With this waxing and waning cold and warm weather, you can be at quite a loss when it comes to dressing yourself appropriately. You may leave the house and think it is warm but return home absolutely freezing. How can you cope with this? Especially if you are a public transportation taker. A scarf always helps! It always does. But a good, fashionable one? Hard to find. Kelly Massey may be able to help. She makes very light weight and large scarves that are each from a pattern that she hand paints in watercolor. These will surely keep you warm and keep you cool without any effort.
Massey is based in West Hollywood and has a handful of scarves that she sells. Each of them are made from patterns whose colors fade in and out like a light passing through a stained glass window. She currently has a few scarves for sale and each of them cater to a different type of scarf wearer: Watercolor Giraffe looks like tiny sun spots placed on silk steel; Gray and orange Bee Hives gives you a playful explanation of the bees and the hives; the Geometric Graphic scarf looks like a watercolor illustrated game of Tetris; Hand Painted Apples are good enough to eat (or to gift to a teacher); Arrow Print may not harm anyone or anything–but it looks pretty; and the for-sale Sarape Print is a beautifully exotic melon. All of her scarves are beautiful and each are patterns she makes with watercolor and brush and then printed. Take that, people who use and abuse pre-made patterns!
Massey’s goods are perfect for this weird in-between Winter time that is both hot and cold. Don’t need a scarf? Totally cool: she also sells bags, leggings, clutches, and more in these same patterns. Check out more of her work here.
