At this time of year, Parisians are beginning to forgo “l’écharpe”, the heavier scarf they wear during the colder months, for “le foulard”, a scarf made from lighter material, such as silk.
Channel Your Inner Parisian; Wear a Scarf
The scarf is an integral part of the French wardrobe, worn by women and men alike. Learning how to wear one with panache like a French person is an art form – one that I plan to continue to investigate and share with you.
That’s why I have teamed up with a company called Green Scarf Boutique
for my Spring Giveaway Offer.
Qian Zhang is not Parisian but believes like I do that the scarf is an important accessory to any women’s wardrobe. She has built her business around sourcing the world’s most elegant and also affordable silk scarves. Qian’s mother, a woman of a certain age, started out in retail in Beijing China, and has been Qian’s mentor.
I have worn scarves most of my life to add flair to a blouse or suit jacket, or to dress up an outfit in the evening. As an on-air TV News Correspondent, wearing a scarf on camera became my trademark. Viewers often called me after the newscast to ask me where they could buy the scarf I was wearing.
My Spring Giveaway Offer
I loved Jian’s products so much that I purchased one of her scarves to give away to one of YOU in this new Offer.
It is 90 centimetre-square 100 percent silk pink and gray scarf with a French theme. I have asked Qian to model it for us, and she has also provided a short VIDEO to demonstrate a couple of ways to style the scarf. That video is available on my Facebook Page — see further down for link.
