Fraas Fall 2013 Collection: Reversible Scarves



(New York, NY/Wüstenselbitz, Germany): Over the years, season after season, scarves and wraps have been adorning the outfits of celebrities, trendsetters and fashion leaders. Scarves are adding the excitement of an eye-catching accessory to every look from jeans to dresses, and wraps and have become the new year-round outerwear. As the leading company in this

category, FRAAS builds a collection that amazes and impresses its clientele collection after collection. "The Fall and Holiday line offers many unique and dazzling options for the marketplace and we are experiencing very positive feedback,” says Ken Krieger,

VP of Sales for the innovative international manufacturer and marketer of woven and knit scarves, capes, ponchos, stoles, ruanas, wraps and gloves. “Designing unique, striking products for many different tastes, budgets and climates has always been a priority for us at FRAAS,” adds Aimee Zucchetti, Brand and Sales Manager for the company. “We love helping consumers update their wardrobe with fresh and exciting products."

The newest FRAAS line features distinctive styling that updates and/or coordinates with existing wardrobes as well as the up-to-the minute fashion. There are a variety of yarns and techniques so that every climate and preference is properly addressed. Retails range from $26-$100, giving the customer plenty of affordable options. There is no other fashion accessory that makes such a strong and long lasting fashion statement at this price point! Scarves are the savviest accessory for both gift and self purchase and with so many available sizes, color ways and shapes, one can create a distinctive look with the way it is tied or layered and matched with an outfit. Some do double duty and can be used as a shawl or scarf and can be discreetly packed for travel or dining...even a cool office. Wraps and related products such as the ruana, cape, poncho or stole silhouette are a big story going forward and work alone, as a layering component, or as outerwear. Consumers also love the ease of the infinity silhouette; therefore several options have been included for 2013.

FRAAS is on the mark with its color palette and trends which include COUNTRY ETIQUETTE (rich autumnal shades),

NOUVEUX GENERATION (including many pop colors and bold looks) and PALACE GRANDEUR (an embellished and opulent story). In these trends, brights, mid-tones and neutral shades mix and match into pure perfection. Yarns (woven and knit options) include Cashmink(TM), acrylic, modal, viscose, cotton, poly, wool and cashmere. Patterns and accents include touches of metallic, updated plaids, unusual animal prints, elegant abstracts, florals, color blocking and ombre effects, menswear with a twist, geometrics, dots and stripes. Digital prints are gaining popularity and reversible styles appeal to many consumers due to their flexible styling. Novelty techniques such as unusual fringe, crinkling, gathering, open work, scrunch, boucle and loops adorn select styles. Velvet is also back on the scene and looks super rich. 060607 is an ideal style to celebrate the new Fall season. It reverses so that two distinctive looks are possible and comes in four flattering shades, petrol, dark red, purple and black. It is a super-soft mix of viscose and acrylic and 14 x72 inches. Affordably priced at $40, it is an excellent style for gifting or self purchase. From its bases in New York, Paris, London, Wüstenselbitz, Toronto and Shanghai, FRAAS' parent company V. Fraas’ design teams—one of which is dedicated entirely to the FRAAS brand—travel to major shows and forecasting seminars throughout the globe to identify new trends and develop products that are perfectly attuned to fashion and customer demand. The 5th generation/130-plus year old company’s research team, meanwhile, works busily to develop and discover new yarns, fabrics and methods for manufacturing products that are of outstanding quality. Truly internationally oriented, the company boasts sales subsidiaries and satellite offices in New York, Toronto, London, Paris, Berlin, Denmark, Italy, India, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo.

I received the purple Fraas reversible scarf for my reviewing pleasure. I love the fact they are reversible. Definitely two awesome ways to wear it, for two totally different looks. I'm so digging that. I love the feel of this scarf. Its soft and warm. I can't wait for it to get a little cooler here in Florida so I can sport this beauty.

*Thanks to Lipton Publicity for the opportunity to review this Fraas scarf. The thoughts expressed are simply my own. No other compensation was provided , besides this product to review.

♥Happy 1st Birthday Snails Children's Nail Polish Gift Pouch (5 winners) USA & Canada-9/28

SNAILS (Safe Nails!), the first French-made chemical-free kids nail polish that we have created. It all started when a mum of two scoured the market for safe non-toxic nail polish to colour up the imaginative play of her little ones. She quickly found that such a product just didn't exist — so SNAILS was born.

Some highlights of SNAILS:

Revolutionary three-ingredient formula — containing just water, acrylic polymer and non-toxic colorants, SNAILS is safe in its simplicity.

Totally water soluble — SNAILS washes off easily with simple soap and water, making harsh solvent-based remover a thing of the past.

Environmentally friendly — from biodegradable packaging and lead-free bottles, to a strict no animal testing policy.

Hypoallergenic — SNAILS is purely chemical, Paraben and toxin free, so little nails are kept safe, sound and splendidly colored.

Vivacious color choices — every SNAILS polish delivers glorious high-quality gloss and deliciously gentle fragrance.

♥ I still remember when I was a little girl, I use to love playing with nail polish. I even use to paint my dad and brother's toe nails. Hehe. They were such good sports. The only disadvantage was that it was time consuming to remove it. Regular nail polish is meant to stay on. And in order to remove it, you need to use stinky, harsh chemicals such as nail polish remover. For us grown-ups, that's no big deal. But for your little ones, wouldn't it be so much easier, and safer if it could just come off with water? Well the good news is, with SNAILS it can! I was sent the red and pink SNAIL nail polish for my reviewing pleasure. The colors are really pretty. Just be prepared when you go to wash your hands. Don't find out the hard way like I did. It comes off! lol. It was everywhere. But no worries, they have product for that type of situation, such as wipes to remove it.

♥Eco Fabrik- Bamboo Towel Set Giveaway! (2 Winners) USA-9/21

Bamboo Bath Towels:
Meticulously crafted from 70% Bamboo Fiber and 30% best Quality Cotton, these bamboo towels are luxuriously soft and super absorbent. Our "Luxury Collection” bath towel will make you feel fresh & fabulous after every shower. This Bath Towel measures approximately 27.5" X 54". Bamboo Towels are also the most earth friendly towels you can buy, because bamboo is by far the fastest growing renewable natural resource among fabrics and is harvested without using conventional cotton growing methods. Amazingly, bamboo is significantly more absorbent than cotton and feels extremely soft compared to cotton towels.

Eco Fabrik Bamboo Bath towels are super soft, extra absorbent and Eco friendly. What more can you ask for? These towels are made out of bamboo fibers and cotton. Neat right? I didn't even know that a towel could be made out of bamboo fiber. But sure enough, these are. I first though a towel made out of bamboo must be hard or itchy. No, no even close. These are honestly the softest towels I have ever felt. I wouldn't feel bad about drying off a baby with these towels at all. Simply because they are just so much softer than most traditional towels. I would strongly suggest giving bamboo towels a try. You will be pleasantly surprised and satisfied.
