  1. This looks sweet.

    Could you hear my cries yesterday morning?
    There’s a real Texas chill at the moment so I thought I’d wear a vintage silk scarf – you know, swirl it around a bit, tie a knot, do a drape thing the way you do et voila!
    Oh dear. Can you please start a scarf-tying academy?

  2. Gorgeous! I am so happy that I finally got to see your scarf tying skills in person. This is no blue screened special effect, folks. Deja really does tie a mean scarf!:-)

  3. So chic! Will you tell us which pattern this is? I’m assuming it’s an Hermes carre. Looks so good it makes me think I should ship one of mine off to Hermes and have them do the plisse.

  4. Wow, such a beautiful scarf. And I agree with Arabella, please do some videos showing how you tie the scarfs so beautifully. You always look so lovely.

  5. Arabella – thanks! I promise I’m working on getting some “how to” pics for some of my favorite scarf ties.

    Duchesse – yes, that’s what I love about the plissés; there’s almost an architectural quality to them that requires only the simplest of knots.

  6. LBR – ahh, you are too kind! It was delightful meeting you and I hope we can do so again soon.

    Sue – thank you! IMO scarves are such an easy way to get a fresh look out of the same old clothes.

  7. Kalee – thanks, I need to rope mon mari into being my photographer, I think!

    Leah – thank you and it was a pleasure meeting you! I look forward to reading your blog.

  8. Anon – I’ve noticed a lot more men wearing scarves these days and looking mighty fine.

    Moira – thank you! It was lovely to meet you too, and hope to see you again. I’ve been enjoying your Dog Art Today blog!
