Spot the Real: Burberry Check Scarf

Burberry check scarf: Can you spot the real one?
Burberry's lightweight gauze scarf (wool/silk blend) is $395 at It's a classic, iconic plaid that never really goes out of style. I recently purchased my own "look for less" scarf at a small specialty boutique in Cape Cod because I was totally caught off guard by the typhoon-like weather. Sure, I expected rain and packed accordingly (sweaters, boots, trench) but thought, meh, I won't need a scarf, too. Boy was I wrong! Brrrr. So in a moment of desperation, I splurged on a Burberry-esque scarf ($28 is a splurge for me LOL! But I consider it a souvenir from our vacay, too). Anyways, I've spotted a great dupe for $25 elsewhere. See if you can spot it by clicking a link below!


P.S. You can find these on, too, like this one for just $7.25.

Capsule Wardrobe: Free People October Catalog

Free People October catalog
Is it sweater weather yet? I’m counting down the days to the short-lived, crisp weather that immediately precedes the disgusting slush of winter. The Free People October 2015 catalog perfectly captures that crisp, not soggy, feeling of the fall. With the cozy sweaters and luxurious fabrics, the lookbook just transforms me to some cabin in the middle of nowhere surrounded by trees. So, browse the catalog, soak in some inspiration (and do some shopping, no judgement here), then sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s capsule, comprised of pieces all under $50.
