Accessory Love - Scarves

Something that can be worn during any season in hundreds of different styles and a multitude of colours is the scarf. Now it's no secret to most that I am a huge scarf lover, I even offer a selection of them in my shop from time to time.

My spring/summer scarves.
Now, it's not like scarves come with manuals on how they can be worn and
I am often told that people don't know how to wear them. So I've decided
to share 10 ideas on various ways to wear the scarf:

1. Loosely wrapped around the neck.

2. Wrapped around the neck and tied in a knot.

3. For the fashion daring, a bow.

4. Tied over and worn to the side.

5. Done best with a square scarf. Fold in a triangle
and wrap ends opposite ways around the neck.

6. Wrapped around several times around the neck
and tuck in the ends.

7. One of my favourite ways, the slip knot.

8. Wrap around neck and cross over once.

9. Tie the ends of your scarf together and wrap
around your neck twice. (Like the infinity scarves)

10. Head wrap. Ever tie a towel around your
head? Basic idea, but twist the scarf
down towards your waist.
Scarves are a great way to add an accessory to your outfit or add a splash
of colour. Not to mention the practical use of a scarf to keep you warm.
(You could also use your scarf as a shawl for those cool summer nights)
There are a multitude of other ways to try out scarves as well as other styles,
so feel free to experiment.

Hopefully there are enough ideas here for you to try it out for yourself!

Oscar Glam

I haven't blogged about Hollywood fashion in some time, so why not touch on this past
weekend's event. While I didn't get to watch the Oscars this year, I did keep my eye on 
the winners as well as the dresses that hit the red carpet. Here is a quick run down 
of all the fashion that caught my eye. 

      Halle Berry looking flawless as always in her Marchesa corset gown. I need to check
out her movie Frankie & Alice soon! 

Mila Kunis is on fire with her career, so it only make sense that her dress
would catch as much attention! Her lavender Elie Saab Haute Couture gown
complimented her dark and gorgeous features. 

Natalie Portman looked absolutely stunning in her purple Rodarte gown. And pulled it off
effortlessly even with the baby bump!

Gwenyth Paltrow seems to be winning fashion nods across the web and I can
only agree with the critiques. She looked like a bombshell in her Calvin Klein dress.

It's a shame that James Franco didn't walk the red carpet like his co-host Anne Hathaway, 
but while on stage the pair did look great (yes I have a small crush on Franco) so I had to include a photo of them.

And last but not least, Jeremy Renner in his YSL tux looking smokin' side by side with
Scarlett Johansson in her Dolce and Gabbana lace dress.  

Imagine the day my jewelry is on the red carpet accessorizing the 
stars! Now that would be something! Untll then, I'll just keep
rocking my own jewelry to the more casual events, like lectures, 
volunteering and group meetings.
