The runways are toting jewel tones for fall 2011.
Ladies, these hues make my heart sing! There isn’t a skin tone or hair color on the planet that doesn’t look fabulous with a touch of deep red or turquoise. Pull out your fushias, sapphires, and citrine yellow! It’s going to be an eye-popping fall.
Since my wardrobe consists of black and more black, I wasn’t sure how to jazz it all up without spending a small fortune. Thus began my love affair with the pashmina (or “shawl” if you’re my mother). Not only is this wrap beautiful, warm, and versatile, it’s also very easy to fold up and take anywhere! And did I mention one size fits all? It’s true! We can all look great in it (unlike the current mini dress trend).
And oh the ways it can change a basic black outfit!
Scarf it up!
Who needs a fall jacket? Not this girl!
Hide from the paparazzi (or the more perky moms in the morning drop-off line).
Pashmina wraps can range in price from $5 (street vendor) to $100 (fancy department store). The one I’m wearing today is a mere $20 from a local boutique, Aldridge Clothiers.
As a fashionista herself, the owner of Aldridge Clothiers has offered to give a pashmina to one lucky Curvy Girl Guide reader! She is also offering a coupon code for an additional 20% any pashmina online! Just enter the code MEREDITH2011. We love her!
All you have to do is leave a comment. That’s easy enough. You can comment on the wrap I’m rocking, tell me about your cat, share a fall fashion tip with us, complain about the weather, go on and on about my hair… anything! Good luck!
