Baby It's Cold Outside

As a six-year veteran of the Windy City, I've accumulated a lot of scarves.  Thin ones, thick ones, cheap ones, not-so cheap ones, black ones, blue ones and pink ones of course, but the ones that get the least use are the lightweight ones.  It always makes me sad that my favorite blue faux pashmina rarely gets out of my winter accessories box.  (He's very jealous of Mr. Burberry for many reasons, and not just for his cashmere content...)  But, I think I just found the blue guy a new home!  

Eddie Ross, an amazing designer, blogger and seeker of all things fabulously vintage, took such a lowly faux pashmina and included it in the 2010 Bloomingdale's Big Window Challenge!  His window for Elle Decor magazine is AMAZING - and behind the pile of perfectly-placed pillows on the neutral sofa, he placed a magenta pashmina.  I love the stripe it created in contrast to the pillows and the fringe, oh, the fringe!  Isn't fringe fun?   You can vote for Eddie here.  And you can see my attempt to copy him right here!

(And yes, this is what I do at 11 p.m. after small group.  I come home after a long day of work, working out and studying the book of Ruth to play with pashminas and take 10 shots of my sofa until I get just the right one!)
