- Review: Powder Tessa Lavender Snood -

Sunday, January 19, 2014
I was very kindly sent this snood for review and I was able to choose the item - however this does not affect my opinion of the brand/product, for more information about PR and my disclaimer, click herePowder was co-founded by Lisa Beaumont and Lucas Nicholls in 2009. With 45 years experience of design and branding knowledge between them they set out to create a new brand of fashion accessories! The powder philosophy is to create unique designs that brighten your day! To create scarves and designs that are loveable, offer the highest quality design and value, create the perfect gift and to give the customer the best possible service - what more could you ask for!
I have the *Powder Tessa Scarf/Snood in Lavender (£20) which is from the 'warm and wintery' collection. Matching mittens are also available, click here. I picked this particular snood (infinity scarf/circle scarf) as I do not have anything like it - it looks so unique. I love the lavender grey and orange/coral combination! I would wear this scarf with jeans and a jumper or a plain black dress and leather jacket for example. You will see this snood in an upcoming ootd or winter lookbook post.

I find the quality of the snood to be exceptional, it is very well made and it is the softest snood I have ever tried! The knit is not overly chunky too but it is definitely not thin. It is super cosy, thick and a great size/length. As it is a snood there are not excess lengths of scarf, it just bundles around the neck and it keeps me very warm and cosy in the horrible British winter. I wore this snood yesterday while shopping in the cold and wind - it kept me warm and snugly all day, I didn't want to take it off! I wore it with a white top, dark wash high waisted jeans and a black duffle coat. I am going to be buying my mum a scarf or pair of gloves from Powder, I just can't decide what yet - there is a lot of choice. 

The snood was delivered very quickly and the item came with its own large Powder gift bag which I think it such a nice and useful addition. So if you bought one of the scarves, mittens or gloves as a gift then you also have a gorgeous, super pretty gift bag for it! The attention to detail makes the product/brand stand out for me (as well as their unique, English heritage feel products) such as the gift bag, small labels on the scarf and the cute tag on the scarf. Overall, a gorgeous snood that will see me through many autumn and winters - I would definitely recommend this snood and the brand generally. The scarves, mittens and gloves would make gorgeous presents for birthdays or valentines day *cough, cough*

What do you think of the Tessa Scarf? Have you bought anything from Powder UK before?

  6. It's really beautiful, those two colours wouldn't be something I would usually go for but the shades work so well together. Plus, it looks comfy!

  9. I've never heard of Powder UK but this looks like such a lovely snood. I find snoods to much cosier than a scarf, especially the really thick ones like this. It looks lovely on you!
