wrapped with woe

This is a true testament that you should never, ever rest on your laurels when a certain Alexander McQueen scarf is concerned. 


I spied this particularly scarf in a Choice store in Bluewater, a week before Christmas, whilst supposedly shopping for loved ones, rather than myself. Instantly I fell in love and vowed I would treat myself to it in the New Year. How very foolish of me...  


I have the white and black McQueen scarf and worship its silky serenity. I thought the rich purple, tinted with the gold skulls, was sensational and I have been pining for it ever since. I am now left scarf-less and mournful. I have scoured online and stores near me, but it would transpires that this little gem is well and truly sold out!


So, if you happen to witness this beauty, send it my love.

So bizarre this was the one my bestie wanted for Xmas from her Mum but couldn't get anywhere!

Gutted that you can't find it anywhere sweets, hopefully they'll bring out a new colour scheme you'll like equally as much x

That colour is lovely! I'll let you know if I see it anywhere.

I'm currently pining after this one:

The scarf is lush :-) Sorry to hear you can't find it, it's so annoying when something you really want seems to be sold out everywhere, will let you know if I come across one! x

Such a shame. That happened to me with a jacket I wanted for ages. I'm now calling every Topshop in London to find it, still no luck.
Maybe try ebay?..

The purple version is stunning! Lucky you having one already though even if it's the B&W one.
I only have a RI one, inspired by McQueen.

Weird a similar thing happened to me when I worked at HN I had spied a black one with red skulls which I was going to get. For some bizarre reason I left it for a while and went to buy it and saw one of the girls from menswear rocking it. No more to be seen. I had to get a slightly different one which is black white and pink with different shaped skulls. I like it but still would have preferred the red and black one :-(

Pretty scarf but out of the 2 I think I prefer the black/white one but I have seen Frankie from the Saturdays wearing the purple one and it actually looks a lot better on than in the pictures! Beautiful...
