Accessory Assistance

Some women are born to accessorize. They always grab the right earrings, the right handbag, the right hat. I don’t even know where my jewelry is these days, I don’t own a belt (seriously), and I tend to wear whatever shoes are closest to the front door. A couple of years ago, though, I learned a neat trick when I traveled to Madrid. The Madrileñas all seemed to rely on one accessory to tie their (very polished) look together, a scarf! I bought one there, looked fabulous for a week, but returned home, tucked it in a drawer, and promptly forgot about it. Well, when the folks at Daily Grommet shared these Brooke Stanton scarves, I remembered. They’re hand-died silk, and come in a rainbow of colors. So in theory they could become your signature accessory to accompany any look. Which is the perfect remedy for those of us born without the accessorizing gene. Of course, if you ARE a born accessorizer, you probably aren’t even reading this. You’ve already got one in your shopping cart, and you can’t wait to get it because you’ve got just the right thing to wear it with. Where do you fall on the accessorizing aptitude scale? Do you have a signature look?

    Do you have a signature style? Or do you NEED fashion help? Hope we can swap tips here!

    The craftsmanship in these scarves is truly special, and the colors are vivid. I love that these hand dyed, silk scarves are so light and soft -- quite a nice alternative to some of the heavier scarves out there. Joanne, thanks for showing us how to wear them -- often, that's over half the battle when I want to try a new accessory!

    My signature accessory was always a fun and different watch. Ha! Cell phones have made watch wearing obsolete. I have not picked up a new signature look, maybe this should be it! People who wear scarves always look so worldly and confident!

    I love the image of her dying the scarves in her basement...in my mind they are big black cauldrons and she has a big stick and sprinkles in diamond dust as she stirs...must be the season getting to me!! I bet it's a beautiful sight when they are all hanging to dry.

    Help! I need a scarf. I'm in New York to give a venture capital presentation to a bunch of people and my outfit is way too dull and monochrome. Bad packing job.

    I can't believe I missed it! I've seen these gorgeous scarfs in person and the photos don't do them justice. I really wanted to order one! They are dressy enough for evening and casual enough for daytime...even jeans.

    I'm more in line with the heavier scarves because I do wear them for fashion and warmth. I might consider as a gift, but will think about it. It's probably me, but although the colors are pretty, the pattern seems a bit matronly to me....just my opinion. I did appreciate the tutorial on how to wear. Thanks

    How did Joanne do that last scarf tying trick?

    Trick or treat! See you at Helen's tonight

    Joanne's trick at the end....she just did the Euro version (the go back first, cross behind your neck, and then pull the ends forward over your shoulders). Then she simply tucked the two ends that were hanging down in around her neck. She wove it in once or twice to use up the length on each side.

    WHY is it that you are advertising the wonderful BLUE scarf on your video ... and then it isn't available to order??????

    @Christie Sweetland: Thank you for your feedback. I will check into the availability of the blue and get back to you. Sometimes the assortment will change from the time we first introduce a Grommet. This one was one of our first Grommets introduced almost two years ago!

    I have just spent hours on the internet looking for the perfect gift. I just found it --- found it in your video but not in the options! I've fallen in love with the scarf of dark transparentish background color and teal opaque leaves. How do I get it? It is lovely.

    Hello,

    I have a question regarding the cost difference. I definitely think these are branded wonderful scarves. But I came across brooke stanton scarves on a website - Etsy, where they all cost $28, against $38 as listed out here. I just wanted to know why is there a cost difference. I really don't mind paying extra for a good branded product, provided they are original branded products. Can you please advise me on this one, as far as the authenticity and the quality of the product is concerned.

    Thank you,

    Kal
