Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - It's raining, it's snowing, the cold winds are blowing! And those of us in the North East can't stop shivering. And my fellow New Yorkers know that with MTA budget cuts, we are going to be standing at the bus stop that much longer waiting for a bus, or shivering on the subway platform waiting for a train. I empathize fellow commuters I really do!

Staying warm and stylish has often proved to be quite a challenge! Job interviews in the middle of winter with a neon scarf and hat will draw attention; just might not be the kind of attention you were hoping for!

So how do you stay warm and still look good doing it AND on a budget? - Affordable Scarves that's how! Aside from an amazing selection, there is no scarf over $20 and that my dear readers INCLUDES Cashmere! I KNOW RIGHT!!! (I too had to see it to beleive it! But me being a skeptic is all the better for you, that's how I find the great buys/deals!!) And right now orders over $30 also get free shipping! Do you have someone hard to shop for? Need a quick or last minute gift idea for Valentines Day? Shopping for the woman 'who has it all'? Trust me, silk or cashmere scarves will never fail to impress!

And for the 'butterfly-de-resistance', yes I so made that up, but you've got to admit you love it! They have two butterfly scarves I am absolutely in love with. The first is the Butterfly Pashmina Wrap (don't those words sound fab together? 'Butterfly' and 'Pashmina'?!), check it out for yourself HERE. And the Linen Butterfly Scarf (this one was not available when I made my selection, drats!), this one is super stylish, delicate butterflies against a jet black background, picks up almost any color and looks fab with a suit, check it out HERE. (So ME!)

Scarves are an accesory that play up an outfit, aside from wearing them around your neck, they look super stylish when you wrap them loosely around the handle of your favorite handbag. They are a staple that allow you to take your basic suits and give them the right pop of color! Color in the workplace must be done the right way, and a beautiful silk or linen scarf is a great way to do it.

On a sunny spring day that turns into a crisp night, just pull your pashmina out of your handbag and go, no need to double back for a bulky jacket!
