the pashmina

So, last year my mom had surgery to repair her collar bone with a metal plate and then to repair her neck and upper back with more metal screws and plates.  She's doing really good now, but because of all that metal in her, she now gets really cold in AC.  She asked if I had any ideas and I immediately said, "Yes, a pashmina."

My mom asked me, "What is a pashmina?"

I said, "It's a long rectangular scarf or wrap that you wear in a variety of ways around your shoulders."

"Oh," she said.  "I think you're going to have show me how to wear it."

"Okay, maybe I'll do a post on how to wear a pashmina," I said.

So, Mom this is for you. Hope this helps you and others out there who need a little help with how to wear a pashmina.

I like the basics of this one video.

This one is funny with a guy model, but the shop owner knows what he's doing.

Hopefully mom does watch theses little clips. But you know she is still going to have you show her how to wear one.:):)
