First let's look at the design and the scarf itself, and then I've done some pics of the scarf in action:-
|Lovely pink tissue wrapped parcel!|
|A first glimpse at Sophia!|
|The whole design.|
|The designer label.|
If like me you love jewellery this is delightful -
I really want this brooch!!
|Here gorgeous pink roses are intertwined |
|Pearls,jet and turquoise get in on the act too!|
|A closer look at the weave. |
Being 70% wool and 30% silk, obviously it is
not as soft as cashmere, but I think this will wear
much better and you won't need to be as careful
as with cashmere which is so much more delicate.
Simply worn here: folded in 2 on the bias and
draped around the neck to give a casual look.
|Worn to the side and secured with MT Shawl ring.|
This will look great over a winter coat too!
|Here I folded the scarf on the square, like for a pleated |
look, wrapped it around my neck once and then
criss-crossed the ends through the MT Shawl Ring - I think
this makes a nice neat compact look and very warm!
Here worn in a long look still folded on the
square and I threaded one end through
the MT Shawl ring and the other end is slipped
through the one secured by the ring to
make the criss cross.
Just draped loose around the neck for a
simple look. Folded on the square.
A traditional shawl wrap/tied look (not really "me"!)
but it shows the shawl in a different way. The
edges of the scarf/shawl design show nicely and
this would even be nice with a LBD at an evening
event (if folded a bit better than I have done!)
|Cowboy works well!|
The Friendship Knot makes for a
slim line look.
A half bow using MT shawl ring - you
can make the bow as big as you like
to suit what you are wearing.
I used a Basic Fold here.
Here using Basic Fold with MT shawl
ring to make a bow - you can
wear it tight like this OR...
....pull out the loops to make a bow..OR...
...pull even further for a floppy bow look!
|Here I threaded the scarf through |
the ring vertically - Basic Fold
|One of my fave looks the equestrian works really |
well here with MT shawl ring and shows off the
colours of the scarf.
|The same look but a fuller length view.|
A variation on the half bow using it in
combination with the equestrian look.
This is a shorter way to wear the scarf
as it is quite long.
|The criss cross with ring - scarf |
folded on the bias.
Here I folded the scarf as narrow as I could
on the bias and threaded it through one of
my scarf fur collars for a really cosy way
to wear! A simple single knot secures it.
Worn with the ends hanging loose

I hope this post has been of interest and to see more of Saima's designs please visit her website www.saimamajid.co.uk I have really enjoyed reviewing something new in the scarf world and seeing how it would wear. It is always nice to see designers' work and hopefully give them a helping hand, so I was very honoured to be asked to review the scarf.
