I believe I can safely say that I have never ever posted a blog about fashion. Not because I don't like fashion, but because I don't know fashion. I am usually a year or two behind on the trends, because it often takes me a while to even become aware of them and then it takes even longer to adjust to the idea. So, about the time a trend has ceased to be a trend and is on its way out, I'm finally buying into it...which makes for great shopping at Goodwill!
I am bucking my own trend here, though, to "write" a fashion post. Sort of.
You see, I like scarves. I've always liked scarves. In fact, I may even LOVE scarves. They provide a wonderfully safe way to incorporate eye-popping color and prints in which I would otherwise not be caught dead. They also present an economical way to spice up a closet full of classic lines and neutral colors. But I have been eternally plagued by a dilemma: I don't know how to wear them! I mean, I DO know 1 or 2 ways but they are the old-fashioned, traditional, "going-to-the-office" looks. So I buy beautiful scarves, but they adorn my closet, not me.
But then last week! Ahhh...last week. T'was a life-changing week indeed...in terms of fashion, that is. My friend, Dana Hui, brought the following video to my attention and wah-lah!
Suddenly I can rock a scarf like nobody's business!
I thank you, Dana, and my poor neglected scarves thank you as they will finally see the light of day! This may well be the most useful YouTube video ever!
