The Quality of Cashmere…

So much luxury from such a little goat!

Cashmere Goat - Selvege magazine Cashmere Goat - Selvege magazine

We can thank the Capra Hircus Laniger goat for giving us the incredibly soft, supple, sought-after fiber, cashmere. For over 10,000 years, this remarkable goat has been present in Central Asia, and is still thriving in the remote regions of the inhospitable uplands of Inner and Outer Mongolia, Afghanistan, and Iran.  The extreme weather conditions and the Cashmere Goat - Selvege magazinescarcity of water and vegetation on this arid countryside have forced these particular goats to adapt and survive on very little. It’s OK. They like it.

The extreme changes in temperature between day and night as well as the brutal harsh winters (sometimes 45 degrees below zero!) require the goats to grow a unique coat, providing warmth and protection. The long course outer hairs are the guard hairs. The underfleece, the fine soft silky hairs, six times finer than human hair, is called the duvet, pashm, or cashmere.  The colder the climate, the finer and warmer the undercoat.

In early spring when the goats moult, the Himalayan farmers comb the fine woolen undercoat from the neck and chest of goat, painstakingly separating the guard hairs from the sumptuous cashmere fibers. This de-hairing process is usually done mechanically but in some regions this process is still done by hand.

Foot Traffic Four Button Leg Warmers

We love legwarmers, especially now that the weather is changing and our cute little bare legs are cold!   I particularly love wearing my leg warmers with my skinny jeans, leggings, and tights.  With different colors and lengths, I can change any outfit and feel warm and still stylish, whether I am indoors or outdoors.

You may be in winter denial (yes, it is coming) and not ready to put away your shorts and short skirts but you will need to cover up on those cool crisp days of fall.  We love our new 4 button legwarmers because they are comfy and can be worn four different ways…

CORPORATE CULTURE AND PERSONAL STYLE

What Does Your Work Attire Communicate?

Whether you want to admit it or not, your clothing is a constant communication to those around you. Your outfit may say “casual chic” when you go out with friends, or it may say, “romantic” on a date night. Your style says different things about you, and there’s no place where getting that “message” right is more important, than at work.

Is your style position appropriate?

Every organization has a “style culture.” Dressing to fit into that culture does not mean you have to sacrifice style, but be aware that if you want to move up in your organization, dressing like the people in higher positions than you can demonstrate that you want to be one of them. Like my mother told me, “dress for the job you want, not the job you have.”Foot Traffic Perfect Pair Tights

How to “fit-in” without “selling out”

There are some interesting ways to style up your suits, skirts and dresses and still be in line with your organization’s style culture. How? With just a few variations of accessories such as belts, scarves and legwear.  Add color and texture to a business suit or sweater with an animal print belt, a patterned scarf, or a favorite accessory that reflects your personality.

Most organizations still encourage pantyhose and tights at the office because they create a clean, lean look that adds polish and class to your professional image. A staple in your work-wear closet should be a great pair of black tights.

SKIRTED LEGGINGS…

The perfect combination of leggings and a skirt in one piece!

One of my pet peeves is trying to align my tights or leggings with my underwear and my skirt.  That’s three waistbands to negotiate every time I move!  I am always “adjusting” to avoid those unsightly lines that show my not-so-perfect figure.  You know what I mean!

Foot Traffic Skirted Legging

To solve that problem, we have designed a very figure-flattering solid opaque legging and skirt combined. It is the perfect fashion piece as it combines two items into one so once you put it on, no more tugging and pulling! It is great to layer under your favorite sweater, jacket, or shirt. At the recent Accessories Show in Las Vegas, this item was a favorite of the buyers because it fits well, looks great, and the quality is outstanding. Hopefully, it will be a favorite of yours this fall and winter.

Well, here it is again—school.

Summer is behind you and it’s back to class. Your tan has faded, there’s a chill in the air, and the leaves are turning to shades of orange and red.

Rise and Shine! You may not look forward to dragging yourself out of bed, but you can look forward to wearing some of the fun new fall fashions. And, you can cleverly reinforce your current wardrobe with new seasonal items to transition from summer into fall. No need to give up the mini-skirt or shorts —just add some great leggings or tights and let your legwear transition your wardrobe.

You don’t have to sacrifice comfort, warmth and fashion for school.
