"Such a fun, unique item for cool days"

Its as pretty as shown, and more on the medium weight side, which is perfect for cool, summer evenings and Fall days. I havent had a chance to wear it yet, but have tried it on and love it. Love the addition of the shawl collar and the zipper. I think Ill get a lot of use out of it.

"Perfect gloves"

These gloves were so soft. They kept me so toasty warm throughout the Wisconsin winter. They pair well with my navy blue winter beanie. Got many compliments on them.

"This Color Just Pops"

I love throws. Theyre so useful and even when not in use, look lovely on a sofa or the foot of the bed. The gorgeous color of this soft throw is a big plus. Wherever its placed, it will add warmth and style to your home. Its beautifully woven with a subtle pattern, and very soft, yet warm. It can be used as a shawl or draped over your legs. Its in my den, now, and I enjoy this throw every day when Im watching TV or reading.
