Shopping Guide: 10 Awesome Scarves

This shopping guide happens to be very personal for me, because earlier today, I, sniff, destroyed my favorite scarf by accidentally throwing it in with my regular wash. It now lies a shrunken, sponge-y mess at the bottom of my trash can. So yes, now I need a new scarf. Click through to see some…
