cashmere + the crème de la crème

Recently, Bebe offered me and 8 other stylish bloggers the opportunity to participate in a contest where we each got to style one of their incredibly soft cashmere sweaters. Not normally being a red person, I picked red - makes sense, right? I'm so glad I did. It's a very rich color and I feel like my wardrobe could use some color right now. Pretty perfect for the coming holiday season, too. Check out all of the looks here (I'm sure you'll see some familiar faces :-).

These are my first Pradas and, I have to say, they're built like sports cars. Or at least I'm guessing they are from the way my husband talks about them (sports cars, not the shoes).  I don't know very much about cars, but I imagine if one could wear a pair of Ferraris, it would feel like this. I also love the bows because they look like whiskers.

the fit on this outfit is perfect for your long lean figure. You look gorgeous!

I had a pair of Prada shoes for years. after replacing the heals twice and the inner lining once, I finally donated them.

I really, really like how you styled your cashmere sweater. It's so pretty. I saw them on sale at Filene's Basement a while ago and I am kind of regretting not scooping up a couple.

i love that you decided to go bold, sometimes you just need a bit of bright red in your life!
