My Story: Through a lifetime filled with travel I've learned that "home" isn't always a physical place. With my travels, I left behind most things --one couch replaced another-there was little I took with me. With each new move, I acquired an entirely different wardrobe appropriate for my home at that time and the chapter in my life I was in. One thing always stuck with me though--my scarves. I started Scarf Around to share my "home" with the world. All of my scarves are hand-selected by me and imported from Lyon, France.

These scarves have kept my heart connected to my global home, stringing together the story of my life.
