Last week I showed you the 20's cloche in my collection. Today I'm going to show you my other item from the 20's: this incredible silk piano shawl.
I got this beauty from Ragpickers. It was the last thing I got before I quit working there. Someone brought it in to consign and I had to have it. I was totally enamoured with the colours in it. It was being sold for $80 and I had no money at the time (poor university student that I was), so I made a deal with the owner to trade all of my remaining consignment items for it.
Truth be told I've never worn it out. I've always wanted to wear it over a black dress to a wedding or something, but I'm afraid of wrecking it. It's in pristine condition - none of the fringe is missing or in terrible shape and the embroidery is all in pretty good shape too!
Maybe one day I'll be brave enough to wear it.
