My hair was pin-curled under a scarf for a couple of days to achieve a great big fluff (which it did, which the moist weather destroyed).
I tied the scarf with a little extra twist to get some more of those slightly exotic vibes into the grey sogginess* of the season; making a huge layered bow on top. (It was also a nice way to add some Carmen Miranda flair to an inspiration trip to the home decor and furniture supermarkets of the far-away suburbs.**)
I wear a scarf like this one with a pair of high waisted slacks and a basic shirt or boat neck tee for a less dressed-up, less carnival-like feeling (not that there's anything wrong with that, but anyway).
*)Note: ranting about ice and freezing cold is over, I will be nagging about how wet, soggy and slippery it is from now.
**) Can't wait for the big renovation and MOVE, my new kitchen, bedroom tapestry, mint green smeg; our new home. But as said before, more on that later.
