Love: Lace Scarves

Scarves may be a small accessory but they’re a fantastic way to add some instant style to an outfit. With so many creative ways to wear them, you must admit, scarves are an extremely versatile item which should pretty much be a staple item in your closet. Plus, if you get the appropriate material, scarves can keep you warm during the cold winter months, adding a ton of style sophistication at the same time!

We’re all about lace scarves this fall. We have them available in pretty soft pastel colours, neutral brown and grey shades, and in vivid colours like blue and yellow. They’re 100% linen and measure 72″ x 24″. Pictured are just some of our favourite colours for this season.

You can shop them or check out the rest of our scarves here:

What’s your favourite way to wear a scarf?

The lace patches add a pretty and elegant touch to your overall look. They look fantastic when paired with denim or leather which creates an edgy, yet feminine look. Or glam up a plain t-shirt or long sleeved top by tying a scarf around your neck or simply letting it drape freely around your shoulders.

All of our scarves are handcrafted by Indian artisans and are available in very limited quantities. We handpick small quantities in limited styles so you can be sure no one else will have the same one. All of these scarves, plus many more in different colours, patterns and styles are available here. 


Our E-Store Has Launched!

We’re very excited to announce the launch of our e-store! We’ve worked very hard over the past year and completed almost all of the set-up using our own skills, with very little outside help. We’ve learned so much during the start-up process and have gained invaluable insights along the way. After many sleepless nights and many ups and downs, highs and lows, we’re so relieved to have our store up and running!

We have many more ideas and goals for the future with our company, Indiverve Retail Company Inc! We’d like to thank those who have stood by and supported us along the way. Your encouragement was very much appreciated during the tough, and sometimes frustrating, times. For us, its the beginning of a new chapter!

Please stop by our store and tell us what you think! We are located in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and are delighted to call this fantastic city home. Our team consists of people originally from India and from Saskatchewan, Canada- a very diverse team full of different insights!

Now, an inspirational quote which we find very fitting to how we’re feeling at the moment!

Cheers! XOXO

Quote of the Day- Believe in Yourself!

Brazilian model and actress, Adriana Lima, best known for her work with Victoria’s Secret and Maybelline cosmetics, pretty much sums it up for today’s fashion quote. Confidence, attitude and inner strength are all very important in looking and feeling your best. Not only that but we need to remember that as humans, we have so much more strength than we give ourselves credit for. As Adriana states, believe in yourself  and your abilities and the sky is the limit! Everyone around you will be attracted to your positive energy and outer glow if you take on the world with a smile on your face and a good attitude. Show that you have what it takes to accomplish whatever it is you want in life.  After all, confidence is the best fashion statement.

How to Get Boho Waves

Messy and loose boho style waves can look really chic for an every day look at the office or for a big event. Casual and effortless looking, this hairstyle works best on naturally wavy hair. Straight haired girls can achieve a similar look by using a small barrel curling iron and curling small sections of hair. Here, we focus on skipping the curling iron altogether and instead using bobby pins, patience and some good hair twisting skills. Mila Kunis, Cameron Diaz, Alexa Chung and Kate Hudson all provide inspiration of how to do pull off this enviable hairstyle.

Follow the steps to get the look:

1. Apply some type of styling product to damp hair. Texturizing cream or mousse works best for this particular style.

2. Separate hair into 1 inch sections and twist them from roots to ends. Secure pieces with bobby pins.

3. Dry your hair thoroughly by letting it naturally air dry or if you ‘re in a hurry, with the blast of a blow dryer.

4. Remove each bobby pin and let the twists of hair loose. Do not brush them out.

5. Gently shake your hair out and spray your head with light to medium hold hairspray.

Voila! You’re done. Now go get ’em!
