The Convertible Scarf-Top-Shrug by Boditecture

Our obsession with convertible clothing runs deep. Not only do multi-way pieces give you more options, it’s just plain cool knowing your scarf-top-hood-shrug could also be a shrug-hood-top-scarf. So we were obviously enthused over the Scarf Hug by San Francisco label Boditecture.

Focusing on garments that can be worn in multiple ways, Boditecture sells a variety of convertible pieces, but this one stands out for offering 12 options that span casual daywear to nightlife-ier styles. Made of a loose wool knit and available in several colors, the $79 item can be wrapped around your neck as a scarf or fashioned into a variety of tops, a shrug, a hood and several looks that are somewhere in between.

You’ll find it online in the Boditecture online shop.

Oh, the Newness: Little Feather SF Winter 2011

Horn Necklace, $62, with a copper tone center bead, black glass bead disks, polished cow horns and silver coils on a nylon rope.

This holiday season, watch out for the Little Feather SF Winter 2011 Collection by San Francisco designer and Academy of Art alum Melinda Rodriguez, who combines an array of exotic  materials (feathers, horns, sequins, bones, crystals, glass beads and even rope) to achieve a result that skillfully balances elegant with bold, fragile with strong.

In her latest pieces, Rodriquez juxtaposes delicate and strong elements to create a new line of jewelry that makes a statement while maintaining its feminine appeal. We think the rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings are perfect for gift-giving or treating yourself to a little something special. Because gift giving feels just as good as receiving, doesn’t it?

Amethyst Crystal Necklace,$36, with Amethyst crystal, copper plate cable chain and Bali copper clasp.

White Paillettes Necklace, $74, made of vintage paillettes (sequins), snake vertebrae bones, carved horn bead and gold-plated pyramids strung on a silver serpentine chain.
