Today I indulged in some thrifting therapy to take my mind off of going through five (5!) interviews for a job that could have been pretty awesome and that I would have been excellent at and then not getting it. Suffice to say, Katie was in need of something pretty.
And did I ever find it. In moments like this words become futile, so I’ll just show you:
Let’s take a closer look:
Why, yes, that is a hand-rolled silk scarf with a polyptych design of a gentleman trying to win the favor of a lovely flapper woman and ending up with his pants around his ankles.
The scarf is labeled “Frimmel, by Geoffrey Howard,” but research a la internet isn’t giving me much to go on. I did find these postings on Etsy for “Frimmel” scarves, and the square, pink and brown version of my scarf on Ebay, but I haven’t found any information on Howard or who this Alfalfa-haired, giant-pantsed fellow is.
Have any of you come across this fella before?
*What were the male equivalent of flappers called? I want to call them “flippers,” but I have had aquariums on the mind recently so I think I’m just making things up.
