Though infrequently discussed on this blog, Zazou, known for its chic scarves, also sell finely made fingerless gloves that embody the essences of warmth, texture and luminosity.

In the image pictured above, the model has paired some prim fingerless gloves with her lace top and Stonewash Scarf from the Fall 2013 Zazou collection.

Fingerless gloves are a fun alternative to your normal winter wear accessories. The fingerless aspect is also useful because it keeps your hands warm while still allowing you to do normal tasks that other gloves inhibit, such as buttoning jackets or accessing your phone.

It was so exciting this morning to hold the hard copy of the Zazou Fall 2013 catalog in my hands! It is a sizable catalog filled with looks and pieces that embody Zazou qualities: Luminosity, Texture, Warmth.

Geometric lines in varying hues of blue create graphic, infinite squares in this Parquet scarf, a piece from the Fall 2013 Zazou collection, which will soon be posted on zazou.com

What is so appealing about this certain accessory is how the intrinsic lines resemble squared pools in differing depths. The lighter blue is like a shallow pond, whereas the darker blues are like deep oceans you could almost dove into!

I have officially discovered a new trick in fashion: if you are ever unsure of what to wear, whether the stylish conundrum pertains to the weather, location or occasion, you can always get cues and tips from movies.

Want to know what to wear in New York? Watch “Friends with Benefits” or “Sex in the City.” Want to know what to wear as an undercover agent? Watch “Mr. and Mrs. Smith.”

But, if you want to know what to wear during a chilly winter in London, look no further than 2006’s “The Holiday,” starring Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Jack Black and the sleek, chic Cameron Diaz.

In “The Holiday,” two single women in love-ruts swap homes for the holiday season. Cameron’s character, Amanda Woods, “vacations” in London whereas Kate’s character, Iris Simpkins, moves into Amanda’s LA pad.

As the movie’s plot will inform you, the changes of scenery are what these seemingly unlucky women need to turn things around.

And, while falling in love and changing her ways, Cameron’s character, specifically, dresses in darling, winter-ready ensembles in shabby chic palettes, complete with adorable winter caps and cuddly scarves.

Arguably her cutest accessory, however, is that of Graham, played by Jude Law (who is rocking a sweet man scarf himself)! P.S. If you would like to check out scarves for yourself or your customers, visit zazou.com

Unbelievably so, it is my 10th day at the office, as I work to complete my internship for my Apparel Merchandising and Management major at Cal Poly Pomona. As mentioned before, once I complete this internship and the course associated with it, I will be able to apply for graduation and receive my diploma from college!

Getting back to accomplishments closer at hand, I will begin the morning by stating how excited I am that I have finally picked the day (today) to wear my zebra shirt! I have been wanting to wear this top on a Tuesday or Thursday so as to properly represent this Zazou blog, who, as we all know, is symbolized by a zebra!

Today is a self sufficient day, in which I will work on projects that were assigned to me last week, and some that were assigned even earlier. For example, each day I try to get through at least 100 descriptive blurbs on the Sterling Styles website. There are also more ad campaigns that can be accomplished for the New York show room in August, and the designs and information pertinent to both the Zazou and Sterling Styles sites must be fine tuned as well.

And of course, one of my favorite duties at this internship, is adding posts and content to this blog, while simultaneously raising awareness about https://www.zazou.com/z_index.php

I am still being helped by what I learned in classes such as AMM 230 and 270, in which descriptors and visual design were so important.

Thank you everybody for reading, and from all of us here at Zazou, have a fantastic day 😀
