I recently won a Tolani scarf on a blog giveaway. Now, to be honest, this meant absolutely nothing to me, as I tend not to follow trends so much, and I just expected a colorful, decent quality scarf from the giveaway.
I was in for a shock when I received the scarf. It was luscious and soft to the touch, and the colors were vibrant and beautiful. Much more so than I expected, and it fits in with my wardrobe beautifully.
Then I went to work. One of my hip, scarf-loving girl friends was like, “I love your scarf! OMG, is it a Tolani?” to which I replied, “Um… that sounds like the name that was on the label.” I proceeded to unwrap my scarf to confirm. She then told me that I was, in fact, wearing the hip scarf of Hollywood’s elite around my neck (and the “reasonable” price of them). Let’s not forget she did tell me she’d be plotting how to steal it from me. In many ways, I was confounded that I was wearing a $99 scarf on my neck; the most I’d ever paid for one before was $15.
Despite that, I love my scarf. It’s posh and luxurious, but doesn’t feel so delicate that I’m scared to wear it. I’m more excited about the collection of that Manhattanite has, and I look forward to seeing more of these beautiful pieces in stock.
