Am going to a ball on May 14th. Have dress, jewellery etc sorted.

Now I need something for the shoulders. Years of school prom experience have taught me that shawls+alcohol = lost. So this year I want a nice capey thingy although not in manner of superhero, more cool sophisticated twenty something.

I basically want something like this but in black...

Dress is traditional A-line ballgown in a blue/black shiny fabric.

Any other arm hiding but unloseable thingy suggestions are welcome.

Shame you dont want a shawl - I have a black and gold sparkly one you could borrow.

I have just gone through so many...although if I can't find anything I may have to take you up on the offer!

They had a furry type one in Monsoon a while ago, I dont know whether they still do them.

Yes, its beautiful, but the grey won't go with my dress

This comes in black but doesn't show how it fastens.

Oooh sorry, was distracted, they are beautiful! I am going back into town on Monday, so I hope I will find something, although I am debating ordering the kaledescope one anyway!

Despite my better judgement I went into town today and bought a beautiful embriodered SHAWL from acceszorise.

This is the shawl and my dress if you are interested!
