25 Ways to Wear a Scarf in 4.5 Minutes!

:: Behind the Scenes :: http://www.wendyslookbook.com/2011/04/behind-the-scenes-25-ways-to-wear-a-scarf/ The Infinity vs. DIY Infinity =D :: http://wendyslookbook.com The difference is very subtle - the first fold. The Infinity is folded along the diagonal while the DIY Infinity is folded in half, horizontally. The Infinity starts off as a triangle, whereas the DIY Infinity begins as a rectangle. It seems like a trivial difference, but due to the shape, the Infinity fold works best with square scarves whereas the DIY version can be pulled off on thicker longer scarves. Also, because of the different starting shapes, the way the scarves drape are also slightly different. I wanted to include both in case people had trouble with the Infinity fold on their scarves, but due to the speed of the video, the first step was a bit harder to convey :( For scarf tutorial videos on how to tie these styles, please select which box you would like to see at the end. Scarves are great for every season - from light chiffon scarves for Spring and Summer to voluminous cashmere scarves for Fall to thick wool scarves for Winter - scarves are the perfect accessory to compliment any outfit.

The State of Social Video: Marketing in a Video-First World

In an earnings call last year, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said, “Ten years ago, most of what we shared and consumed online was text. Now it’s photos, and soon most of it will be video. We see a world that is video first with video at the heart of all our apps and services.” Today, “video-first” has become a reality for consumers and marketers alike. We surveyed 1,000 consumers and 500 marketers to find out how video is making an impact in today’s golden age of video. How are consumers watching? And what are marketers doing to reach viewers?
