I ended up going to a bollywood themed charity event recently and wanted a quick accessory that would add a touch of bollywood to a dressy outfit. Since I wanted something I could wear afterwards without looking like I was going to a costume party, I ended up buying a couple of these $10 paisley scarves from Amazon.com. I’m really happy with them & ended up wearing the turquoise gold one to the event (left).
These are excellent quality for the price but there are some minor imperfections on close inspection. Not anything anyone would notice while you’re wearing it though. No idea if it’s real pashmina (probably not) but the fabric feels wonderful anyway.
It can be worn as a wrap or styled as a thicker looking scarf. The fabric IS lightweight but there’s a lot there. Definitely not a summer weight.
Turq/Gold – It actually looks pretty true to the manufacturer’s photo in natural sunlight though on second look, maybe not quite as vibrant. One side has the bottom band gold, the other side has the bottom band turquoise. I got a better photo of this one than I did of the pink/turquoise one.
Pink/Turquoise – the lighting in my photo could be better. It actually looks pretty true to the manufacturer’s photo in natural sunlight. One side has the bottom band pink, the other side has the bottom band turquoise.
