One of my favourite accessories is a scarf. Maybe it’s because we live in a snow dome for half of the year so it’s a practical accessory that keeps me warm and looking good. Or maybe it’s a great way to hide my old wrinkly neck (30 is rough man). Or could it be that it’s a great way to sneak snacks into the movie theatre? The answer is probably all of the above and more. Scarves are such an easy and accessible way to up your fashion game, not to mention they are incredibly versatile, which is why they are at the top of my list for favourite accessory. And I am not the only one. Everyone at NEAT love’s a good scarf!
So needless to say we were very excited when we heard about a new store opening in Calgary that focuses on selling luxury scarves. Beyond Scarf is the brainchild of Vinda Tanuhadi and aims to bring artisanal luxury scarves, along with bow ties and other scarf-like accessories, to the Calgary scene. The scarves are sourced from all over the world and Vinda’s goal to find one-of-a-kind pieces for her store.
Case in point this amazing bright under-the-microscope scarf! As a nurse I am usually tits deep in pathophysiology all day. So finding a scarf called Love Molecules, which turns science into art, it a lovely partnership for me. And did I mention it’s bright? Like slap-you-in-the-face bright? That’s the kind of bright that I like.
But Beyond Scarf has more than just brightly coloured scarves, they’ve got something for everyone. Even people who don’t like seizure inducing bright colours. (I know these people exist, I just don’t fraternize with them). So if you are in the mood for a new scarf and want something unique, then definitely check out Beyond Scarf, opening on November 17, 2017 at #110 815 17 AVE SW. You won’t be disappointed.Beyond Scarf Molecule Scarf, Winners coat (similar here), ti:baeg pants (similar here), Melissa Shoes
