Innocent Pride Scarves

20 Jan

I love scarves. They’re versatile, remind me of chic French style and are an inexpensive way to completely change the look of an outfit.

Which brings me to Katrina Mastronardi, an Edmontonian who designs and hand-makes some beautiful and funky creations, called Innocent Pride Scarves. Mastronardi’s scarves are quickly developing a following; on the cover of the latest issue of Parlour magazine, the model is wearing Innocent Pride. The magazine also included Mastronardi in their “We Love” list.

I began to covet my own Innocent Pride scarf on Christmas Day, when Laura Halvorsen, a good friend to the Magnan siblings, stopped by our parents’ house for a visit. She was wearing an Innocent Pride scarf, and I was immediately smitten with the loop of material, the leather cuff and the unique look it added to Laura’s denim shirt. (As we know, lately I’m all about how to wear the denim shirt.):

Next time I’m in Edmonton, I may have to figure out a way to get my hands on one of Katrina’s gorgeous scarves.

Now, let’s get back to Laura. She’s awesome. Not only is she a Westjet market researcher, but she’s a yogi, yoga teacher and a talented musician, songwriter and singer.

I’m not the only one to dub her awesome. Last summer, Laura won Calgary is Awesome’s songwriting competition, called Shot at the Dark. Check out the video they shot of her singing the winning song, called Apartment Floor.

On that note, Laura is writing and recording new songs, and uploading them to her Apartment Series on YouTube. Be sure to check back often, because she’s posting new material all the time.
