Shop Local This Christmas

Thursday, 5 December 2013
When a well-intentioned friend suggested we camp outside a "new" multinational company this morning (hours before official opening for a paltry 10% discount) we got thinking about the real value of shopping small and local versus...well, the huge companies that many of us know and, let's be honest, love.

Although this is a very US-centric post, we can't help but grimace, nod and agree with many of the points.



So this Christmas, please think big and shop small. Your local community, families and businesses depend upon it.

 Get the Look with Lightweight Scarves by Jessica T

We can't get enough of this look at Jessica T HQ! Even though we tend to be a little on the vertically challenged side, we personally love the cape look that longer scarves create, especially when the lightweight fabric flows as you walk. It's like having your own personal wind machine! 

Half the fun, of course, is experimenting with different size and style scarves and seeing what works for you and your wardrobe.

We used the Meji Leaf Scarf [Red] for this tutorial, which is also available in Black. Our Feather Circle Scarf [Blue] is slightly longer and would be perfect for the  longer cape look if that's your thing, plus it would look beautiful belted at the waist too - so many options!

Enjoy!
