Holiday Gift Guide | Cashmere Boutique Review

A minimum of once a month, I can be found at the theatre, enjoying a live performance of a musical, stage play, variety show, or concert. I have always felt it’s appropriate to dress up to attend these sort of events, even though these days most people just show up wearing jeans and T-shirts. My friend and I spend a little time discussing what we are going to wear so one of us isn’t more dressed up than the other, and then we have a great time that night.

One thing we’ve noticed, though, is that the seats are really small, and now that it’s winter time it’s uncomfortable to sit there for hours in the tiny seat with a big winter coat crammed into the limited space as well.

This is where Cashmere Boutique has been a godsend. They should be your only stop for all things cashmere; you will get quality at affordable prices. I never thought I would ever own anything made of such a fine material, but at wholesale prices, the average consumer receives both quality and a wholesale price.

Cashmere Boutique sent me a Cashmere & Silk Pashmina Wrap in Lilac, which will perfectly complement any of the black dresses I usually wear to the theatre. It measures 28 X 30 inches, and is a blend of silk (30%) and cashmere (70%). It is absolutely perfect as a stole for one of my dresses; even though it’s light, it is surprisingly warm and will keep me from freezing on my way from the parking lot to the theatre doors. I can leave my heavy winter coat in the car and enter the theatre in comfort and style. The pashmina wrap will fold up nicely if I don’t want to wear it around my shoulders in the theatre, or I could spread it across my legs if they become cold. Either way, it will not take up the huge amount of space that my winter coat would at the theatre.

Since I have never owned an item like this before, I had no idea how to take care of it when it would need to be cleaned. There is a section on the site devoted to informing shoppers on how to care for these items, and I was pleased to see that cleaning is something I can do at home for my Cashmere & Silk Pashmina Wrap.

In addition to pashminas, Cashmere Boutique also offers robes and pajamas, sweaters, coats, and even throws and blankets. I would personally be thrilled to receive anything from Cashmere Boutique this holiday season. If you’re at a loss of what to get your loved ones this year, Cashmere Boutique has something for everyone.
