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.

Modelling the Pink Silk Scarf Giveaway

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.

    Loved your blog this morning. I have been wearing scarves for years and was never quite able to get the look that Parisienne women do!

    • Diana Bishop on April 14, 2019 at 8:39 am

      Hi Ann,

      I know. I feel the same way. I am planning to investigate that more fully in Paris! Don’t forget to forward the blog to a friend, and you and they will be entered in the draw to win! Thanks so much Ann!

    Great blog. I have always stayed away from wearing scarves. I never know how to wear them properly. I felt I was too small and more of a box shape 🙁 never thought I could wear one. We shall see, I would love to know how to wear one for my figure.

    • Diana Bishop on April 14, 2019 at 5:39 pm

      Hi Tamara,
      I get it. I think it is all in the tying of the scarf and that does depend on the person. Some of Paris friends are not tall but they can still wear a scarf that makes them look so chic! Don’t worry, I will be looking into this with more interest and be writing about it! Thanks for the comment. Diana

    Great idea Diana
    The scarf in my wardrobe accents the outfit. I always feel “dressed “ when wearing a scarf.

    • Diana Bishop on April 15, 2019 at 11:56 am

      Thanks for comment Catherine! Me too.
      Do you have ONE friend that you can send who might want to subscribe to my blog? If so, that would enter you and that friend in the draw to win the beautiful give-away Spring Scarf!

    Hello Diana!

    I am also a woman of a certain age who just got back from Paris a week ago.
    I just subscribed to your blog and hope that automatically enters me into the draw since I love the scarf, and well, just about anything that reminds me of Paris. I wish I’d read your blog about Fred’s cafe since I was in that area.

    I really love how that conversation led you to your connection.
    I look forward to reading more of your entries,

    (J’ai deux amour: mon pays et Paris)

      Dina — Hi. Thank you so much for subscribing to my blog. And yes indeed, you are now entered to win the silk scarf.
      How was your trip to Paris? And yes, next time, you must go and visit my new friend Fred at her restaurant Coup Du Torchon! We all look forward to any future comments you might have for us. Diana
