The Threads That Connect


An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet , regardless of time , place or circumstance.
The thread may stretch or tangle, but will never break.


A red thread , this time in the form of this scarf , brings my basic black pieces together. I find this time of
year a bit of a challenge on the wardrobe front , the weather neither warm or cold , and I am in need of
a change. This year instead of rushing out and buying new things I am ringing the changes with accessories.
I found this scarf at a local gift shop in our neighborhood , while filling in time and delaying a supermarket
shop . I knew it was a perfect match for my 1960's cap , that I found recently.


I teamed my scarf and cap with a black tunic from Nicola Waite and black pants , some red and cream bangles and my black In Zu bag, which is as light as a feather. To reflect the black glasses on the scarf
I am also wearing my crazy black catseye glasses from Tom Ford.


The grey on the scarf is actually a cat's face , nothing like a glasses wearing cat to brighten up my day.

  6. It's interesting how our transitioning wardrobes have a slight overlap in spring and fall. Your reds are wow. I saw the photo loading and, bam!, red. Love it! Your glasses are awesome, especially how they are reflected in the print. So cute but chic too.

  14. I love the red thread words. Such a beautiful thought, indeed. Jill, you're a smart and clever woman. Your style speaks ever so clear with your fashion choices. I imagine you driving in an open top convertible with the speed of the wind catching your scarf...you singing your favorite tune with all the joy of the world.

  15. Really wonderful outfit, Jill, so playful and elegant all at the same time! I like your approach with accessories, instead of buying new stuff. Though I buy both this year. :))) I am looking forward to the red threads which will bring us together some day!

  17. One of the favorite looks of mine. There is a song called the Red Thread by a favorte folk singer of mine, Lucy Kaplansky out of NY, she adopts a daughter from China, it is about the binding red thread. The glasses are fabulous as well!!
