The pashmina is one of the most versatile fashion accessories for women. The ways it can be worn and used are equally numerous and amazing! From a fabulous fashion accessory to a nursing blanket, the pashmina covers not only your ever-day fashion needs but also some of the basic needs of a new mommy.

First, we present you with a video tutorial on how to wear the pashmina shawl. You’ll discover new stylish ways to tie your pashmina shawls or scarves. Enjoy!

Second, the pashmina shawl is the perfect alternative for airplane blankets. During a long flight it is mandatory that you get your rest and we all know that airplane blankets aren’t the softest, most comfortable in the world. Instead of enduring the discomfort of an airplane blanket, why not pack up you own cashmere pashmina and wrap yourself in softness every time you feel the need to take a quick nap! The pashmina shawl is easy to carry around as you can either wear it to achieve that stylish airport look or simply pack it in your bag as it won’t take up any of the space.

Third, the pashmina shawls make wonderful nursing blankets.

And the versatility and functionality of the pashmina shawls doesn’t stop here. Another great way to use the pashmina shawl is as a baby carry-on. We present you with a great video tutorial on how to create your own baby carry-on. The video is in Polish, but the images are self-explanatory so we are sure new moms will find it extremely helpful. Enjoy!

The Cashmere Pashmina Shawl is the perfect choice in fashion accessories and the perfect gift for any occasion. Made from a blend of 70% finest cashmere and 30% luxurious silk, our beautifully colored cashmere pashmina shawls are not only the best quality you can get on the market but they also offer an incredibly soft feel and exceptional look. Available in a rainbow of more than 90 amazing colors, the elegant cashmere and silk pashmina shawls will add the perfect final touch to any outfit, whether it is during the day, as an evening shawl or as a soft nursing blanket!

Happy Wednesday ScarfDay everyone!

Our pick for today is a fun, colored scarf: the Silver Dot Scarf!

Polka dots are and always will be one of the most trendy fashion patterns but there are some who feel like wearing a polka dot shirt or dress might be a little too much. If you are one of those people but you still love dots and like this trend, the solution is to wear a chic sliver dot scarf. Not only does the silk metallic silver dot scarf makes the perfect choice in fashion accessories but its quality is also exceptional.

Made entirely out of luxurious silk, they are light enough to be worn on sunny days and also warm enough to be worn during colder ones. The Metallic Silver dots design along with the ruffled material gives the scarves a cool, modern look  so this scarf is perfect  if you are looking for a way to liven up your wardrobe this season.

We have selected three colorful silver dots scarves and we need your help in selecting this week’s most fashionable scarf! Which one will it be?
