rich colors of this particular top would be sublime for the holidays, but if this version isn't tickling your fancy, check out the myriad of other beautiful choices.
