Outfit: Modern Romanticism



When Wolford sent me their multi-functional scarf to play with a lot of modern scarf-tying looks came to mind. The scarf comes with a little booklet showing you a few ways to get creative with your scarf, but as I played with mine in the mirror I kept coming back to a draped, almost cape-like shape. It felt very old world and romantic, so I couldn't resist pairing it with a dramatic vintage brooch and long-flowing gown. The shape and style of the look harkens to long-gone times (and makes me feel one step closer to being a Pre-Raphaelite muse), although the pineapple print keeps things pretty modern and light-hearted! This dress was clearly meant for summer, but I couldn't resist wearing it now and styled this way--with sensible tights and boots--it works for this season as well.

What a beautiful outfit! I love when an outfit can evoke such romanticism. It would be great to see a tutorial on how to drape a scarf like this. It is probably super simple, but I often have a hard time recreating scarf styles and this one is too wonderful to pass by.

This dress and cape combo is amazing! You look so gorgeous in this. I would have died if I found that brooch. Also your dress has pineapples and you are wearing the best boots, like yes.

Beautiful blog!
Lovin' it!
Cheers from Iceland!

P.S. Who do you get to take your photographs?

@ εïз Sahara Rós εïз, I take most of my own photographs--as you can see at the end of this post I state "photos by me." That means I took the photographs with a tripod and self-timer and remote. Whenever someone else helps me take photographs they are credited at the end of the post, but many photographs on my blog are by myself.
