Hello. My name is Natalie Jobity, president of Elan Image Management, an image consulting firm. I'm going to show you today, how to wear a number of different fashion shawls. So, now I'm going to show you how to tie a pashmina. This pashmina is a fashion shawl, is a pretty standard fashion shawl. It's oblong in length and very long. So, I'm going to just show you on my model, Monique, how to tie the shawl, really just using it, using it like a scarf. So, I'm just going to make one little knot like that, and then you have a great little look that's stylish, adds a great pop of color and still just very, just very sassy and fun. So that's one way to wear a fashion shawl. Another way, I'm going to use a different shawl this time, is to wear it like the standard way, where you're pretty much wearing it to drape yourself. Monique can you put this on like over your arms? So, she's just going to show you, show it like a shawl, like draped over her shoulders, right, and arms. And so you can with a sleeveless dress, this is a great way to just provide a layer of warmth if it's cold, but also if it's something cocktail wear. She's not wearing cocktail wear right now. But if she were wearing cocktail wear, It's a great touch of pizazz and it covers your arms if you're, covers you about your arms. So, you could like move this up and down on your body, layer it over your arms. That is a great great way to wear a fashion shawl. Another great way with this particular shawl is to actually secure it with a pin. So, I'm going to just show you now how to secure the shawl with a pin. I'm going to drape it over her, and just kind of like create some kind of focal interest so it looks like it's intentionally done. And I'm going to go right behind her and I have this cute little butterfly brooch. Now, you can use any brooch that you like. I like butterflies, so that's why I have this butterfly brooch. But any brooch that suits your self sensibilities, that works fine. We're just going to pin the shawl at the corner and here we have just a pretty pretty look. And she has some added color with this scarf. It has a pattern that's more interesting, if you want to jazz up something that's pretty solid and simple and also get warmth in the evening, another great way to do that. Love it, she looks fabulous.
