If the bulk of a full-sized carré bothers you, try folding diagonally into a long strip, then twisting a few turns before tying.
Oh, that pink is delicious -- it makes me think of a macaron...
I love that scarf and the way you've tied it - I'm going to try that soon.
That long rectangle is known as the Basic Fold in the Hermes canon. You can do so many different ties from. But in real heat it is still too hot for me and I default to tying the scarf on a bag or wearing cotton or the small triangles. Beautiful pale pink!
Love this combo. So pretty and soft.
Oh, I am so bad at scarves. And my neck is crying out for one...
must say i like this softer color pallette on you better than the darker ones :)
Gorgeous scarf and knot you've got there.
Love that pale pink on you! So feminine :)
Style Spy - thanks! There aren't many pinks that I can wear, but fortunately this is one.Rita - let me know how it works. You can also twist and wear longer, instead of wrapped around twice.Duchesse - good to know. I couldn't wear this if the temperature were much above 75F either. It's just been very cool here this week, so I haven't had to retire the big silks quite yet.
And it hides all manner of stains!
Sue - thanks! Gina - merci bien!LPC - practice, practice, practice! I used to feel quite awkward tying and wearing scarves, but trial and error helped me find the ties that worked and felt best. Just grab a scarf and a mirror and experiment!
Sal - thank you!Erin - thanks, I've learned from Imogen's workshop that my color palette is "Dusky Warm Light," which explains why this color probably works better than the darker, more intense colors.Bonjour Madame - merci bien!
Sher - thanks! Imogen - you bet! :-D
itatiI am petite like you, and love scarves, and this has opened up a whole new world for me... it makes it so much easier to work them into my wardrobe without feeling like I'm drowning in fabric -- thankyou!! The colour is so pretty...I also LOVE the pale green "Walk inthe park" scarf on you, with the leaves... it is yummy!
Please excuse the previous incoherent email -- I was debriefing my sister after a trip home to my Mom, over a bottle of Rosee... it's summer what can I say?!
Katriona - no worries, glad this was helpful for you!
That is a beautiful scarf. I am envious! And I'd like to thank you, albeit belatedly, for your post on the Sofft Franchesca shoes. I searched the internet for somewhere that would deliver to Australia, and today, at the end of a difficult and unpleasant week, my shoes arrived! And they are everything you promised ... gorgeous and comfortable!
Tiffany - thanks! And I'm so glad you were able to find the shoes and that you like them! I still can't believe how comfortable they are.
Dites moi vos pensées...
