[WEAR] SCARFSHOP // COLORBLOCKS & RANDOM DYE SCARF COLLECTIONS

Today SCARFSHOP is celebrating their 1 year anniversary! (Happy Anniversary SCARFSHOP!) I own eight scarves hand dyed by Martha W McQuade, the designer behind SCARFSHOP. I can attest to their quality and beauty and to the fact that one can never have too many SCARFSHOP scarves! In fact I think they are the best gift to give, I even bought one for Appah for last year.

I am thrilled about two new lines that SCARFSHOP is introducing today--COLORBLOCKS and RANDOM DYE. The COLORBLOCKS collection are silk/cotton scarves inspired by modernist color blocked paintings from the 50s and 60s. The watercolor effect is achieved by a special direct dye method. 

I am having a hard time picking a favorite but I think the white/grey is right up my alley.

For those of you who follow Martha's work you know she is often inspired by the texture and colors in her natural environment which is reflected in her work.

I love the size of the COLORBLOCKS scarves which allows it to be worn in so many different ways.

I also love the new RANDOM DYE collection. The RANDOM DYE scarves are made from the original airy cotton but each with a unique random dye pattern. Each pattern develops over several weeks as a result of dyeing solid scarves. 

Now I think the hardest part is choosing which scarves to buy for myself and for friends and family!

[WEAR] OLI + ME

{Photographs by Jeana Sohn for Oli + Me}

I adore the simple and timeless designs of Oli + Me. I wear my set of whisper rings almost every day and I have my eye on many of their new designs like the cuff ring, beaded crown ring and slim cuffs. I love how you the pieces are so delicate making it easy to layer and mix and match.

[EAT] MR. PANNY // KOREA

{Photographs by Sally J Shim} 

My favorite thing about Korea is the food (of course). When we were visiting last March my friend brought me some of these cute little Mr. Panny Hot Cakes from The Pan. In Busan you can buy these in the food area in Shinsegae (the largest department store in the world). The treats come in a cute box that slides out to reveal vanilla and/or chocolate hot cakes. The box also contains a sweet dipping syrup. I love cute and sweet treats!
