Pretty sweater,

"With the help of a "Live Chat" assistant I was able to order the size which I thought would best fit me. I ended up ordering down 1 size than I might otherwise have based on my body measurements. I checked the measurements the "Live Chat" personnel gave me about the cardigan against a sweater in my closet that fits well. Based on that and another review, I'm happy with the fit!
I really like the oyster shell beadwork and small touches of glitter. Some of the silver glitter threads need trimming before I wear it as they have already come loose and are showing their ends on the front. I don't know how well they will last or if that's all they will need. Time will tell.
I imagined the sweater to be softer to the touch considering it has a 70% lambswool, 20% angora rabbit hair, and 10% nylon mix. It felt rather scratchy right out of the bag. It also had a slightly unpleasant odor. I'll give it some fresh air and possibly a wash before wearing if that lingers. The angora hair also gives it a slight pet hair look which some may not like.
Personally, I prefer 100% wool for warmth. I had a hard time finding a sweater this season online that looked sharp and appeared warm. This one seems to fit the bill. I think it will become a favorite and I look forward to wearing it. All in all, I'm happy with this purchase. It gets 4 stars due to the issues of odor and scratchiness."

"This cardigan has become my favorite. It goes well with just about any color skirt or pants I wear. It's stylish and very warm. The fit is just right; not too loose or tight."

"The sweater looked so pretty in the picture but it doesn't have much shape; it just sort of hangs and isn't very becoming. Also, the sparkly part looks white in the picture, but it has some blue and gray in it. This sweater seems to run big. I usually wear a 14 or 16 top and this size 16 was too large in the body and sleeves."
