This morning I had a nice surprise when the postman arrived with two identical large boxes - I had no idea what was inside! I was thinking has my naughty niece been accidentally buying things from my phone again like when a second-hand pregnancy book turned up the other week?! I'm still baffled by that one haha! Sabah had asked me whether I would like to review a shawl and what my favourite colour was - and after much umming and arring I decided on the Bright Fushia Pink. To my surprise, Sabah very generously sent three shawls: Fushia Pink, Black Doubled Sided & a Wine coloured sequin detailed one. They all came wrapped in tissue paper and boxed with ribbon.
The Wonder Room shawls are generous in size (27 inches in width by 70 inches in length) good quality, thick and heavy and can be even worn doubled over for extra warmth. The fabric is a blend of wool, silk and viscose and it's recommended to carefully hand wash the shawls due to the delicate hand-stitched beading. The shawls have tassels, ethic beads, mirrors and sequin detailing around the edges which adds glamour! I am actually quite obsessed with scarves and I've lost count the amount of scarves and pashminas I own! They are a great and fairly cheap accessory for dressing up an simple outfit. There's also many different ways to wear the shawls - either wrapped around your shoulders as a wrap/shawl, wrapped around your neck as a scarf, looped over like I have in the photograph or even as a top with a belt!
Sabah will be adding to her collection of shawls with jewellery and tunics so look out for those on the website Wonder Room London and show her some love on Twitter @wonderroomldn Are you a fan of scarves to brighten up a simple outfit?
