A few weeks ago WomenClothingToday.com asked if I would like to review one of their hand-painted silk scarves. If you’ve followed my blog for a while you’ll know that I love fashion accessories. A colorful scarf, handbag, or shoes lend some flair to a simple outfit. Scarves are unique because they can also add a fun print to whatever you’re wearing, and I love how a carefully selected printed scarf can be worn with a printed dress to make the look even more interesting. So I agreed to try one of their scarves and chose one called “Midnight Poppy”.
According to their website each scarf is individually hand painted on high quality silk using eco-friendly dyes. I cannot vouch for the dyes, but the scarf is beautiful, and I was taken by the gentle colors and soft, luxurious fabric. It is a long rectangle, which is slightly unusual for me as I usually wear square scarves. I tied it around my neck over a black silk blouse and black blazer where it stayed without difficulty. It seems a rectangular silk scarf is very well-behaved, though it did flutter delightfully in the breeze.
There was one surprise when I first saw the scarf. In the photo it looked black, but in real life it is navy blue. This doesn’t bother me as navy is a softer color to wear near the face, but it would be prudent to check the colors of the scarf in the description before purchasing.
*Disclosure: The scarf was a gift, but all opinions and thoughts are my own. I was not paid to publish this review.
