Louis Vuitton Candy ScarfSo, I got TI’s new CD, “Paper Trail,” a few days ago and there’s a song on it that I really like called “Swing Ya Rag.” It’s a song you’ll probably hear on radio eventually, and if you like to go out and dance, you’ll probably hear it even sooner. When singing along in my car (yes, I rap alone in my car. You should try it), I can’t help but notice how much he mentions Louis Vuitton and Gucci “rags,” which I’m assuming must be scarves. Mostly, while rapping, I mistakenly say “bag” instead of “rag” because I think I’ve developed some weird sort of mild, purse-related Tourette’s, but I digress. These “rags” are apparently swung above the head, in lieu of dancing, at clubs.

So, I couldn’t help but ask myself: if I were to swing a rag, what rag would I swing? And today, I would swing the Louis Vuitton Candy Scarf/rag. It has a fun, pop-art sensibility to it that reminds me of the jelly-filled jewelry I used to have as a little kid in the 80s. That jewelry had glitter and other tiny, shiny treasures floating in the brightly-colored goo inside, the the arrangement of the LV logos and stars in this scarf look like someone has squeezed all the floating goodness towards the edges. It’s casual, glam, and a lot of fun – perfect for the type of rag-swinging that TI seems to be advocating. Buy through eLuxury for $340.

    That’s a really pretty scarf!!! I like the little logos, that are not “in your face” LV. Subtle, but still so cute with all the colors of Spring!

    I really like this print and the scarf is currently on my want, well actually more like, NEED list. I think it will make the perfect addition to the more conservative winter outfits I prance around in daily and will be a much welcome, spring promoting addition to my tiny scarf collection.

    I saw a performance of this on Saturday Night Live, and he’s seriously swinging around designer scarves the whole time. Leading me to wonder where the heck he got that idea for a song.

    I love love love this scarf. I’d probably be to afraid to ruin it by wearing it though. I’d just frame it and put it up on a wall so I could admire (ok, so really I’d be staring) at it every day.

    LOL, this whole story had me laughing way to hard. Especially since I’m up at 8 in the morning sitting inside a sex and gender anthropology class :( I love TI and have sang that song many times. He has a very interesting take on designer things. Love the scarf, keep on swinging it. As for me, maybe I’ll plug in my ipod and listen to it right now before I fall into a coma in the class. Can’t wait to graduate!!!!!
