1205_Casablanca_Rico_130410_493

Once you feel, admire and wear this whimsical scarf, you will realize that it is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

This 1205 Casablanca Scarf was named after the 1942 film, and it is just as much a classic as the Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman film.

The accessory is priced at a $12 wholesale, and remember, styles $12 and below require a minimum order of two per color, or $200. The Casablanca scarf is available in  denim (pictured), black  and zinc (green). It is 20″ by 37″ slub rayon with combed fringe.

In a galaxy far, far away, there was a spectacular scarf company known as Zazou.

Zazou was smart to invest in scarves, because everyone, may they be a spaceship pilot or a Jedi warrior, needs to stay warm, and a scarf is the perfect accessory to do just that.

As you may have guessed, this most recent addition of “Scarf Stars”  focuses on the one, the only, “Star Wars.”

In 1980, the second “Star Wars” film was made by George Lucas. It was “Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back,” and one of the settings within its famous plot is that of the icy planet Hoth, in which white snow constantly falls from the sky and blankets the ground below.

While traveling in Hoth, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford) must brace the cold by wrapping themselves in thick coats, goggles, caps and scarves.

In the end, however, even the warmth of their thick scarves and clothes cannot shield them from the snowy tundra. All that can save Luke in the end is the cozy, albeit gruesome, innards of his Tauntaun. Desperate times call for desperate measures, as they say.

Later in the film, in the warmer comforts of the Millennium Falcon, Solo dons another scarf, which keeps his hot head attached to his neck as he screams at the ever-startled C-3PO (Anthony Daniels).

“I can show you the world

Shining, shimmering, splendid

Tell me, princess, now when did

You last let your heart decide?
I can open your eyes

Take you wonder by wonder

Over, sideways and under

On a magic carpet ride
A whole new world

A new fantastic point of view

No one to tell us no or where to go

Or say we’re only dreaming
A whole new world

A dazzling place I never knew

But when I’m way up here, it’s crystal clear

That now I’m in a whole new world with you

Now I’m in a whole new world with you
Unbelievable sights

Indescribable feeling

Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling

Through an endless diamond sky

A whole new world

Don’t you dare close your eyes

A hundred thousand things to see(Hold your breath, it gets better)
I’m like a shooting starI’ve come so farI can’t go back

To where I used to be
A whole new world

Every turn a surprise

With new horizons to pursue

Every moment red-letter
I’ll chase them anywhere

There’s time to spare

Let me share this whole new world with you
A whole new world

That’s where we’ll be

A thrilling chase

A wondrous place

For you and me”

I am sorry, but when I saw the name of this fabulous scarf from the Fall 2013 Zazou collection, I just HAD to post this  song from the 1992 Disney classic, “Aladdin.”

This Zazou piece, which sells under the style number 1207, comes in three colors: excalibur (shown), fuchsia and tile blue. It is 20″ by 75″ slub rayon with combed fringe and wholesales for $12.  And, with that monetary fact in mind, it is important to note that styles which are $12 and under must be associated with a minimum order of two per color, and the minimum order itself is $200.

Throw on this scarf and fly toward your dreams on you own magic carpet!

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

In the romantic, suspenseful thriller “Charade,” the viewer may not know who to trust, but he or she can be certain that Audrey Hepburn’s style in this 1963 classic is undeniably chic.

Hepburn’s character, Regina Lampert, has lost her wealthy, criminal husband, and is being chased by numerous men who desire the fortune.

One such pursuer is that of the equally fashionable Cary Grant, who plays Peter Joshua. Yet, in the end, it is Hepburn’s sleek look that has landed her, and one of her accessories, into the ‘Scarf Star’ category.

In one particularly paranoid scene, Hepburn dons a down-right fabulous trench coat and matching head scarf that partially conceals her beautiful brown locks. Although her character is trying to hide, her effortlessly elegant style always makes her stand out from the crowd.

In “Charade,” Hepburn models many magnificent looks, but her matching trench and scarf ensemble is one of my favorites.

2010_despicable_me_title_reveal

Have you noticed a pattern throughout the “Scarf Star” posts thus far? I don’t mean to be doing this, but with the addition of 2010’s “Despicable Me” (this year’s “Despicable Me 2” is applicable as well,) this will be the third out of four scarves that is stripes! Who knew garments could be type casted as well?!

Nonetheless, in the lovable children’s comedy, starring the voice of Steve Carell, a super villain named Gru (Carell) plots the evil plan to adopt three orphaned girls, Margo, Edith and Agnes (who named these kids?) and use their cookie selling business as way to break into places. What did not go according to Gru’s dastardly plan, however, was the inevitability of him loving his new daughters, who help the evil genius turn things around.

Gru has an interesting body type, to say the least. The bald new dad has an incredibly wide torso, but stick-thin legs that miraculously support his large frame.

Gru is a simple man who styles his odd body type in a monochromatic sort of way. His grey turtleneck rests below his black, zip-up jacket and above his black skinny pants (how trendy Gru!) And when toting around his three girls or a weapon of mass destruction, Gru always dons his black and grey skinny scarf, that playfully whips about as he chases his children (or the minions!).

I have decided that every single week, I will focus on at least one famous scarf that has graced pop culture with its presence, because who says Audrey Hepburn’s little black dress or  Molly Ringwald’s pink prom gown should hog all the spotlight?

LBD vs. Pretty in Pink

The very first cinematic scarf I will highlight in this blog is the infamous green scarf worn by Isla Fisher’s character Rebecca in 2009’s “Confessions of a Shopaholic.”

Confessions of a Shopoholic

In this lovable chick-flick, Rebecca, a journalist, finds herself out of a job and in desperate need of a new gig, preferably one at a fabulous fashion magazine in New York City.

Somehow accidentally, however, Becca lands a job at a financial magazine, and begins an extremely popular column under the pseudonym ‘Girl in the Green Scarf.’ This title is inspired by one of Becca’s most recent impulse buys, a luscious (and expensive) forest green scarf.

Girl in the green scarf

The accordion pleats and simply sleek look may have made for a beautiful accessory, but it also made for a lot of trouble and adventure for one sweet shopaholic!

Other characters and actors in this film include:

Hugh Dancy as Luke

Krysten Ritter as Suze

Joan Cusack and John Goodman as Rebecca’s parents, Jane and Graham
