Wrap-It Wednesday

Howdy Hon,

Welcome to my little inspiration for those of us who love or are interested in wrapping our hair.  Whatever you reason, religion, fashion or just for fun.  This is where I share some of my results of just playing around with my scarves and pins until I find something that I like.   I hope you enjoy this little episode and I hope you can find inspiration in this series of posts.  

Since it's more about inspiring others to just play with their scarves I won't post a tutorial.  However, if you see a look that you would like to recreate just post on that post and I'll be happy to do a short tutorial showing you how I accomplished that look.

This beautiful geometric hijab is from Halimah Hijabs.  Her costumer service skills are excellent and the quality of her scarves are great.  I have not any problems with fading  or bleeding onto other items in the wash.  And the weight is great, especially when mixing them with an already heavy pashmina.    It was out of my comfort zone to order such a bold hijab for wrapping.  Did you notice the pop of lime green in some of the triangles and did I mentioned it had little tassels on the edges, LIME GREEN.  It was so much fun to wear this one!  Generally I had only used solid colors and tichels for wrapping.  I decided to step out there and try some some of the gorgeous scarves that were flashing across my screen.  Anddddd, I had a coupon code for Halimah Hijabs, courtesy of Nadira037 (I did a review on her sheet maxi skirt, if you haven't seen it look it up under Marvelous Monday).  So I ordered several hijabs.  I can't express to you how much I have enjoyed playing with my solids AND designed scarves, together.  This particular look was even more out of my comfort zone because the skirt was chevron and the scarf was geometric, with the little lime green tassels.

I felt so free and sassy that day, mixing patterns.  So here is this week's favorite:

There you have it.  Let me know what you think.  See you in the next post.

Love and Shimmies,
