    Default The 'Alternative' Moira C + your opinion of scarflaces?

    Have to say I prefer the more restrained version of Moira C, as seen this morning. Is this just a temporary thing, or has she finally calmed down? Of course, we had the "I live in a windmill" reference - so that hasn't changed - but at least she was giving some information, instead of just charging around and not finishing her sentences. Has anyone bought any scarflaces - what's your opinion of them?



    Pope Pete has just got himself in the studio, on the pretext of carrying in a stand with scarves on it - I thought he wouldn't be off screen for long, as he seems to live and sleep there, and do the cleaning as well, not to mention running the canteen.

    Restrained? I have never seen her like this. I worry about her health as I think she is going to burst like a balloon, she is so hyperactive. I can't watch her, I get worn out just watching her!

    Never bought a scarflace, I have dozens of scarves (woollen, velvet, silk you name it) but for some reason have never been tempted by these.

    Perhaps I caught her just after she'd been given a tranquilliser!! I'm used to seeing her rushing around, talking at a rate of knots, grabbing scarflaces and trying to upstage the models; today, she was actually talking in sentences - and standing in one spot for a while, which to me equals restraint where she's concerned. I've often thought that some of the scarflace patterns are quite attractive, and they had 2 pretty pastel lace ones today which were unusual, but I've never come across anyone who has bought one and can say what they are like. I've got a mint-coloured lace scarf which is similar (not from the Moira C range, though).

    Nobody here is the Tcaller who's got over a hundred of them?

    I've got a few scarves but none of these. They're a bit thin for my liking, although some of the prints are nice. I wouldn't need the magnets either, I like to wrap them round my neck a few times and do my own styles. I only wear them in colder months.

    Thanks for this, Momma. You've confirmed what I thought about the thinness of the fabric, although when Moira was in manic mode, whizzing them about, it was difficult to tell. PS: No, I'm definitely not the person with over a 100 of them - this would leave no room in the house for the Kinkycades and Nativity Stones jewellery!

    Quite possibly it had!! I do think the tiresome plug for the fact that she lives in a windmill is long past its sell-by date, and the "welcome to my home, I'm just the same as all of you" act also. Both smack of showing-off, especially when they're repeated so often. Just promote the product, love.

    Don't really have an opinion on Moira, she's a bit of a loon, but I don't find her unwatchable. When I first came across scarflaces, might have even been on QVC I thought they were awful and I think back then they mostly were. The shades were mostly garish and floral, or in frumpy pastel colours with those hideous filigree fastenings and I wasn't tempted in the least. Found one in a charity shop quite some time later and it was had quite a nice vintage paisley design, so I bought it...and I have to say I loved it. I checked out Moira's website and found some quite nice ones so I bought a leopard skin one and I wore it loads. Since then I've bought a fair few, and now they've got the magnetic fastenings, they're much better. The designs now are far less frumpy. She still does a hell of a lot of frumpy designs, but now you can get spotty ones, animal prints, ones with butterflies on, vintage ones - I've got a lovely one with a sort of "Parisian cafe design", a white one with red chilli peppers on and many many more. I also managed to get a limited edition larger one and it's an aubergine colour with burn out design and it looks amazing...and you can wear them in all different ways eg, round your head..but I don't do the Grace Kelly look...I tend to wear them as a
    headband sometimes. I've worn them just hung around the neck over a slimline black dress on a night out...covers a multitude of sins lol!

    I would definitely recommend! The only gripe I have is that I wished Moira would do a mix and match deal with the sets of scarflaces she does as nine times out of then the three I'd choose would come from separate sets - It would be great if you could just pick your three favourites.

    I would need a sedative if I watched Moira C for more than 5mins. She never draws breath, but she seem to have made a good living out of acting ott....
