The Style Crone loves head wraps and in this case, an orange tunic precipitated an extensive search for the perfect scarf as an accent.  This vibrant scarf was purchased at the Denver Black Arts Festival several years ago, and along with consignment store shoes and yoga wear, a hot summer day in July became a celebration of the color orange.

According to Emily Gems, ‘Orange is a power color. It is one of the healing colors. It also stimulates enthusiasm and creativity. Orange means vitality with endurance.’  The Style Crone made the decision to embrace ‘all of that’ for today.

    I love orange too! I always say the world need more orange. I think i read once tho, that it was the most hated color by men. Love the head-wrap. Love, Paula

    Wow, so you wrapped your head with that scarf – and it looks that fabulous? You are a woman of great skill.
    I love seeing the lush green vegetation in the background. It does set off the orange beautifully.

    I do not think there is any color that does not look great on you. Love the head wrap. I love ethnic prints.

    Your extensive search paid off! This is a perfect example of a headwrap or hat transforming a basic outfit into a great one.

    What a fabulous scarf!! If I had seen it at the same time as you, we would have fought for it. Just kidding! It’s with its rightful owner. I’m so pleased to see you draw strength from various places: colour, art, nature, love of friends. Catherine said it so well: you are loved by many.

    Much love from England,
