Naomi Rose: “The Duchess” Wrap Tutorial!

duchess

Hi everybody! I was playing with Andrea’s latest tutorial for the Wrapunzel Veil (don’t miss it!!) and came up with this variation, which looks so regal. Wear it somewhere special – a wedding, the Renaissance festival, a birthday dinner. You’ll feel incredibly feminine – one thing I love about this wrap is how much it looks and feels like luxurious long hair.

This was my first attempt, in my bathroom (land of tichel experimentation):

And here’s an awesome contrasting version I did over Shabbat:

To do this wrap, you’ll need a few things:
A large, rectangular scarf – the bigger the better (I used Shiny-liciouses in various colors for all of these photos)
-A square scarf, triangular scarf, or sash (In the three versions pictured here, you can see a Shadowbright Sash,Silky Square, and a Dreamy Lace).
-A pretty tichel pin (I used a Sunblossom Pin)
-A safety pin or small, easily hide-able brooch (you won’t see this in the end result).
You can achieve a bunch of different effects by varying the types of scarves and pin that you use for this! Here’s how to do it:

 

What About my Bling Bling Bling?

BLING3

Wow, wow, WOW! If sheer volume of submissions is any indication, Wrapunzel ladies sure do like bling! We had so much fun last week experimenting with shiny accessories and blingy scarves, and have even got the photos to prove it!

If you need inspiration on how to wear tichel pins, clips or headbands, check out the incredible gallery below! Also, don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of this post to learn our theme for next week’s challenge!

Bonus: Somewhere within this collage is a chicken donning bling! Can you find the hidden fowl?

 

Our theme for this week is one that many Wrapunzelistas find challenging. A style that we might get more questions about than any other! Our hope for those of you who find it challenging, is that this week will inspire you to think out of the box and try something new! Check out the reveal video below:

Layered Artsy Side Swoop!

#wrapunzeledinbrown

 

Here is a look that I’ve been having a lot of fun with lately! It’s formal, dramatic and fun, and is an excellent tie for pashminas with fancy borders (Especially the Shine On, seen here)! Adding a 2-in-1 and Shiny-licious to the mix gives a nice variety of texture and added interest. My favorite part of this style, though, is the unique “side swoop,” which can give the wearer the feeling of hair, without hanging tails!

*Please note that this style requires the use of pins and is not for the faint of heart! It is definitely more suited to more experienced wrappers and those who don’t mind the wearing the weight of multiple scarves.

 

 

You might recognize this version from our Most Popular Tichels video!

 

After many requests, I was finally able to film a tutorial, so without further ado, may I present to you the Layered Artsy Side Swoop!

 

“The Malka” Tshirt and Shimmery Together!

We’ve been inundated with requests for a tutorial on this gorgeous tichel style that Malka modeled for us!  It combines a Favorite T-Shirt tichel with a Shimmery… aka it looks fancy but can also feel more casual depending on what you pair it with and what colors you choose!

Here is the version I came up with for the tutorial!  Same thing, different colors!

So this morning I made a tutorial!  You’ll have to excuse the unstable screen (cue computer on music stand and adorable baby boy grabbing it).  Enjoy!

Naomi Rose: Bronze and Turquoise

IMG_3520

Hi everybody!

I feel like it’s been AGES since I’ve made an outfit post, so I’m overdue!
Lately I’ve been inspired by combinations of a metallic tone (gold, silver, bronze) and a jewel tone (green, turquoise, dark red, purple, etc.). It reminds me of a gem in a setting, and I’ve found that almost ANY combination of colors from these two categories looks fantastic!

Today I wore a bronze Shiny-licious, with a teal and turquoise 2in1 tied in a Liezl, one of my favorite fancy ties. When I wear three or more colors I often stay pretty match-y so I paired the tichel with similar flowy stretchy clothes (my skirt was brown, even though it looks super dark in the photo for some reason!).

 

Lately I do most of my Wrapunzel work from my home or my fave coffee shop, so one thing you will NOT often see is me this dressed up at 8am on a Monday! But this morning was my friend Talya’s bris for her new baby boy, and it’s a gorgeous chilly morning with nice fat snowflakes falling, so it was just the time for a special wrap.

Have you tried a jewel tone + metallic tone wrap? Give it a go, I bet you’ll love it as much as I do!

#wrapunzelcomforted (and next week’s challenge)

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth,
for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire:
it is the time for home.”
– Edith Sitwell

 What do you think of when you hear the word “comfort”? Is it the process of easing grief or restoring a sense of well-being? Consoling, perhaps? Or more of the physical, like wearing your most comfortable pair of slippers, relaxing in a reclining chair or wrapping your head in your most worn scarf?

No matter what your own personal definition might entail, I think we all can agree that comfort is a feeling and with this week’s Challenge of the Week, we’ve seen more interpretations of that feeling than ever before! Turbans, tails, braids and buns… the diversity of these tichels seem to match the diversity of the women themselves, each a reflection of our own individual definitions of comft!

Check out the collage below to see some of the ways that women have wrapped their heads in comfort and be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to learn our theme for next week’s challenge!

The title for our next Challenge of the Week is inspired by hip hop culture! For those of you who are fans, Jay Z and Jermaine Dupri coined the phrase, but in the years since, it has become well known, even outside of this music genre. Think you have it figured out? Watch the reveal video below to find out!
