A Fashion Tale of a Scarf

It did not come early, nor did it come late, but let's just say that customs analysed the package very well before it made its way to my hands. But, guess what? It's actually right on time! The timing was perfect for me and thanks to Sarah for the sweet enclosed note!
A tad over 2 months ago Sweet of Confessions of a Drama Queen, Yvonne of Fashion ReCon, and I teamed up and decided to start the Bloggerhood of the Travelling Scarf. This is a global series featuring diverse bloggers participating in receiving the one and only it scarf (one that probably holds the record for having the most frequent flyer miles.)

Yvonne was kind enough to offer her it scarf of choice to kick-off the series, and boy is it a beauty. It's no secret that I love scarves as many of you know. There's a multitude of ways to wear a scarf as well as countless people [today] being inspired to incorporate them in their wardrobes. There really isn't a wrong way to style it if you make it your own!

Here's me wearing the travelling scarf in my style, yet a little differently than I normally tend to wear one. Enjoy! I'll be back soon, as I'm currently travelling and enjoying the hot sunshine.
Bloggerhood of the Travelling Scarf

*This was a quick-fix, because I wanted to wear this scarf also as a bracelet, I just took two sides (end-to-end) twisted them together taut. Afterward, I wrapped it around my wrist and tucked carefully inside. The trick was to tuck before you wanted it as tight as you'd actually wear it, then let both ends meet & knot. The excess may be tucked in as well, or however you would wear it... this is my version.

Tune in to see who's next to receive the travelling scarf... I am on a short holiday visiting my sister, and will send it from the East coast, US... Ciao, lovelies!

  7. I love how versatile a scarf can be, and how you show how many amazing ways this can be worn! Using it as a bracelet was absolutely genius - the headscarf look is amazing as well (and you are also absolutely beautiful).

  9. I'm a big fan of scarves, they can be worn so many ways! I'd need a smaller scarf for the bracelet idea though than my usual huge rectangles. :)

  27. Oh cute, love how you showed all that you can do with a scarf.  My favorite is on the wrist.  I used to do it with a cute Versace scarf, but then people started giving me weird looks and one person even asked me if I had tried to slice my wrist (this is when I lived in LA, so go figure). Um so yeah needless to say I have not been so keen on rocking it on my wrist as of late. #notacutter
