The Scarf… A Girl’s Best Friend

Scarves can add a fantastic versatility to your wardrobe and give your outfit that extra pizzazz. Beautiful silk and cashmere scarves will earn a place in your wardrobe due to their elegance, sophistication and chameleon ability to enhance every outfit. 

Quality lightweight scarves can be worn across all seasons. These are my favourite ways to wear scarves year round:

TOP TRICKS: Make the scarf unexpected…

Accessorise your Accessories

Scarves are a wonderful way to incorporate a dash of colour or print onto a classic leather handbag. Simply tie your scarf around the strap; or if your handbag has loops or buckles, lace your scarf through and around your bag for fresh elegance.     

Scent your Scarf
There is nothing sexier than when you walk by someone and the scent of their perfume lingers behind them. To leave your mark on a room, mist your favourite fragrance onto your scarf. To do this spray your perfume into the air and wave your scarf through it. Your subtle, sexy trademark of scarf and sweet scent will make a classic statement.

THIS GIRL CANNOT RESIST…

My Summer Love List

This summer I have been indulging in many delicious pleasures from fashion to food, travel and fun. My top things I cannot resist this summer:

The Style of January Jones ala Betty Draper
January Jones’ transformation as the stylish Betty leaves my fashion senses speechless! Channelling Grace Kelly, Betty is always perfectly polished and dressed to perfection.

Betty’s 1950’s full skirts, pearls and beautiful luscious red lips are perfectly connected with the celebration of women that swept across the Autumn / Winter 2010 shows. Louis Vuitton and Prada celebrated the female curves and sent a kiss to this stylish time in fashion history.  At his “And God Created Woman” collection for Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs said: “Ah, women, women, women… we wanted to celebrate the beautiful intrinsic value and the joy of being a woman”.

Lola’s Cupcakes
I adore these delicious, gorgeous cupcakes. They are always so exquisitely iced in lovely colours, sparkly glitter and sprinkles. These delicacies are also a marvellous excuse to venture into Selfridges or Harrods (if you needed another that is).

I don’t know what it is about cupcakes. It may be nostalgic memories of childhood, dreams of picturesque afternoon garden tea parties or just how pretty they truly are. Whatever the reasoning they make me happy just looking at them!

When taking a mini break to Paris you want to look chic, carefree and not like a tourist. Packing for one of the most fashionable cities in the world can be tricky.

Channel city chic in pieces which can be worn any place or time:

Accessorise
Think scarves, headbands and handbags! It is exactly what one needs to liven up a classic Paris inspired ensemble and show off some serious style…

Scarves can add that perfect edge to any outfit. They are also a fantastic way to incorporate pops of colour or print in amongst your black, white and grey separates. Scarves evoke an old Hollywood allure, reminiscent of iconic ladies like Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. For summer, a gorgeous fine silk scarf is light weight and will also create beautiful movement on your body. Tie it elegantly around your neck, wear it as a hear accessory, drape it around your shoulders as a shawl or secure it as a belt around your waist…be creative.

If you are leaving your hotel without a scarf, then a headband is imperative! Headbands are a fashion staple and the styling possibilities are endless. From sweet headbands with bows to classic thick black bands ala Brigitte Bardot – you can glam it up, make it preppy or keep it cool and city chic. They are easy and effortless to style and will cover a multitude of hair sins. A headband is guaranteed to give every outfit a fresh twist!

When it comes to handbags you need to go iconic. Think IT bag status. The Chanel 2.55, Hermès Birkin or one of the new status Celine Classic handbags will definitely turn heads. These bags are status symbols, signs of your style tribe. These bags can change your life… not to mention how amazing they could make your trip!
