"Beautiful, well made. Color not true to photo"

I was expecting a sand beige color as shown, but the actual color is darker, a light brown much like a cardboard box. Love that it is a wool blend so I can home wash on gentle cycle instead of dry clean. Very heavy and warm. Will go with many outfits despite the darker color.

"great colors and fabric"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I wear this often in the car when I go early in the morning. It is a heavier weight and doesnt snag my earrings as it is tightly woven. Love the color, very flattering and the coral stripe gives it warmth and sensuality. I am blonde and this looks amazing on me, especially with a coral colored lipstick.
