Adorn
A French Riviera holiday

This top reminds us of a glamorous holiday by the sea or an after-dinner stroll on the boardwalk. We found this beautiful vintage silk scarf in a thrift store and transformed it into a luxurious top simply by threading in a thick chain necklace. There are about a million things you can do with a good scarf, and some of them require only a needle and thread.
