for those of you that have been living under a rock this summer (or are just maybe slightly less fashion-obsessed than i am), ikat is a style of printed fabric that’s beyond hot right now, but it’s always been a chic secret of true fashion insiders. a few months back, lucky mag featured a stellar site to score authentic ikat scarves for a pittance, but alas, shipping from uzbekistan is not cheap…and, because it was featured in lucky, the entire shop was sold out.
fortunately, the fabulously talented kim over at always in style thought to take another look, and she found that not only are the scarves back, but they’re shipping for free through the weekend! this is your chance, girls – gorgeous, all silk, and under $40.
as for me, i’ll be undertaking one of the few DIY (or hire-out-myself) projects you’ll ever hear me suggest. extra long (as in 8-foot) scarves are going to be hot for fall/winter, so i’m planning to buy 2 meters of their ikat fabric, which is already the perfect width, and have my trusty tailor hem it up. i detest scarf fringe anyway, so this might just be the best of both worlds!
huge thanks to always in style for clueing us in to the bargain!
