It was a cold December when I got married a few years ago, so I splashed out on a gorgeous pashmina. It was £100 if I remember correctly.
Since then I have used it so so so so so much. Its lovely on a chilly summer day/evening to just have something to wrap around your shoulders.
Has been great on long haul flights to keep you snug.
Is also nice to wrap around you when snuggling up in front of the tv. They are really a brilliant buy!!I love them. They just work with anything.

These are lovely - I have two. An ordinary one and a water one that I bought last week for a wedding. V reasonable prices and gorgeous. Good service too. Think they may be addictive though: I have a new need for pashminas in lots of different colours!

there's a great shop on great portland street, just near oxford circus which sells hundreds and is very reasonable (but not so cheap that they're made of polyester!), think it's called kimko or something similar. at the junction with mortimer st anyway.
