Starting with my favorite sweater of all time:
A Kiss of Cashmere
A kiss of cashmere adds a luxurious touch to this reversible top. Wear as a boatneck with the twist in back, or over a tank with the twist in front. From our collection of luxe feather-soft sweaters, dreamy to wear day to night.
I love the rich new colors for this year (I’ve already got the Black Orchid and Pale Plum, and they’re stunning). Whether you’re dressing up or chilling out, the Reversible Top has plenty of elegant drape in a lightweight sweater that you’ll find yourself going back to again and again. These versatile sweaters are perfect for late summer nights, air conditioned buildings, and everywhere in the fall and layered in the winter.
I currently own black, charcoal, heather grey, snow heather, ivory, pale plum, and black orchid. I get tons of compliments on these every time I wear them.
Dream Angels Open-front Cardi
38” from shoulder; hits above the knee Long-sleeve Drop shoulder with an open front Imported polyester/acrylic/nylon/mohair SEQUINS EVERYWHERE!
I was excited about this cardigan. It looks beautiful in the picture, all dramatically drapey and elegant. The reality was a serious let down. First, nowhere in the description does it mention the sequins that dot this cardigan from top to bottom. Some people love sequins and bling, but I find it generally looks trashy. That’s a personal taste thing, but one they should mention in the description.
Second, it looks cheap. This is a big distinction because the materials it’s made of aren’t cheap. It’s just something about the finish on the yarn that makes it look like something you’d buy at WalMart. It’s a bit glossy, and not at all as soft (color-wise) as it looks in the picture.
The length was fine for me, it comes down to my knees (I’m 5’5″), but–perhaps because I’m a DDD–the sides of the cardigan (which I got in a large because I wanted a giant cozy sweater) come nowhere near touching. If they’d added two inches in the width, it would have made a world of difference. It has no shape, and looks boxy, but without the extra fabric to at least relieve the boxiness with drape. It makes my shoulders look HUGE, and that’s not a problem I usually have.
The sweater is soft (it’s itchy out of the package, but with some wear, that will go away). It’s a little on the delicate side, but I expected that, given the materials it’s made of. Despite the instructions of cold wash, tumble dry, I would hand wash this baby and lay flat to dry.
If you don’t mind sequins, prefer long, shapeless cardigans that don’t close (or you have a very tiny frame and bust), and don’t mind the finish on the yarn, you will likely love this sweater.
