In About Scarves, Fashion Scarves, Get the Look, Women's Scarves on December 29, 2010 at 11:21 pm

We have decided that Wednesday is the best day of the week to look for and present you with the best types of scarves and pashmina shawls for all of you gorgeous fashionistas out there! Since this is the first post from what we hope to be a successful series of Wednesday ScarfDay blog posts, we’ll present you with the latest addition to our scarves collections, the fishnet scarf!

We are so excited about the new fishnet fringed scarves because they are the perfect accessory to dress up any outfit, from an office look (if you opt for a neutral color such as gray) to a special night on the town. The lightweight fabric is perfect for all year round: light enough for spring and summer and perfect for when you need a little extra warmth.

The fishnet fringed scarves are available in 5 eye-catching colors: red, cherry, gray, lilac and plum. We’ll present you with three of them and you can check out the rest here.

Effortless Elegance: The Ruffle Scarf

In Fashion Scarves, Get the Look, Women's Scarves on December 16, 2010 at 1:20 pm

Women often find themselves having difficulties in finding the perfect accessories. For example, every woman knows that when you’re having doubts about what to wear for a party, romantic dinner or special event, you resort to the famous little black dress and you’re set to go.  But how about accessorizing that LBD? Sure, you can opt for jewelry, but isn’t that what everybody else does? We have a better, less expensive and way more creative suggestion:  the ruffle scarf.

Why opt for a ruffle scarf?

It is not only a stylish and affordable accessory, but it is also the perfect way to dress up a little black dress by adding that much needed touch of color. Pair your LBD with a radiant, satin ruffle scarf for effortless elegance. Not to mention all the compliments you’ll be getting!

We’ll present you with two elegant LBD’s and two lovely ruffle scarves you can use to dress them up. No jewelry needed!

Look No.1: Let the ruffle scarf do the talking!

Take a classic, sleeveless, little black dress. Pair the dress with a light pink ruffle scarf to add a touch of color, put on a pair of sexy heels and your party look is complete!

Bea Dress by Motel, £20.00 from TopShopLight Pink ruffle scarf $29.95 from La Purse

Steve Madden “Partyy” Pump $99.00 from dillards.com

Look No. 2:  Dress up your embellished LBD

We love this little black dress with adjustable straps and embellished bustier detail; it’s a modern rendition of the classic little black dress!  The embellishments are gorgeous and they would be beautifully complimented by a gorgeous ruffle scarf in a matching color.

Constance Dress by Motel £30.00 from TopShop

Ruffle Scarf Ginger $29.95 from LaPurse

Michael Antonio Keme Golden Pumps $59.00 from PIPERLIME

Hope you have enjoyed our effortless elegance post! Now tell us: how do you dress up your little black dress?
