This is a beautiful, soft shawl in turquoise and black. It feels just wonderful, and when you read the label you can see why. It is made of pashmina and silk, and has a beautiful design woven into it.
The wikipedia article is very interesting, and I (just now) learned a lot from this article about this item. This one is a "wrap" or "stole" size.
I haven't used it too often; I have to find the right outfit for it. I attended a wedding this weekend, and noticed during that time that shawls and wraps are very popular for "dress-up."
Two other people got to dress up for the wedding as well. P was ring bearer. Check out the tux, the boutonniere, the patent leather shoes, and the watch! He loves to dress up!
C loves to dress up too. She was one of the flower girls. This is her with aunt J and me. (Mommy was standing to the side, pinning up C's hair, that is why we are holding her hands, to keep her still. It was so exciting!) Mommy and daddy were beautiful too, but I didn't get any pictures. I'm excited to see the photographer's pictures when they come out.
You could hear a collective "aw, how cute" when they walked down the aisle, and there were smiles on every face (except for a few that had tears!). It was a wonderful day. (The bride and groom were beautiful too, P and C's auntie and new uncle.)
