Artists' Studio Galleries at the Palos Verdes Art Center. The Artists' Studio sells the work of artists, artisans and craftspeople who live and work on the Palos Verdes Penninsula. Gabrielle has an especial passion for dramatic art-to-wear pieces that she features at the gallery and in the Wearable Expressions shows she organizes so I was surprised that she was attracted to this very subdued scarf. It's made of a very soft charcoal pinstriped wool suiting fabric backed with the sheer, gauzy wool I've been using a lot of lately. But it doesn't take bright colors or fancy trims to create drama. It's all about the way you wear it and the personality that you express. And Gabrielle has a lot of personality, so this dark and subdued scarf is just enough.

here. Now we have handsome Henri putting a sporty spin on the same scarf. Henri has good taste, as you can see at his culture blog.

The Shield? I found some vintage wool in the same shade of yellow as the little shields scattered across the midnight blue silk I used for that scarf. So now we have Tamara wearing The Shield with a yellow wool backing, instead of black. Tamara cuts hair at Clark Nova Salon, where I took this picture. Check out her hair artistry here.
