Fall Wrapups

I am still in my honeymoon phase with fall. The weather is getting colder but it’s not unbearable by any means – yet. It merely nudges me towards cozier, cushier fashion accessories. Like these wraps and shawls that caught my attention recently…

I’m not sure if I would prefer to wear this sculptural Rose Scarf with a coat or with an evening gown. It would probably work well with both… Jenne Giles uses the most ancient of fabric techniques to craft her sumptuous Rose Scarves from Merino wool, Tussah silk, and silk chiffon. Here are more pieces from the artist. Vavavoom for winter.
I’ve already established, way more times than you care to know, how much I enjoy convertible (any)things, clothing included. By now, all us have pretty much run across all sorts of variations of this – convertible -  wrap. But ANGgelRoX‘s version is perhaps the most versatile and most convertible I have seen. It’s a skirt, a dress, a shrug, a cape, a jacket… Made of super soft bamboo jersey and available in perfect passe-partout (go anywhere in français) colors. See all the videos on how to wear the ANGgelRoX’s wrap here.
This little faux cashmere cable-knit (oh I hate to call it this…) poncho may look inoffensive, but it’s actually quite clever. It can be worn in a variety of ways (here’s the video to demo that though I’m already thinking of other ways). I also like that it buttons because sometimes it’s just plainly annoying to have the scarf slip from our shoulder. At $60, the “feels like cashmere without the cashmere price” makes it a great gift idea too.
I love this chunky loop scarf called the Artic Snuggler Infinity Cowl by its designer Nina Ramone. Love it because it screams cozy and also because it is, as you can see, versatile. Uh, I meant, convertible. Wear it as a capelet, as a hood, looped or long, doesn’t matter, you’ll just look oh-so-stylish in a cool-I-don’t-give-a-damn way. Which considerably adds to its appeal.
A fab way to add color to the ominous and omnipresent black and greys that people insist on wearing all winter. As if this helps thwart the winter blahs in any way… Better start on the right foot, with color. And lots of it. Moksha Fine Wovens are a kaleidoscopic way to do that. The Moksha manufacturing facilities are located in the north of India where they weave and finish their splendid fabrics made of top quality Australian Fine Merino, Mongolian Cashmere, Chinese Silk, Indian Mercerized Cotton and Fine Linen. Their shawls and scarves are splendid, but check out their coats too. I’m pretty sure I want the Doris coat.

Stay warm AND bright out there!
