I was thrilled with the result, and was ready to model and photograph it before mailing it out. (The entire reasoning behind building this collection on preorders is that I can’t afford (nor have room) to make up things and hope they sell.) So I spread it in front of me…
…and I realized I didn’t have the faintest idea how you’re supposed to wear a silk scarf. A square silk scarf, to be specific. Actually, a square cotton silk scarf, but the problem was the square bit. I have plenty of long, mostly knit and crochet, scarves that I can do super crazy things with (that I also learned on the Internet), but I’m not a silk scarf person — I wear scarves to keep warm and silk has always felt weirdly in between — too warm and too cool at the same time.
I have to say, though, after researching it? I could be into silk scarves as neckties. Every other way I included here, though, is just for show.
5 Ways to Wear A Silk Scarf — ft. “Adrift” from LHP Collection
Cotton silk from Spoonflower printed with Adrift, a photograph I took of an autumn leaf floating on a fountain on the way up to my library. Handmade with a hand-rolled hem. Approx. 34″ x 40″ in size. Not yet available for sale — unless, of course, you reach out to me personally. Pre-order price is $75 for cotton silk and $110 for silk crêpe de chine.
In these photos, I wore it with a light gray long-sleeve top from C&A and my everyday black glasses from Zennioptical.
