What’s your finishing touch?
When it comes to getting going-out-ready, do you have one particular piece you see as your finishing touch? ‘Tis the season to be jolly, after all. Time to deck the halls.
This year I have added one to my wardrobe.
I have been skirting around the edges with this particular “finishing” touch for a while. Last year I admired a faux fur accessory my daughter wore frequently. It was a wrap scarf in a double band of colour and when she added it to the neckline of her coats and jackets it immediately transformed them into something really special; that small touch, big impact addition.
Yes, she does look great in pretty much everything but this ‘finishing touch’ did make a difference. I am a little late to the party, it has only taken me a year to emulate her faux fabulousness, but better late than never. Right?
“Don’t get your tinsel in a tangle.” Don’t you love this?
I don’t know about you but at this time of year my tinsel can well and truly be in a tangle. The idea is to stress less and enjoy more, I think we all know that, but sometimes we lose the memo.
That’s where an easy accessory, a finishing touch can take the pain out of the whole “what to wear” question. Dressing up with a striking faux scarf or wrap can solve the problem pronto.
Have you thought of the faux fur scarf as a gift for your girlfriends?
I know mine will love one; it’s individual, unusual and something personal.
It’s the thought that counts ;) xv
