Hello I am image consultant Susan Bigsby at I would like to show you how to wear a pashima. What is a pashima? We have been seeing them now for a few years, and they have been worn in the middle east forever. They are beautiful, beautiful lightweight silken cashmere shawl. You can buy them in several sizes, and you can buy them from small sizes to very, very large sizes. This is my favorite form of an airplane blanket. They fold up to nothing, and you can carry them in the smallest place in your bag, and your warm as toast any time you are on an airplane. And they are very elegant when you fold them out to wrap yourself when it is chilly outside. This is one of my favorite colors, and they come in many, many, many colors. You wrap them around, you can just wear them over your shoulders if you want just for a little bit of added warmth. Or if you wanted to wear them a little bit more elegantly, which is always lovely, and they are a little bit warmer that way. You want to extend one of the ends a little bit longer. Maybe one third to two thirds in length, and then you will throw that length up over the shoulder, and it is just beautiful. You don't want to fuss with it too much, because it needs to look elegant, and it needs to look a little bit more casual. What you can also do is simply flip the ends so you are a little bit more wrapped up, and it makes for a lovely shawl. And a nice accent piece to whatever it is you are wearing. This has been Susan Bigsby, thanks for watching.
