A viola student said to me, “Miss Andrea? You should wear red… like… dark red. You would look really pretty in dark red!”
Well, when 9 year old violists give me fashion advice, I listen! 🙂
(Scroll down to the comments section of this post to see a very interesting discussion about hair covering and religion.)
I am very happy with the results of this wrap! This particular style is a Regal Wrap with Hanging Tails, except instead of using the pin to secure the ends, I used the purple tails to create a side ponytail.
It was also nice to discover that I had earrings with red, purple and turquoise in them… so my nails actually matched (somewhat)!
I was intruiged by Batsheva’s description of the retro “Rachel Imenu” style, so I decided to try doing a wrap that incorporated it into the style. She was right, I did feel a bit dated (who knew that scarf wrapping had eras/trends?) but I actually got a lot of nice comments throughout the day!
The colours are a little darker than what I usually go for, but with a bit of eyeliner I didn’t feel too washed out:
And the back of the wrap is one of my favourite ways to tie my bun area – the elegant double twist braid!
