Scarf styling the Liberty way!

This is a delightful video from Liberty which shows a pretty and unique way to wear a scarf in your hair.  I really like this particular idea as it uses a scarf that is a common vintage size and shape and would suit any hairstyle.

I love scarves!

I love scarves, especially vintage silk ones.........They are so useful when the weather is a bit iffy, you know...... brilliant sunshine one minute, dark rumbling black rain clouds the next.....
I have used my scarf to drape over my shoulders, the front of my chest or back of my neck to protect it from getting sunburnt when I have forgotten to apply sunscreen....I often feel the benefit of it round my neck, tucked into my cardi or coat when things have turned chilly and drafty......I have used it properly as a headscarf 1950's style when it has suddenly rained and both of my umbrellas are in the car which is a mile away and yes, I know I may have looked like Princess Anne but at the time I didn't care :-)
I would like to use it to tie up my hair but although my hair is long it just hasn't got the umphh and va va voom in it to give it that fashionable mussed up style that looks great with a pretty scarf holding it all together.....Don't need a scarf for any of the above? Then just tie it to your handbag or thread it through the belt loops of your jeans.......

Feel inspired???.......Here are the latest additions to the website :-)
