Latest Accessory Trend

Hello again everyone! I'd just like to take this time to thank all you for you incredible support of this website. I'd also like to remind all of you that I am always here if you have any questions.

This week I'd like to discuss the newest trends -- pashminas. Now, don't get me wrong -- these little shawls are definitely one of the cutest things on the market right now. However, they bare a striking price tag -- from $200 -- $3000 dollars.

The question is -- are they worth it? Not many of us would spend that much on one single accessory piece. For the cost of one pashmina, I could afford to buy all my accessories for the next year! Ultimately I think you need to decide if you can afford the high cost of fashion. If you decide you can't, try one of these affordable options:

* Buy a cute peacoat. It has the same function as a pashmina and offers maximum wear. It's also a stylish alternative to the costly price of a pashmina.
* Buy a cute cardigan sweater. Pick one in a neutral color -- it will coordinate with all of you other outfits.
* Buy a pretty shawl for dressier occasions. Buy one with beading in black or white. These shawls are great for dances and other dress-up dates.
* Try making your own pashmina out of a cheap cashmere fabric from a craft store. The differences may be noticeable, however making your own gives you creative freedom! Feel free to bead and decorate however you feel necessary. The ultimate bonus here? You'll be able to show all your admirers just how creative you can really be!

Hope you enjoyed reading my column again this week! Thanks go to all of you fashion-hungry grrrls out there who make this site as successful as it is!

Good Luck!
