Giveaway & Review: Pashmina Shawl from [CLOSED]

Recently I was given the opportunity to try out a shawl/pashmina from I have never owned a shawl, so I wasn’t really expecting anything too glamorous. They changed my expectations.

When I pulled the pashmina out of the package the first thing I noticed was how soft and silky it is. It feels so luxurious; I didn’t want to put it down. It’s very well made and the fringe doesn’t appear to be in danger of coming off. I’ve used it several times either as a shawl covering for a dress for more formal occasions, as a “jacket” over a tank top at more casual events, and also as a decorative scarf and every time it looked great and even got me some comments on how pretty and soft it was.

I haven’t washed it yet, as I haven’t needed to and probably won’t for a while, but I would imagine it’s hand wash only. I don’t know how well it would hold up in a washer but I wouldn’t try. Plus, machine washing might ruin its silkiness.

I will definitely be hitting up again in the near future for more pashminas and to try out some of their other products. They carry many beautiful items such as hair clips, headbands, fashion accessories, pony holders, banana clips and more.

Thank you to for sending us a sample shawl free of charge to base this review upon.
