{Halloween Birthday Bash} Affordable Scarves Review and Giveaway



I have never been a big fan of scarves, and have classified them as a winter accessory until I went to my cousins wedding over the summer and became envious of all the fabulous scarves the women wore with their dresses. Ever since then I have been slowly adding a few scarves to my wardrobe so when I got the chance to do a review for Affordable Scarves I happily accepted!

I was looking for something on the fancier side to wear for special occasions and chose the Sequin Party Shawl in black for this review. It's a little too fancy for everyday wear for me, but I have had the chance to wear it out a few times now and I love it! It's big enough to cover my shoulders, and thin enough to be worn all year around.

Sequin Party Shawl

I'm very happy with my decision, but it was a hard one to make with so many to choose from! I also wanted to point out that when I hear the term "Floral Scarves" I immediately think of my grandma but a quick look through the selection showed me that flowers aren't just for Grandma!

Mary Kate Floral Cape

Affordable scarves carries everything from animal print scarves to infinity scarves in every color you can imagine. I won't share my entire wishlist in this post, but here are a few more that I definitely want to own someday:

Jan Faux Fur Cape & Victoria Faux Fur Shawl

Heart & Skull Square Scarf (I'd love one in each color!)

If, like me, you are new to wearing scarves be sure to check out Scarves.net for instructions on How to Tie a Scarf. Who knew there were so many different ways to tie a scarf? Not me!

Win it!
One lucky reader will win the scarf of your choice or a $20 Gift Certificate!
Open to Canada and the US. Ends November 8th
