I went to all the sites suggested and was very impressed with what I saw.
I methodically went through and perused the options....
considered the styles, sizing, cost, value, quality and return policies.
One site in particular that was very informative was Pure Cashmere, if you have a few moments you might like to see their great site.

I prefer to buy Petite sizes when I can because they fit better. I am short and I do not like rolling up the cuffs several times and if the length of the garment is too long it looks oddly sloppy on my frame.
Land's End offers a Petite size in cashmere and as was pointed out by frugal scholar they had a 30% off and free shipping offer on their site.
I took the plunge and ordered a cardigan in....
you might have guessed...
you can see the classic style here.
I am not a fashionista, simply a grown woman who likes to dress in an understated manner. One that suits my no nonsense personality, a look that has taken me years to figure out. Mother nailed her look back in her mid 20's, she has a serious fashion gene, which BTW my lovely daughter inherited.
I, on the other hand, have blundered through life trying to figure this out and in the past few years I can say that I have finally found it!
I am more content with fewer clothes, opting for classics in a basic palette that revolves around black.
Grey has wormed it's way into the closet, and in a big way.
It works so well with my pared down wardrobe and seems to have added a touch of elegance.
I already have one of Land's End's crew neck sweaters
the cashmere is sturdy, warm, and I am happy with the quality.
Mind you, it is a few years old and Land's End may have changed the mill or the source of their cashmere so I am hoping for the best.
Made in Madagascar!
I never noticed that until now.
It has a few pills...
I'll need to find my sweater comb and de pill this one.
Here's what I am wearing on this grey day...
Mee Too silver flats
Joe white tank top
Land's End grey cardigan
necklace made by me
It's a chilly Fall day and I have finally given in and put the furnace on...
how's the weather where you live?
