First Try with Pearls!

This wrap inspired by a dear friend (you know who you are!) who has been wrapping for only a few short months and has quickly become a wrapping superstar!  (I’d love to feature her as a Lady Wrap Star!  Soon, hopefully!)  Her signature look is adding beautiful pearls to an already gorgeous wrap, and I’ve been searching for a nice pearl headband to try it with!  Finally found one!Gold green pearls wrapunzel andrea grinberg

I started off with a green pashmina, then added my favourite gold shimmery scarf (will I ever get tired of this tichel? I hope not!) – then topped it off with the beautiful pearls and green pin.  What do you think?

Sending love to you all!!


Embracing Black (but not too much!)

I used to wear a lot of black (goth teenage stage)… then I stopped (hippy university stage)… then I wore almost all black and dark colours (embracing the norm of my Israeli neighbourhood which wasn’t really healthy)… then all bright colours (made aliyah)… and so the cycle continues.  My relationship with black has always been conflicted; it is the dress code of concerts in the music world, and I always wasn’t a fan of that – though it DOES work in terms of looking sophisticated and not distracting from the music.  I actually do find that it can look beautiful on me, as long as it’s not a norm, because it doesn’t always work well with my skin – I do find it very easy to slip into wearing it too much for my personality and features.  Sometimes when I wear it now, I almost feel rebellious.  ANYWAY – here is the tichel I wore!  I was going for sophisticated and simple:

And then I decided to experiment and add some more pins!  Not sure if I’m convinced by this idea… but I’m gonna work on tweaking it!  I was trying to go for a flower bouquet look… maybe it will work with differing styles of pins?  Let me know what you think!

You’ve seen this scarf before… but I’m obsessed!!

Hi ladies!!  Check out this new way to wrap your sari scarf!  It’s a normal tie, just with the lines on an angle… and then the pin is placed at the top of the head instead of the side like I’m used to!  Yay happy experiments!  What do you think?

And do y’all think it’s about time I got myself another sari scarf?  😛

Hope you’re all having a beautiful day!
Love, Andrea
