Four-Strand Braid Rainbow!

This is one of my favourite outfits that I wore in Israel… the dress allows for so many tichel colour combinations!  This 4-strand braid always makes me so happy!!

… walking down the back streets in the neighbourhood of Geula:

And standing on the hill where my husband and I got married!  You can see the wall of the old city behind… such a holy place!

In these photos I’m wearing four 2 in 1s – I was out all day in the boiling heat and stayed quite cool!  I would, however, if I wanted it to be cooler, choose a style without so much hanging tail on the side… but it was super fun in the breeze!

Shabbat shalom, world!  (And Shavua Tov to those of you already in Shabbat that will see this afterward!)
Love, Andrea

Rivka Malka’s Funktastic Outfit!

Rivka Malka came over today to plan for our upcoming workshops/shows and I could not get over how awesome her outfit was!  Especially on this rainy day!  “What shows?” you may be asking;  well, we have 7 (maybe even 8!) planned between now and June 8th… craziness!  My next post will be giving those dates and places to you because you’ve asked, so sit tight, they’re acomin’!  ANYWAY, here’s what RM had to say about what she was wearing today:

“A cropped jean jacket is a perfect coverup for a shell that you might otherwise not feel comfortable wearing on its own!  I just got this one and I know it’s going to be a joy to wear this summer!  It really brings everything together!  And whomever said you can’t wear patterned tichels with patterned skirts?!  Just make sure that the color families are complimentary!”

And here is what she had to say about her fantastic tichel:  “I really think the dandelion joy is the most underrated tichel.  I wear mine constantly [Andrea’s note: she really does!] and it somehow manages to do what both a flowered and geometric scarf can do, without really falling into either category!  It has so many colors that you can choose to bring out – I chose the pink today – and its movement and lightness is perfect for the summer.  I can’t get enough!”

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how awesome this woman is?!  Seriously… in awe!  Enjoy, y’all!!

A Happy ‘Mismatched’ Accident!

My outfit today is a bit of an enigma; I don’t remember how it actually materialized.  I started off with my brown stretch pashmina tichel, a wrap skirt and a mint shirt, but between taking photos, getting cold (hence the sweater and scarf around my neck), and adding an extra sash scarf on my head, I ended up feeling VERY mismatched.  And do you know what’s even more mysterious?  I have barely left my house today (yet), and have already received glowing compliments from the many people that have come over!  I was like, “really”?!  But the women commenting are very stylish, so I decided to believe them!  So I’m going to go out like this!  I guess it does all look pretty funky!

Here’s my tichel:

And here is the awesome mismatched yet somehow working outfit!  My skirt is from Israel when I went there for the first time!  I remember being so hesitant to buy it because it ‘wasn’t my style’… and now it’s one of the most worn skirts in my wardrobe!

Signature Colours!

So in case y’all haven’t heard yet, a Wrapunzel Store will be opening soon!  Your demands have been heard – yay!  For now, the blog and the store are being kept separate (most of you requested this) but since Rivka Malka‘s and my life right now is revolving around setting this baby up, many of my wraps are done using our new scarves!

Tichels are generally a hit and miss … and since we will only sell what we wear ourselves, (and for a price we would pay – this one is a toughie!) searching for perfect scarves has been quite an adventure!  Recently one particular scarf arrived which made us gasp in shock and excitement because the colours were simply EPIC!  I wore it yesterday and couldn’t wait to post it!

It’s a one scarf wonder!  What do you think?

We also just sent one of these out to the lucky winner of our recent giveaway.  I can’t wait to see what she does with it!

It’s like, all of my favourite colours at once!  And this wrap was so easy to put together (did it without a mirror in much haste!)  Enjoy!

Wedding Wow!

MAZAL TOV MY BROTHER GOT MARRIED YESTERDAY!!  (Well, two days ago if you don’t go by the Jewish definition of day which starts at sundown.)

Yes, his wife is already lined up to be a Lady Wrap Star!

Here are some unofficial photos what I wore!  Aqua is the bride’s favourite colour 🙂

Classic Layered Ponytail Tutorial!

Can anyone come up with a better name for this wrap??  I’m not a fan of the one I came up with above…

Here is the tutorial that you have all been waiting for!  This particular wrap is a match makers dream!  I know it’s sometimes hard to match tichels… but keep trying and don’t be afraid to incorporate something new into your wrap!

Wrapunzel Ladies do the “Zig-Zag Criss-Cross”!

Wow!  Hello stunning colour combinations!  Check out all the different looks you can get from this wrap – all created by the ladies of Wrapunzel!  Great technique, girls!!  (Click on the photos to see them up close!)

(Yep, I stuck myself in there as well because I wanted to join the party!)
I have to mention that over Shabbat I met a woman for the first time lo and behold she was rocking the zig-zag criss-cross!  What a treat and a bit of a surreal too!  I am so proud of you all!  Thank you everyone for your submissions and keep up the awesome work!  (And yes, you can still send in photos and I will add them to this post.)  Yay wrapping sisterhood solidarity!
