Spreading You Wings: Shovava

One of the things that I think is important to know about me is that while I may be pushing 30, I am still very much in touch with my inner child. She is loud, opinionated, and, boy, does she like pretty things. Right now she is doing her best to convince me that it is absolutely imperative that we own one of the beautiful scarves from the Etsy shop Shovava. It’s becoming a problem because I know she isn’t going to be happy with just one.

Flowers, feathers, birds, so intricate and ethereal. I follow their Instagram, and I love, love, LOVE seeing their photo stories. If I don’t have one by December, it’ll probably be somewhere at the tippy top of my Christmas list.

If I Were a Rich Girl: Scarves by Helen Dealtry

I often play the game “Someday When I’m Rich and Famous…” making mental notes or Pinterest boards of all the things all I’d do/buy when I am finally raking in the dough and Andy can be a stay at home dad, taking the occasional consulting job when/if he wants. Along with some obscenely expensive shoes, I’ve added to the list these gorgeous scarves by Brooklyn based textile designer Helen Dealtry. Inspired by the style and shape of Egyptian jewelry, and printed onto 100% crepe de chine, this is the first collection the designer has created under her own name.

Each scarf is printed in Helen’s hometown of London and then finished by hand in Brooklyn. Scarves are available here. If you’re interested, check out Helen’s blog to see more of these textile masterpieces and to catch a glimpse of her design process.
