How To Tie A Turban

31 July 2010

" Megan, 
   I love T.F.D and I saw your post for Turban Time and I have been looking all over for a turban to sport. I saw your version was a scarf, how did you tie yours to look like a turban. The only way I know is with my towel when I'm drying my hair. Help! 
Thanks, Tell Me How to Turban "


The good ol' towel trick, great for when I'm dripping from the shower - not so great for wearing in public. As far as my 'turban' goes I actually did it with a scarf, and I've attached a few how-to pictures on how to tie 'my' turban as well as a couple other options.

First you're going to need a scarf, most sizes will do, I used 3 different sizes for each one small, medium and large. But I have found that rectangular scarves achieve the look a lot better than the square ones. 
Next you're going to want to take the scarf and bring the two side from the back of your head - like so
(sorry for the shine, I didn't realize how shiny I was today)
Then you are going to need to bring it around front and twist it, two times to get the desired turban look.
Now you need to take it back behind your head again and tie it..
Finished Product - (Yes I really made that face)
Other Options :
(Tied the Same Way)
'Headband' with visible ponytail
With Rectangular Scarf
Bun
Front

I suggest you play around with it, I bet it'd look great with a side braid too. 
Xo, Megan

Take My Bow

Ok, I'm not a big GAGA fan but for some reason I was feeling her 'bow hairstyle' with a few of my own changes of course. (HAIR-TO) I decided to pair my bow with a full lace dress ( that I wore to my High School Graduation, 5 years ago...) belted at the waist with a thick black belt and accessorized with bow accent peep toes, my berry bag and silver jewelry. Since I wasn't really going anywhere special today I threw on my green jacket to casual down my look so I wasn't so dressed up to grocery shop. Though I've been known to do such things. ;)

Friday's Feathers

30 July 2010

Feathers are always a good way to start the weekend, right? Add stripes and bam your done. Ok maybe not but I'm loving the pairing of feathers and classic stripes on a slouchy tee. I threw on a vest and pumps to complete the look, keeping my accessories minimal....

Inside The Closet

29 July 2010

Being that I've been getting requests to see what's going on in my closet and, the fact that I haven't had a chance to snap any pictures for today's look, here's a peek inside my closet and studio...Where all the magic happens, he he, kidding.  Here it is.....
The 'this season' closet
Though I have a walk in closet I still don't have room for all, let alone 1/2 my stuff, maybe it's time to weed out.
and some of my shoes, they go back rows and some live at my mom and dad's 
house because lack of room in our loft

On to the Studio...

Stripes of Slub

28 July 2010

I'm feeling the slouchy - too cool for school look today, it's a rainy and overcast day and slub cool fits. I paired a boyfriend blazer with a slouchy striped vneck with roll up cargo shorts. I threw on my zip up platforms because they are 'above' puddles ( so I don't get wet), along with my fringe bag and wooden necklace. All it's missing is a belt maybe...
Off to fight the rain and the bounce bounces at Monkey Joe's with my 1 year old. 
Note to self take pictures before you go play with your toddler because you get rustled up...

Going Green

Ok not eco-green, but Emerald Green...



I've been obsessing about one shoulder caftan like dresses for months now, and I finally broke down and made a tunic version. I love the emerald green, and I got the fabric for $1 a yard. Score. Although I have a feeling it would be prettier in a peach or white color, or a nice light print. It can be worn belted or flowy, and is super comfy - although it's a little warm due to the fabric being a little heavier. I paired it with skinny jeans, textured platforms and twisted necklace. What do you think?

The un-glamourous side of Monday

26 July 2010

Today has been quite the lazy day to say the least. It has consisted of watching a few hours of Sesame Street (with and without my son...), laying on the couch eating white chocolate berry pancakes and wrangling a toddler. I literally didn't get dressed or leave the house until around 7pm, and that was just to go for an evening stroll. And this is what I ended up throwing on....A denim bubble short romper and tank topped with a blue cardigan and brown boots. Super exciting right?
