storyteller scarves...

i am all about a vintage vacation or destination scarves...
...and have a hard time resisting any that i find.
many times, they aren't in the best shape, small in size,
or made of polyester....but i love them anyway.
so.....i flipped out when i saw the storyteller scarves from madewell.
...in all their oversized, silk/woolen goodness....

Inspired by old-timey typography and vintage posters, our supersoft (and totally collectible) series of Storyteller scarves each has a different tale to be told.
