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.

    Such a gloriously editorial look! Those Tom Ford specs are EVERYTHING with the scarf and cap as punctuation. Brava :-)

    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.

    • Jill James
      September 29, 2015 / 10:19 am

      I think your climate and mine seem to be pretty similar. Thanks Melanie I really do love a good tomato red, so this scarf was perfect. We are both in glasses this week.

    Beautiful words about a red thread! And beautiful and stylish look! The cats in glasses scarf is just the thing I would not mind to have in my wardrobe too and the match with the red cap is perfect, you always manage to find perfectly match-able things Jill!

    • Jill James
      October 1, 2015 / 9:45 am

      Thank you Olga , I do believe there is a thread that connects . I know you are a cat lover so the scarf is up your alley .

    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.

    • Jill James
      October 1, 2015 / 9:47 am

      I am pleased the words resonated with you Glenda. I love your image of the convertible , hope I don,t do an Isadora Duncan.

    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!

    • Jill James
      October 3, 2015 / 11:48 am

      Thank you so much Natalia , sometimes it is fun just playing with what I have. I too hope that red thread will bring us together one day.

    Lovely phrase: "invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet". Gave me shivers. Such a wonderful connection, too, with that incredible scarf. Bravo!

    • Jill James
      October 3, 2015 / 11:50 am

      I do believe we all have our own connections on many different levels.The red scarf is already a firm favourite.

    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!!Thank you for linking up with Turning heads tuesdayjess

    • Jill James

    This is such a fun scarf! I would have never known it was a cat's face unless you said it! Love that hat too!~~Megan~~

    • Jill James
      October 6, 2015 / 10:12 am

      Thank you so much Megan. I must admit I didn't realise it was a cat's face until the store person pointed it out to me.
