Building a Capsule Wardrobe by Starting with a shawl: Hermès l'Art du Temari

It might seem "out of season" to be thinking about a shawl, but it's well worth planning ahead in order to be prepared to wear this beauty.  Fifty-five inches square, and an almost sheer blend of cashmere and silk, these shawls can be worn as a light layer in even the warmest weather - never forget the blast of air conditioning in every restaurant this time of year.  Or use it to cover up during a long car trip...

  8. I'm really liking the color pairings here, epecially the last one's with those taupe colors. I always notice taupe booties but never knew what to pair them with besides winter white.
