in real life - no one ties scarves jauntily to their handbags do they?

Love the name.

I do - but only if I get too hot and can't be arsed to carry it. In fact, I currently have a leopard print one tied to my bag, as I've just returned from town and it was farkin boiling in all of the shops.

I rarely venture outdoors without a jaunty scarf on my handbag. I find it's useful for wiping noses.

I have been known to tie a scarf to my bag for similar reasons to Remus.

I couldn't confirm that it was done jauntily

I might do in future. Sounds like the kind of thing schoolgirls did in the eighties IIRC.

in other fashion judgements i think that thsoe trapper hats are like a " here is the wanker" symbol

those adn straw trilbys

I did today, I had THE ebay scarf on, got too hot in town, so tied it over the handles of my bag ...............

Would it not get all tangled up with the zips, tassels, numerous 'charms' and little blue dog? confused

SueNarmy, my ex wears a straw trilby, he is a definite wanker.

Are you looking at Next stuff?

Ladies of a certain age do that round these parts

And how's the leoapard cardi?

SueNarmy Sat 24-Sep-11 14:53:10

too hot to wear still - i overheat when i teach...

BlowHole Sat 24-Sep-11 14:53:27

How old do you have to be to be "of a certain age" Post 40?

SueNarmy Sat 24-Sep-11 14:54:12

gin and jag i think

with too much silver jewellery

BlowHole Sat 24-Sep-11 14:56:36

I'll get my (unfashionable) coat then.

DoubleDegreeStudent Sat 24-Sep-11 14:58:21

I do. It means a plain black bag looks more like it's meant to go with your outfit, and (opposite to Remus) if it gets cold I always have something extra to put on.

I also caught my friend doing the walk of shame. She pretended to ignore me and then later claimed it wasn't her, but I had spotted her scarf on her bag. No way she could deny that! grin

I was thinking more well preserved late 50's early 60's.

Oh Sue tried on a lovely top today in whistles - the adele double leopard 20% off in whistles next week with grazia . . .

Our school decided in their wisdom to turn the heating on the other day - AND we have to keep jackets on at all times. Bonkers.

DoubleDegreeStudent Sat 24-Sep-11 15:05:50

You have to keep your jacket on?! Are you a pupil or a teacher?!

A teacher! I know...I know....

God, that top is gorge.

SueNarmy Sat 24-Sep-11 15:50:14

i LOVE that
have much admired block heeled navy tassel suede laofers( £20 in next sale in summer)
kids adn staff LOVE them, would look nice with top

BehindLockNumberNine Sat 24-Sep-11 15:59:32

I do, but not jauntily. More in a it-is-too-hot-to-wear-this-thing-and-I-am-carrying-too-much-stuff-so-let's-tie-it-on-here-else-I-will-drop-it kind of way...

warmandwooly Sat 24-Sep-11 16:25:22

I do for similar reasons to other posters..when it gets too hot i tie it on a handle. However its a rather messy affair as opposed to any sense of style

Wished I had one of my bigger handbags with me yesterday rather than a tiny one, or I would have tied mine up when I overheated!
