Review and Giveaway: Scarves Dot Net ***CLOSED***

Happy Monday! :)

When you hear "scarves", cold weather is probably the first thing that comes to mind... not to me, though. ;)
Scarves are one of my absolute favorite accessories and I use them year-round. Even if it's sweltering hot during the day, it still gets a bit chilly at night. Scarves also come in handy when you're traveling -- cars, trains, and airplanes tend to get cold most of the time, right? This is where spring scarves and summer scarves come in handy. ;)

I was so ecstatic when I came across Scarves Dot Net and their blog, and I was even more ecstatic to get the chance to review a scarf from their extensive collection... and what makes things even better is that one of you will have the opportunity to get your very own scarf from Scarves Dot Net! :D

Let's start with our review first, though. ;)

The scarf I picked was the Alex Striped Scarf:

Our Alex Striped Scarf is a multicolor scarf that is anything but basic. This lightweight scarf is extra wide and long so you can wear it as a shawl, wrap, or even a pareo! Choose between the Teal Blue Multi with its mix of blue, orange, and beige, the Navy Blue Multi with navy, grey, and beige, or the Red Multi with a mix of dark red, black, and white.

100% Polyester
75" L x 43" W
Machine Wash Cold and Line Dry


Their shipping is fast! :)

Their scarves are affordable and are of excellent quality!
They are the kinds of scarves that you can use many times, in many different ways.


I love the colors of my new scarf because they go with pretty much everything in my closet. ;)


Scarves Dot Net has a wide selection of choices, from solid colors to printed scarves -- there's definitely something for everyone.

Their scarves are all so beautiful, I guarantee you will like more than one... in fact, you'll probably go crazy like I did, haha! ;)

They also show us different ways to tie a scarf (click the link to check them out).
