Wrapunzel Challenge: Simple Style!

Bannerfinal3

We’ve just wrapped up another Wrapunzel Challenge and this one really took us back to basics- #simplywrapunzel was all about wrapping just one scarf around your head, without the use of added accessories. Sounds boring, right? WRONG!  If there’s anything that this challenge taught us it’s that one scarf can be wrapped in a seemingly infinite amount of ways and that the possibilities truly are endless!

With so many elaborate styles of wrapping out there, it can be easy to focus on more intricate and involved ones- Styles with multiple scarves, sashes, pins, clips and everything in between. Sometimes, taking a step back can be so cathartic for the seasoned wrapper. After all, even a basic Regal Wrap can have you looking like a queen!

Thank you all SO much for your participation in #simplywrapunzel! Want to learn how to participate in our next challenge? Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post for instructions and the big reveal!

 


 

So, if you’ve made it this far, you must be curious about our next challenge, right? For our next theme, we’re revisiting a color, but it’s not as straightforward as some of our previous color challenges have been. Our next challenge will have us feeling blue… Not only blue, but shades of blue. How many different shades can you manage to include in the same look? We’d love to see! Dark blue? Check. Pastel blue? Check. Sky blue? Check! Whether you choose to wrap with one shade or many, we’re SO excited to see all of your creative wraps with this incredibly versatile color. Have fun, ladies!!!

“The Naomi Knot” Tutorial

Wowwwww what a response to the last post!  You all really wanted a tutorial, and I wanted to figure out new ways of doing this awesome Naomi Wrap… so here you go!

Sooooo what should we call it??  I have already thought of “The Naomi” but that probably won’t work because I have a feeling we will have many more wraps on here inspired by her!  Something with the word “Knots”?  But nothing “knotty” please :p

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!

One Scarf – Three Ways!

I am so happy with this scarf!  It’s light, colourful, and can be worn in so many ways!  Depending on how you fold it before wrapping, it creates a myriad of layers.  During my recent trip to my brother’s wedding (!) I didn’t pack enough scarves to wear during the week (I had tons of scarves from the new Wrapunzel Store, but not for myself… go figure).  However, I did pack this one and made sure to wear it with different wrapping techniques.  Here they are!

Way #1 – Regal Wrap with Hanging Tail and teal colour at the front:

Way #2 – All tucked in Regal Wrap and navy colour at the front with a turquoise sash added for fun! (and husband 😛 )

Way #3 – Simple Elegance with pink pattern at the front and flower pin!

And yes, this is one of the scarves we will be selling!  Now tell us, what are some new scarf discoveries you have made lately?
