I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: One of the things that I (Rachel) love about our weekly Wrapunzel challenges is how they encourage creativity and for women to step out of their comfort zones, all while having fun with wearing tichels (or hijabs, veils, etc)! Occasionally, we might find ourselves in circumstances where we have to be flexible with how we choose to wrap our heads. This can happen during Challenge of the Week when the color or theme chosen isn’t a personal favorite. Perhaps, our favorite scarf is in the wash or that perfect outfit we pictured beforehand just doesn’t look right with the scarves and accessories chosen. A travesty, for sure! 😉
One fangroup member, Justine, recently had a trying experience with wrapping and truly embraced her situation to its fullest! Take a moment to read about it below:
“On my recent tropical holiday to visit my parents, I didn’t bring any scarves. I had just started wrapping part time for fashion, and didn’t want to waste precious suitcase space for something frivolous.
But once I was there, I found myself yearning to wrap my head. My mom had a scarf in her closet and she let me borrow it. I have had fun finding all sorts of different ways to wear it. The distinctive ombre made for interesting opportunities! I also really enjoyed posting pictures on the Wrapunzel Fangroup page and getting so much positive feedback. Thanks for the love!”
Justine was gracious enough to share her daily creations with us and you won’t believe the number of different looks she achieved with just one scarf! Check them out below:
Talk about turning lemons into lemonade! How inspiring!!!
One of the Challenge of the Week ideas we’ve been been toying with for some time is creating multiple different looks with the same scarf, just like Justine has done here! Think of it as an extreme #onescarfchallenge! edit: Feel free to accessorize away and combine your choice with other scarves. Choosing just one and creating a few looks with it throughout the week can be the ultimate exercise in flexibility and I am so excited to give it a go! Something tells me this will be a good one…
