More Wedding-Wear

I went to a lot of weddings this summer.  So now that wedding season is just about over (at least around here)- here's what I put together for another family wedding.  It's a bit quieter in the shiny front than many of my previous wedding choices, but brighter in actual colors.  The skirt I wore was a mixture of greens, which the accent scarf picked up just right.
 That's a dark pink pashmina, with a small light-green accent scarf.  Something about the roof of the semi-outdoor area where we took these made everything very pink.  I've already filtered these to make them less pink, if you can believe it...

A Twisty Crown at a Wedding

So I've been better about drafting some posts than putting them up.  And now that the holidays are starting to reach their close, I hope to be back to a regular posting schedule, finally- with texts, reflections, and all that jazz, along with "what I wore" style posts.  But first, you'll be working your way through a few wedding/festive coverings.  This one, and variations thereon, have been a shabbos, wedding, and yontif favorite for me, lately.

A while back, I showed some photos of a twisty crown, a dressy but not over-the-top style, good for folks who like a little height, but nothing too overwhelming.  Here's another time I used the same style, and produced something dressier.

 It's the same thing, with the only addition of a small headband in front of the twists.  It gives a little shine, and sets them off, so they're more visible.  Pair that with some makeup, jewelry, and dress clothes, and it made for excellent wedding-guest gear.

I just should remember to finally take the tag off that scarf...

A Basic Link

Here's a handy link to a video demonstrating how to use a pashmina scarf in place of a volumizer, for those of us who don't have one, from The Daily Tichel

I've yet to try her technique out (very similar to the one on Wrapunzel, although I'm too lazy to go find the right video to link to, right now).  I'll let you know how it works for me when I do.

Trouble With Comments

I'm having trouble with comments on this blog- somehow, it has swallowed up the comment function.  I'm trying to fix it, but I'm not hugely technically savvy.  Please be patient!
