Originally, I bought a few scarves from the flea market in Sicily to drape on my handbags, but I think I found a different use for it that I like much more.
Rather than this:
You can also use a neck scarf for this: Obviously.. some people forget the original purpose of things.
I noticed my grandpa used these types of scarves to tie around his neck. Then I started looking around at the older men when I was people watching in Sicily and realized tying the scarf around your neck instead of your hand bag was this thing to do. Instead of just tying it into a simple knot, I decided a bow was much more form fitting and appropriate for a woman.
