Here at NRA Women, we talk about secreting defensive firearms on our persons quite a bit—after all, we are the NRA—but we don't talk quite as often about our wardrobes. (Well, at least the part of the wardrobes that won't be accompanying us on the range or in the field, that is.) That said, the NRA Women's Leadership Forum Online Silent Auction is the perfect opportunity to discuss a woman's greatest wardrobe force multiplier: the scarf.
Precise as a rifle, a scarf can transform the simplest ensemble into a statement. Versatile as a shotgun, a scarf can cinch your waist, warm your neck, conceal a coffee stain or even serve as a towel in a pinch. Handy as a pistol, a scarf can go with you anywhere. Here are three scarves all up for bidding right now!
15th Annual NRA Women's Leadership Forum Commemorative Scarf
Every year for the last 15 years, the NRA Women's Leadership Forum commissions a very special scarf. (Lesser scarves will not do to commemorate the time we enjoy together at the NRA Women's Leadership Forum Luncheon and Auction!) Elegant and beautiful, this year's scarf is custom designed by Vineyard Vines for NRA Women. Perfect for any color palette, this scarf is a masterpiece of the muted tones so au courant in 2021. Hues of cornflower and rust evoke the slow warmth of late summer that we're expecting in Houston. As it is crafted of 100% silk, this scarf is both warm and breathable. Not least, you should know that the 2021 Commemorative Scarf is a limited-edition run with only 80 available at the time of this writing. Time to bid!
La Fiorentina Reversible Shawl
Whoa, winter is on its way! You'll be counting down the days to the first frost with this gorgeous shawl in rex rabbit fur and pure cashmere. Generously donated by Veronica Kosich, this shawl features a cheetah print on one side and a zebra print on the other, so you'll be ready for whichever animal print the fashion mavens have decreed we'll all be wearing into 2022. Warm, versatile, and elegant, this scarf is a statement piece that you'll want to repeat over and over. Wild!
Lafayette 148 New York Zebra Print Scarf
If that last shawl sounds a bit too heavy to think about right now, you'll be pleased to know that the NRA Women's Leadership Forum Auction's Lafayette 148 New York Zebra Print Scarf will weigh much lighter on your shoulders. Made of silk twill and measuring 35" by 35", this scarf makes a perfect travel scarf for the NRA Woman whose adventures are the warmer side. Its muted tones twist beautifully into the perfect accessory for any outfit. Donated by Susan Springhorn, this lovely scarf will have all your friends asking where you got it. You don't have to tell them it was right here.
