There's been a bit of blog silence for the past week because... I have an exciting announcement!!! I've opened an Etsy shop, and I'm starting it out with vintage-appropriate headwraps!
I know a lot of you have expressed a desire to try out more wraps, but there isn't really a place that caters to vintage-wearers like us. Flashback Summer Shop now carries wraps in prints like florals, polka dots, and ginghams that will coordinate beautifully with your farmerette overalls and circle skirts!
You'll find three different shapes of scarves in the shop, and here's a run-down of the differences between them:
- Rectangle - This is the kind of scarf more commonly found in African headwrap shops, and there is an endless variety of styles you can create with these! There's a lot of fabric to work with, and these scarves are especially great if you like dramatic flair and volume in your wraps.
- Square - These scarves were commonly worn back in the day and are probably most famously donned by World War 2 factory workers like "Rosie the Riveter." These are generally used for drapier styles and are made of lighter fabrics. They're also perfect for covering curlers!
- Triangle - The triangle scarves are based on headscarves in my own collection. I call these "chore wraps" because they tie into only one basic style, but with hair and accessory changes they get a lot of wear in my wardrobe! They're sturdy, and I've experimented to find the perfect size that allows enough room for hair while being tight enough not to slip off.
Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions for wraps you'd like to see in the shop! In the meantime, I'd be SO thankful if you would help me spread the word!
