Cat Chat episode 5: Scarfing

Share Button

My idea of accessorizing is earrings and hair ties I wrap around my wrist.

Suffice it to say, I’m no fashionista.

Which is why I asked Tanna Dang, owner of Eden In Love at Ward Warehouse, to give me some tips in the accessory department for this week’s Cat Chat.

Tanna showed me a quick and easy way to adorn any outfit — and stay warm at the same time: scarves.

I haven’t worn these seriously since my stint in Chicago. And I didn’t know what I was doing then!

Check out the different ways you, too, can wear a scarf — yes, even in Hawaii! — and post your own questions, suggestions and advice here. (By the way, you can get all the scarves featured in today’s episode at Tanna’s boutique.)

Enjoy!

Super Cat Chat episode. From the title, I thought for sure food was involved.

i love to scarf! it's how i get complimented on looking 'fashionable' (yes, that actual word) w/o shopping (ok, only twice). grab tank tops and camisoles while stocking up on cat litter at walmart and mix/match w/ a supply of scarves. i do love the vest tip.

I thought Cat's idea of accessorizing was Diet Coke in one hand, and nom noms in the other.....

Who would have thought you could wear scarfs in Hawaii? Who would have thought dudes could wear scarfs in Hawaii? Not that I'm gonna join the trend or anything. I do admit though, if I'm ever heading to colder climate, I just might rock a scarf because of this vid. Tre' chic! BTW, awsome to see Mrs. Dang become a successful business woman with 2 shops now.

It's amazing what you can do with a scarf. Who knew? :) I agree with Melissa, no need cover up.

here in San Francisco a scarf is survival gear. everybody wears them, year round. businessmen walking down Market St, wear wool scarves, neatly folded in the vent of their cashmere top coats. bums and winos sitting on Market St wear them like hoods. Peruvian woman on Market St sell felted ones on the corner, from folding tables, and use them to carry their babies, slung over their backs. the hipster messengers flying down Market St on their fixed gear bikes favor the silk Palestinian scarf. last year i had the brainstorm of bringing a lightweight scarf to Honolulu with me. i wear it to cover my neck when i'm out on the water. cause, im already a redneck. no sense in exacerbating the situation.

Dang, you beat me! I was going to do a scarf wrapping blog with @jlieu & @lenahanson . Then again, there were two specific styles of wrapping that I didn't see you cover. hee hee don't do it!

@Cat I don't drink coffee too.

@Cat @M So, you brew coffee just for the smell? Do you use cheap coffee and just throw it out, or does quality coffee make for a better aroma and smell?

Cat

@M I've heard good things about this coffee grinder. I don't drink coffee, but I brew a batch every day. Love the smell, hate the taste. Is that weird...?

@turkfontaine Turk, great comments. Here in Cleveland (as now with anywhere from 4 to 14 inches of snow on the ground) scraves are de rigeuer for two reasons: warmth and as a napkin to wipe burger drippings off one's chin. For that reason we prefer darker colors which do not show food stains as easily.
