A new shape in silk scarves, and how to tie them!
My friends at CASTANOHEL have been busy these last few months designing and launching their new line of luxury silk scarves.
Their original designs are manufactured in Italy, and are absolutely stunning. One of the first styles they rolled out are these long, double-sided scarves. If you love the look and feel of silk scarves, but sometimes find the classic squares challenging to tie, you are going to love these!
You can tie them just as would any rectangle scarf. Because the ends are cut on the diagonal, they drape beautifully. And being double-sided, they look good no matter how you arrange them.
How to tie long silk scarves
Here’s a little video I put together, with two quick and easy ties:
There are other styles too, and more coming soon. They do ship to the US, and I’ve found it’s pretty quick.
(BTW, a certain VIP is a fan …)
Daily luxuries, direct from France
I’ve been eagerly waiting to share the November “My Stylish French Box” with you. My Stylish French Box is a subscription box filled with uniquely French items, selected by Sharon Santoni of My French Country Home.
Sharon has once again put together a mix of gifts that are both useful and lovely. The items reflect the French ideal of elevating the everyday.
Let’s dive in, shall we?
I love the feel of a quality pen in hand, and one of my favorite items in this box was a pretty roller pen from Oberthur. Perfect to go with the fun stationary from Monsieur Papier.
I find cloth pouchettes a pretty and practical way to stay organized. And I often buy them as souvenirs and gifts when I travel. This one is from Maison Baluchon and is a perfect size to use for cosmetics or to corral tech accessories in your handbag. The lotion from Céline Escand is heavenly! Very rich (but not greasy) with a very light fragrance (that won’t fight with your perfume).
There’s a lipstick from Rouge Français, and this soft and warm cashmere shawl.
And if there’s a particular item you’re interested in, she also has many individual items (some from past boxes) in the MFCH Boutique, all from French brands.
Be sure to check out My French Country Home Magazine, available in both print and digital versions. It’s chock full of French lifestyle inspiration: recipes, decor, travel destinations, and more.
