Great holiday gifts from Uno Alla Volta

A scarf and/or pendant necklace make great gifts

Uno Alla Volta sent me a surprise package last week. When I opened the package, I found this wonderful fall oblong Joyita silk scarf and this amber pendant sterling silver necklace made by Avi one of their jewelry design artists.

This beautiful necklace brought back memories of my childhood summer vacations with my family at the Jade Bay in northern Frisia. On days with gray skies, but no rain, we did beach walks and collected small amber pieces that the waves had washed ashore. Still today, I love beach walks on these days. The beaches are lonely then. It’s just you, the wind, and the sound of the waves and your company. So peaceful as compared to a sunny day when the beach is packed. Isn’t it weird how a beautiful art piece can send you down memory lane?

Zoom-in on Joyita’s red and green leaf devore silk scarf to illustrate the textural structure and beautiful colors, and on Avi’s amber and sterling silver oval pendant necklace to show the nice reflection of light within the amber. This pendant comes with the chain for $99. The scarf is available for only $60.

A high quality artisan made silk scarf with a beautiful design

Ever since my Granny Hannah gave me a silk scarf, I have loved the touch of silk on my skin. This devore silk scarf is super soft and its structural leaves and beautiful colors make it a perfect statement piece for any fall wardrobe. The red and greens and winter white of the scarf allow a lot of color combinations. Thus, the scarf is a real addition to my indoor and outerwear wardrobe options alike. Just see the example outfit photos with my work outfit and outerwear. What a nice gift! Thank you, Uno Alla Volta.

A unique scarf is a great addition for every wardrobe

The scarf also solved my problem to finish my holiday shopping list! I have two friends who are hard to shop for. A scarf is a great gift for any fashionista and woman who likes to dress nicely. And they both do. I’ll get one of Joyita’s red and green scarves from Uno Alla Volta for one of them. I still had no gift idea for her. She lives in another town down the Alcan, and hence I don’t know her complete wardrobe. Given the many colors of the scarf, it will match many of her pieces. The risk that we wear the same scarf at the same venue is small. Even when it would happen, it doesn’t matter. No two of these hand-painted scarves are exactly alike. That’s the great thing about hand-made items. They are as unique as their wearer. Who doesn’t love that?

An artisan made silk scarf is always a great gift idea. #holidays Click To Tweet

The other friend for whom I still had no idea what to buy, is a big season clothing fan. The hand-painted Christmas light scarf I saw in the catalog that was in the package, will be the perfect gift for her. Thanks to the fast turn around time from ordering to receiving the item, I will be able to give her the scarf before Thanksgiving. Thus, she has the entire holiday season to wear the scarf. When on the Uno Alla Volta web store page, I saw that there are many other great options for those season clothing fans. Have you had a look at their new pieces yet? Maybe they have the perfect gift for that hard to shop for friends of yours too.

Accessories up your style

I am so excited about my new accessories for fall. It’s always fascinating how accessories can make one to take a whole new look at the pieces one already owns. I wouldn’t have the idea to pair the burned red cardigan with my burgundy sheath dress (photo below) if it hadn’t been for the scarf. It just suggested the pairing by its own colors. Guess what?

The scarf gave me also another styling idea. Thus, watch out for that outfit.

Accessories not only change an outfit, but also can take it from good to stunning. #agelesstyle Click To Tweet
