  • Sunglasses: Marc Jacobs

NEPALI by TDM Design is a company with which we have had a long relationship and whose products we have always enjoyed, so when they asked to be a part of our Boutique Consortium we were happy to have them! NEPALI was launched in 2007 with the mission of supporting Nepalese women through providing them above market compensation, access to healthcare and education, and at the same time presenting a line of accessories made from natural materials such as silk, cashmere, bamboo, modal and wool and eco-friendly azo-free dyes. As they state on their website “NEPALI by TDM Design’s accessories are eco-conscious, socially responsible and stylish at the same time.” We totally agree!

I had seen on their website recently that they were marketing a bamboo scarf as a sarong, so I thought I’d give that a try with my oversized square scarf from this winter. I could have easily done what the model is doing if I’d folded it in half, but I wanted to keep the length, so I just rolled over the top to secure it. I also could have added a pin for a more certain hold. It worked well as a by-the-pool accessory, and when I started to get too much sun, I spread it over my shoulders and it was lightweight and breathable. I had no idea that it would be so great for all seasons. I’ll leave you with a few of NEPALI’s other scarves as worn by my fellow academichic ladies (click on images for same or similar scarves). What’s the most creative way you’ve worn or would wear one of these scarves?

and of course, if there is any NEPALI scarf I could have I’d want their cashmere fishnet in mead yellow. Delicious!

    I love this place! Here I thought I was all alone, a fashion loving, world traveling, polyglot anthropologist lost in a Southern Californian sea of flip flop and pj wearing…well…folks. I love these gorgeous looks!

    That fishnet scarf is great! I will have to knit my own!

    Super smart idea!

  5. Yay for the pool! And now I’m inspired to see if any of my scarves will work as sarongs for my next trip to the beach….

    This may sound dumb, especially as I admittedly have quite the scarf collection (ahem, addiction), but…it never occurred to me that the gorgeous batik sarongs I have might also work as scarves. Thanks for the great idea — I’m inspired in reverse!
