Dark Red Viola

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! 🙂

Fancy Side Ponytail

(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)!

The “Rachel Imenu”

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!
