Pinstripes and Sheer Wool

I visited Gabrielle in Palos Verdes, where she runs the 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.
