Suit up in Hermès scarves

If I were a guy, I'd want to dress in Hermès. My parents used to save the Hermès men's catalogs that arrived in the mail for me, and I fell head over heels for the polished well-dressed men within the matte pages -- one of the few moments in my life when I wanted to be a boy instead of a girl.
Today, after purchasing a copy of Star Von Bunny: A Model Tale from the Paper Magazine Mr. Mickey's Celebrity Sidewalk Sale at Screaming Mimi's (100% of the proceeds went to fund the building of the Vivekananda Public School in India), I trekked over to the Hermès sample sale, where I purchased two signature silk scarves -- one in a sweet baby blue to wear to Columbia University sporting events (ah yes, I do have school pride) and one in a delightfully rich Indian rose and gold.
All Hermès silk scarves measure 90 x 90 centimeters and are hand-printed using silk screens. Additionally, they are hand-stitched and can easily be tied around your wrist, neck, handbag, or head for timeless chicness (and this is one of those few times where "timeless chic" truly applies).

I would like to point that I was probably one of the youngest people at the sale today, as I found myself standing in line with grandmothers in cashmere sweaters and corporettes on a lunch break.

Some things, like Chanel 2.55 bags and Hermès silk scarves, are stylish beyond the whims of seasonal trends and age.
