MaiTai Collection in action #9

It's been only a few months since the last collage, but I've received so many beautiful contributions since, that I'm thrilled to present the 9th MaiTai Collection in action collage today!

A big thank you to Carol, Elizabeth M, Johanna, Julie of, Julie, Kate, lanit, Lisa, Macs of 'Macs in the city', Maedi, Manuela, Marla in the OC, Monica and TuuMa for sharing your fabulous pictures, looks and ideas!

Manuela with a 'Charmes des Plages Normandes' 90 carré in a criss-cross bow knot, tied with a Classique scarf ring in Grande. Maedi with a 'Fleurs et Papillons de Tissus' 90 Carré, tied with a black horn Anneau Infinity in a slip knot.

TuuMa's 'Chasse a Vol' 90 carré, folded to emphasize the edge: fold your scarf into a triangle, and then into a long strip (fold from the longest edge towards the tip). Wind once around the neck, and secure loosely with a  Shawl ring.

  5. Dear Maitai, thank you for including me! I really do love my scarf rings. I haven't worn a scarf for ages as it is so hot but I am looking forward to wheeling one out. I did buy a 70 carre in October with a sort of circus print…As always I really enjoy seeing how all these gorgeous women around the world accessorise. Always fascinating xxx

  6. All you lovely ladies are looking so chic and beautiful!
    Simone xx

  7. Chin chin to all! Everyone looks wonderful. Merci MT.
    XO, TuuMa

  8. Totally agree with Trudye: Tai is indeed a very good teacher. I know I've stepped up my game since I began following this lovely blog. It is always so much fun to see how other women wear their scarves. Thank you dear MT for all your inspiration. And for bringing wonderful, useful goodies to us! I love how you positioned me next to Julie in the big collage! Julie you are wearing one of my all time favorite combos: red and leopard! Love it! Maedi: you have a really joyous smile--the best accessory ever; Macs: so chic--love the way you tied your mousse.

    1. Dear Marla, I agree MaiTai is a wonderful teacher - I have so much improved my style since following this blog. My "target style" resembles yours so much and therefore you are such a good inspiration to me...except I am never that successful in reaching my target :))). Oh, how yellow Carre Kantha is beautiful in your ensemble. I must continue my learning seems that talent has helped to many learners, however, I still must work hard :)))
      Please, continue with the future contributions.
      Compliments to all other dear ladies as well - you are all beautiful in your styles, with your scarves and outfits.

    2. Lea -- Thank you so much for your lovely compliment. I am extremely flattered – especially since I am considering offering my skills as a stylist to ladies in coastal Orange County. If you are, by chance, in this area (or Silicon Valley, where I often visit) I would be pleased to assist you. Re: my golden yellow Carre Kantha – I don’t wear it often and it had lived with me a while before I realized how well it worked with that blouse. : > ) Looking forward to seeing some of your outfits in the next collage! BTW I do apologize for the late response. Hope you see this note.

    3. Marla --- sorry, I am late with my response too; hope you will be back once upon time to read it.
      Oh, how much I would like to participate in your courses! Namely, I live in Europe, therefore I am sorry I cannot attend them :(
      Anyhow, you have all my support for the courses - you have much to offer! I so much like seeing nice "harmonies in ensembles", it is an art. My cupboard is full of clothes and still much think, think about combining the pieces into an outfit.
      MaiTai's and your outfits are always so harmonius, I always have a feeling you always know what to wear and how...what a great skill I would like to share!
      Wish you all the best in your courses. I hope our dear MaiTai would enable posting an info about your courses/advices, if possibly available online in the future.
      Best, Lea
