One problem I have always had however, is thinking up new ways to tie my beautiful scarves. Aside from the typical drape around and loop through methods I'm clean out of ideas. If only there were a website I could go to that provided a HUGE range of scarf tying options! BUT WAIT! There is!
Model, stylist, and blogger Arietta Yin, has created a website dedicated to just that! Knot Just a Scarf has over 70 scarf tying tutorials and over 3000 engaged followers!
We caught up with Arietta to hear all about her website Knot Just a Scarf and the amazing response she's had from fellow scarf lovers!
What gets you out of bed in the morning? A good breakfast and wanting to reply to whatever Facebook message my friends have left me. Food and friends are the best, but confusing the two never goes well.
What three things could you not live without? Rice, my boyfriend, and I think it'd help to have some oxygen too.
Tell us a bit about your website Knot just a Scarf? It's basically a blog dedicated to the different ways of tying scarves as portrayed through tutorials that I make. The tutorials are a combination of the usual ways to tie a scarf as most people know it, as well as charming tops and handbags that I make up or have been doing along the years. Knot Just A Scarf is a bit more than half a year old now and the positive response to it so far is pretty flattering.
Why do you think your site has become such a hit? The concept of my blog appeals to a wide variety of people online, I think. There is no other extensive collection of scarf tying tutorials online unless Hermès were to drop being exclusive and publish every single tutorial they have. Hermès probably doesn't have the styles I've created either, so I think a lot of creative and DIY/craftsy people are really drawn to the site. Then you have the scarf enthusiasts, who naturally are interested. Fashionistas are fascinated by the variety and the styling that can be had from a relatively inexpensive accessory. Even if you don't really fit in all the obvious demographics interested in my blog, the fact that someone has come up with almost a hundred ways in less than half a year to play with a piece of fabric is probably pretty interesting in and of itself.
Where do you see yourself in five years? I'd like to think that I would have graduated from my conjoint degree by then and hopefully haven't run out of ways to tie scarves.
Anything else you'd like to share with us? Due to my blog's popularity, I'm creating a Facebook page to interact better with all of my fans. I'll be launching it on August 1st so be sure to visit as giveaways of exciting sponsored products from brands such as Rimmel London, MIKI and Scarf Queen will be starting a few days after the launch. If you have a Pinterest or a Tumblr be sure to follow for a chance to win a cute starry patterned snood scarf or a scarf watch in another awesome giveaway in mid-August. Who doesn't love pretty and useful freebies, right? Hope you enjoyed the tutorials I showed you and thanks so much for having me Le Petite Mania!
