Disclosure: Ad. The pendant necklace and silk scarf are samples gifted to me by Uno Alla Volta. The post is not endorsed by them. I wrote it entirely myself and it represents my 100% honest opinion.
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, 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 going down memory lane?
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. Its structural leaves and beautiful colors make it a perfect statement piece for any fall wardrobe. The red and greens plus winter white of the scarf allow a lot of color combinations. Therefore, 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.
Stylist tip: An artisan-made scarf is an affordable high quality gift.
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. Joyita’s red and green scarves from Uno Alla Volta are great for anyone whose wardrobe you don’t know completely. Given the many colors of the scarf, it will match many pieces.
The risk of wearing the scarf at the same venue is small. Even when it would happen, it wouldn’t matter. No two of these hand-painted scarves are exactly alike because handmade items are as unique as their wearer. Who doesn’t love that?
The other friend for whom I still had no idea what to buy, is a Christmas season clothing fan. The hand-painted Christmas light scarf featured in the Uno Alla Volta catalog, 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. This means she will have 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.
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? See this guide how to up your style with scarves.
Tip: Accessories not only change an outfit, but also can take a look from good to the best.
Gifting artisan-made holiday gifts has many advantage. They are unique because hand-made pieces never are exactly identical. These gifts are affordable, but gain value over time due to their limited number. Furthermore, you support artisans with your purchase to make a living and keep the art alive. Uno Alla Volta works directly with the artisans of various branches. See for instance, my review of Uno Alla Volta’s Murano and glass jewelry, or my review of an Uno Alla Volta purse.
