In fact, on this considerably autobiographical story, the lady was a 16-year-old me, and the designer merchandise in query was a wonderful, hand-illustrated Fendi silk scarf that I noticed in an airport. I labored a really unglamorous job at an area bakery with a purpose to afford it, and actually, each single flour-covered hour was value it.

From timeless monogrammed types—of which Burberry and Gucci excel—to artfully drawn prints and patterns, maintain scrolling to see scarves well worth the first funding.
