Baby, it's cold outside!

Many brides opt to get their bridemaids a pashima to wear to their early Spring or late Fall wedding.  Peach Couture has rayon pashimas starting at $10.  



Of course, if live in the city, it is always possible to get a good deal of a street vendor especially if you are buying in bulk.

I really enjoy getting pashimas from Benetton.  Think of the Italian version of The Gap, the store offers better quality at reasonable priced.  Unfortunately, their color selection is limited.

If I could have any pashima though, I'd opt for this pretty one from Tiffany.  Oversized and 100% cashmere, it would be a fabulous gift.

The ones from Nordstrom are the best quality compared to price. I love my bridesmaids but there's no way in hell I'd buy them Tiffany's Pashmina's. Esp because Pashmina's are dated now and just known as wedding wear; they won't wear them again.

A $450 pashmina is not a good gift; its insane. Esp considering pashmina's are out of style now. If you insist on being stuck in the past check out the 100% cashmere ones at Nordstrom which are under $100. But I promise you most bridesmaids will never wear it again it would be best to not waste money.

All the fashion magazines agree-- pashimas are out of style.

But as a fashionista, I promise to wear them forever. There is nothing worse that going to an event in a cocktail dress in bloody ten degree weather and freezing all night.

Ouch, $450???!!! You are aware of how bad the economy is now, right? I want a little luxury for myself and my 'maids as much as the next bride, but this is outrageous and not a helpful recommendation for most brides. Don't forget we're not all made of money! $10 rayon wrap, here I come.

Maggie May,

Welcome to my blog!

As I said in my article, if you live in the city, I would get a pashima from a street vendor. There is also Benetton.

I put pashimas at various price points in the blog. I wouldn't be able to buy a Tiffany pashima for my bridesmaids (or myself!). It doesn't mean that I can covet it though!

Cheers,
Misse
