Romeo & Juliet Couture Shawl Cardigan Vest

I'm so excited! And I just can't hide it!

A big THANK YOU! to Elle! :) After a long work week, I came home on Friday to my package from Elle's reader appreciation giveaway. It was a pleasant surprise! Elle even wrapped it (see below)! The cats love anything new, so they were all over it! They got a special treat out of it, too...a pretty blue ribbon to play with (again, see below).

I do not own a shawl, and am thrilled to have this new piece added to my closet! I am in love with it! It keeps my neck so unbelievably warm! I love that the length in the back is cropped, so that it does not overwhelm a petite body. This will definitely be going with me to Seattle this month.

My husband and I had dinner plans on Sunday night, so of course I put together an outfit with the shawl. But before we left for dinner, we had some dog sitting duties to attend to at my in-laws, so you will get to meet Holly in the pics below. The other three were too busy rolling and snorting around on the couch. Lol!

Love the details!

Little Girl is interested in the package. That's the new rug I bought from Ballard last month

Littlest Girl went nuts for the ribbon!

Thanks again, Elle!! :)

    @Elle She's a she. :) She has been dragging it all over the house! I got home from work and found it on the bed!

    @AubreyOhDang! Yes! I did see Kelly wearing the necklace. It is very noisy, so I do not wear it on really quiet classwork days!

    @SewPetiteGal Thanks! It makes me even happier that I picked up the necklace from LOFT for around $10-15!

    @PetiteXXS Thanks! The temperature dropped a bit today, so I wore the same top half to work, but with a dark trouser-jean-type-material skirt.

  18. I'm giving an amazing jeweled cuff away as a Christmas gift. you should enter it. its open to everyone worldwide!:)
