I first learned of Louisa Parris when I watched her video on this wonderful tutorial, “Five New Easy and Elegant Ways To Fold a Scarf.” Then when I attended her trunk show at Press: Works on Paper last Thursday and saw those beautiful scarves in person, it was like love at first sight! I guess you can say we met online. :) 

I kind of want to kick myself for not buying a scarf that evening because Louisa Parris was giving a special price at the trunk show. But I told myself that I should really sleep on it and if I wake up still thinking about the scarf, then it’s meant to be. Well, guess what… almost a week later, these scarves are still on my mind! So now, I have officially made Louisa Parris my top wish list for this Christmas. Ahem… husband, if you’re reading —> this one is my favorite. :) 

I do want to highlight that for every Louisa Parris scarf is sold, a percentage gets donated to the San Francisco St. Vincent de Paul Society’s Riley Center for Battered Women and their Children. So while this scarf may cost a bit of money, I know I would feel good that a portion of my purchase would go towards a great cause. And isn’t the holiday season all about giving?
