Wear a turban scarf like Ashley Olsen

The Olsen twins are the most famous twins on the planet. Discovered when they were still toddlers, Mary-Kate and Ashley are little fashion gurus and are now at the helm of an empire that is worth millions. Therefore it only seemed logical to talk about Ashley Olsen’s turban scarf in this post! This style looks as great as the Rihanna style we presented previously and will be perfect for this summer ;)

Look #1: the knotted headband scarf

For this look you will need a small, rectangular scarf.

  1. Tie a knot in the middle of the scarf.
  2. Tie the ends together and place the headband on your head, above the forehead.

This look screams boho-chic. The leather jacket counterbalances the hippie vibe of the head scarf.

Look #2 : ethnic turban

For this look, you will need a big square scarf.

  1. Fold the scarf in a triangle and place it on your head.
  2. Twist the ends on one side of your head.
  3. Wrap the ends around the head and tie a knot.

As an accessory to a smoky eye, this look is perfect for a night out.


Which look is your favorite?

Meaning of the flowers on the scarf Afternoon on Carmine Street: roses, wild pansies, tulips. . .

Today, the subject for our post will be a little different from our usual ones, but it does not stray too far from scarves. In a carmine red shade and adorned with a myriad of flowers more or less mysterious, we are going to talk about the flowers printed on Comtesse Sofia‘s best-selling scarf, “Afternoon on Carmine Street” and give you their meaning. Remember, we told you how to tie a scarf and even how to wear it, now it’s time to show you that scarves have a story too. We think it is always interesting to identify and know the meaning of our accessories and things we wear. Besides, who does not love flowers?


Offering flowers can either be a religious gesture or a gift, but the language of flowers differs from one culture to another. Therefore, some flowers are more favored than others and certain colors evoke different emotions. In addition to cultural differences, the meaning of flowers has evolved over time.


The Afternoon on Carmine Street shawl includes several flowers. We do not think of ourselves as flower experts, but we are going to present you in a few words what some of them mean: the heartsease, the Pink Cloud rose, the Vinca and the tulip.

  • Heartsease, pansy (viola tricolor) :

The heartsease is a growing plant highly sought-after for its delicate flowers. The flower can have two or three colors. The petals can be purple, crimson, yellow, blue or white. The wild pansy can be used as herb tea to calm the nerves or in case of fever. The flower was mentioned in Shakespeare’s Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

  • Vinca :

The vinca flower is violet. According to some, its name comes from “vincere”, which means “vanquish” because the vinca can heal some illnesses. For philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau, this flower evokes happiness and the memory of his “mommy”, Madame de Warens. Indeed, in his Confessions, the sight of this flower triggers fond memories of time spent with his “mommy” thirty years ago, a little like Proust’s madeleine.

  • Red tulip:

Tulips symbolize love, and red tulips are used as a declaration of love.

  • Pink Cloud :

This is a creeping rose obtained in 1952 in the US which is highly valued in France. Its flowers, like a cloud (but pink) come in clutters and are double. Their fragrance is subtle. They symbolize the blossoming beauty of a woman, and pink roses express joy, grace, sympathy, admiration and tenderness. A deep pink rose means gratitude. Rose buds are metaphorical for a blossoming love or friendship.

Anecdotes on roses : roses are the National Floral Emblem of the US and the state flower of several American states, including New York! In Ancient Greece and Rome, roses were sacred because they symbolized the Goddess of Beauty and Love (Aphrodite/Venus).
