It’s Fashion Flash Monday!

Fashion-Flash-logoThis week, Pam of Over 50 Feeling  40 is hosting Fashion Flash.  She  is  such an inspiring and positive   person I look forward to hearing what she is up to every week.  At fifty she realized that she had  ignored  both  her appearance and goals and decided to change the direction of her life.  She is now a well-known fashion blogger, a brand ambassador and a role model to woman  looking to make the second  50 years, the best  years.

Fashion Flash Book Review:  50 Ways to Wear a ScarfFashion Flash Book Review:  50 Ways to Wear A Scarf by Lauren Friedman

Not only do I love to  collect scarves, I love to collect  books that  show  how to tie my scarves.  50 Ways to Wear A Scarf is  my new favorite– not only for its clear directions  but its really lovely sketches make it a pleasure to read.   The author, Lauren Friedman  is a young uber talented illustrator that brings every outfit to life.

Each scarf tie has a an often iconic name.  The ” Audrey” is a perky little square that looks perfect  shown with a blue and white striped tee and red pants.   The “New York” uses a large flower print square  over a olive green jacket. I’ve seen this  scarf at  Fashion Week but could not figure how it is done.  Now I do.  I wore it all week and  it made a very cold spring so  much more bearable.   The “Infinity” scarf is simply perfect and my new favorite way to wear a long scarf.  By pairing a scarf with a totally wearable fashion illustration, its so  helped me choose the right type of scarf  for each outfit.

The illustrations in 50 Ways To Wear A Scarf are so wonderful I wish there  were more that reflected my  fashion  needs.  Ms Friedman is  very young and many and most  of the wonderful illustrations   feature  jeans,  mini skirt, shorts, and  tank tops. But for  what does  work for those of us  over 40, this little book is a treasure.
