Foulard de la semaine - une femme d'un certain âge

Foulard de la semaine

An attempt to emulate one of the “just threw it on” scarf looks I spotted on les Parisiennes: Ecole Portugaise d’Art Equestre” folded diagonally into a triangle, gathered up, wrapped twice around and tied.

    convincingly Parisienne! That is such a warmly sophisticated and wearable pink — I’m not a big fan of the equestrian Hermès scarves but in this colour, its subtle restraint has an appealing wit, especially in this fold that only hints at the full design.

    mater – merci bien! It helps that the colors and designs are subtle.

    I love pink and gray or pink and brown. This is such a soft lovely tie I’m retying the one I’m wearing right NOW!

    Love it! You look tres chic, in an ‘Not trying too hard, I’m just naturally fabulous’ way.

    Is this one of your purchases from Paris? What a nice color and goes well with your grey knit!

    Hey, isn’t it supposed to be back in the 100’s this week? Enjoy your lovely fall Parisian wear while you can. Soon you will be in bikinis and pareos!;-)

    Love the pink and gray together.

    ah, it must be nice to have a neck that can have a scarf wrapped around it twice… my big problem with scarves — my short squat neck, i love them, but they don’t love me. i particularly like this style — a nice alternative to a turtleneck!

    LBR – Gah. Yes, it’s supposed to warm up for several days this week. According to my we’re looking at low-to-mid 80’s. At least it cools down at night.

    Duchesse – thanks! Grey has become my favorite neutral.

    Sue – thank you! I still feel like a novice at achieving these looks compared to les Parisiennes though.

    Miss Janey – merci. I’m a recent convert to pink.

    madame suggia – that’s a high compliment indeed, thanks so much!

    bonnie ann – actually I can’t tolerate anything tight around my short neck; the scarf is actually wrapped quite loosely. You could probably to this or something similar.

    Deja Pseu: Second day in a row I’ve tried this one and really like it. Always fun to have a new tie, thank you.
