Dear reader, I'm rash. My hand goes up to volunteer before I think things through. Before I know it I'm organising the next 'ginger cat bicycle safari' in Wimbledon. (Note for disclaimer purposes, I don't believe there is such a thing but if there was I'd be on the committee. ) So, (yes starting with so) my hand tapped volunteer on a private style group, normally run by a professional I might add, when said professional asked for help. The result is that this week I am styling America. OK, well about 1000 women across America and Canada. Ta daah . When I say 1000, there are 1000 members and 3 of us from Europe.
Wednesday's oufit concoction was black, burgundy and leopard print. I really love how the burgundy offsets leopard.
There are a couple of feelings associated with setting these oufits for "America". One being huge satisfaction in seeing the oufits as they are worn on the group's Facebook page. The other a strange feeling of looking in a mirror repeatedly (that's not satisfying, just to be clear. )
An unexpected satisfaction was that many copied how I tied my scarf. I find this one of my most used knots. It goes like this.
Wrap scarf completely around the neck once leaving both ends hanging down.
Do a knot at the front (like the start of a bow ). That should leave you with two long ends hanging down the front in the middle of your body rather than either side of your body.
Dear reader, have a go with burgundy and leopard print. This is your challenge of the week.
