Do we like men in scarves?

Believe it or not, the debate is still going about whether men look hot - or not - in scarves. Extra conducted an online poll in September (Men in Scarves: Sexy or Silly?) - results indicate that 68% of women like their men in scarves. Some say ''yea!' and some say 'yuck!'
What do you think? Check out today's slideshow on Rediff News of some of Bollywood's most handsome men who love their scarves -- and we love their fashion sense! See pics of Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ranbir Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan and more.

Still Thinking Scarves Are Cold Weather Fare?

Not so fast... scarves are so "hot," they're cool. I was happy to discover two articles posted just this weekend noting that "women's scarves are by far the hottest fashion accessory today." The trend is still huge!

Check out this article titled "Scarves a Warming Trend for Summer Fashion" by Mike McGinley in Sunday's (10 May 09) Northeastern Pennsylvania's Times Leader.

You might also be interested to read Shaun kedikede/Nbu Melissa's blog titled "Today's Hottest Fashion Accessory is Women's Scarves," written today (11 May 09).

Silk Road Spirit at Art for Health Benefit

Today, Silk Road Spirit is proud to be participating in the Art for Health fundraiser to benefit ASU's Nurse Managed Health Centers, particularly the Breaking the Cycle Community Health Care Clinic in downtown Phoenix. The annual event -- including a juried art show, excellent jazz-inspired music, great food, and a select few exhibitors like us -- will be held on Friday, May 1 at Grace Lutheran Church -- 1124 North Third Street in Phoenix. We're donating 50% of our sales to the clinic, and 10% to the church.

If you're a SRS blog follower in Phoenix, I hope to see you at the event to support this great cause! If you are elsewhere, maybe you could check out the event online and figure out another way to support the cause.

Twitter, Twitter Little Star...

So, my friends, I've succumbed at last. I am now a Twitterer. I'm Twittering. I have a Twitter. Honestly, this hot social media movement has very wisely developed a language all its own -- it will probably take me months to learn the lingo. Whatever the phrase would be for I've jumped on the Twitter bandwagon, that's the phrase I'm looking for.

I attended a do-it-yourself social media workshop last night sponsored by Local First Arizona, and came away with an appreciation of the power of Twitter. Then once I read Chris Brogan's article, 50 Ideas on Using Twitter for Business, I was sold, as they say. I'm going to give it a try.

So please... help me to develop my Twitter group. Follow my Twitter.

50 Ways to Tie a Scarf

I wish I were an artist -- if I were, I would draw pictures for you of the more than 50 different ways that I know of to tie your Silk Road Spirit scarf. I'm working on a project now to write out the steps to the most popular scarf-tying styles, but so far, I'm not convinced the descriptions are going to help all that much (though it may help to quality you for the America's Cup yacht racing team). Eventually, we hope to have at least one picture of every imaginable knot on our site.

In the meantime, while you're waiting for us to get our acts together, I think you'll be most impressed with the Scarf Tying Guide from a company called Texere Silk. They offer step-by-step instructions and full color illustrations for more than 50 ways to tie a scarf. And if you love hand painted silk scarves, you're going to love this site. Enjoy!

Stars Flip for Scarves!

Thank goodness for the Daily News, who published 26 pictures of hot, hot, HOT celebrities wearing -- you guessed it -- scarves! My favorite is the one worn by John Legend in Pic #5, because Silk Road Spirit offers that great Cotton Dobby Scarf for only $29.95!!! Hint: THREE of the 26 pictures feature Brad Pitt wearing scarves.
