Laduree is known for their macarons...How fortunate.  I happen to love them love looking at them.  I do not by nature croon for macarons.  But I have become quite fond of them none the less.

Are you cold?  Then why not throw a throw around your neck? Perfectly normal.  Actually this was a funny concept that thread through the shop last year.  Two of our linen companies made a throw that was also a wrap.  Cashmere or wool anyone?  And let me say, the ladies had a hard time wrapping their heads around this one!
