Window Blues

June 17, 2010

Ever since seeing a belted scarf display in the Vancouver Hermès window, I’ve absolutely loved the idea of it. Aside from adding colour and another element of texture to an outfit, it also adds a really lovely draping effect.

This look works really well in the winter too….for the cold, a thicker cashmere or wool scarf belted and layered under a cardigan looks great. But who’s thinking about winter right now anyway? Summer all the way!


Club Monaco blue cashmere scarf

H&M cream sequin mini-skirt

Vintage brown leather belt with gold hardware
Aldo black rope and black/gold chain necklace
Vintage chain purse (also seen in Stay Golden and The Chain Gang )

    I love this idea as well, but have found that it can make any girl look a bit heavier depending on the fabric of the scarf.

    This is such a great idea!! I've never thought of doing this before but you pull it off beautifully. The blue colour looks perfect on you and I like how you chose a two-toned scarf to give your look a little something extra. You look gorgeous and I love the use of light in these shots. xx

    Designer catier watches look sophisticated and stylish. Designer handbags are always light in weight as well as spacious. Now-a-days winter jackets serves not only its practical function, but also is used as a status symbol for emphasizing the user's identity. The miu miu hobo variety that you can get in handbags is tremendous. if you look at the various brands of cheap chanel shopping and you will find that qualities and brands never go parallel to each other. There cheap hermes handbags will be something different with the different products.
