Rated 4 out of 5┬áby MaryinNY NOT SURE THE HOOD IS A GOOD IDEA
Ordered XSP, my usualy size, and is tts. However, the sleeves only have room for light layering underneath. The material of the cardi is of good quality, soft but not sagging, that seems to hold up the shape and contruct of the cardi well. The navy/ivory weaving pattern design is classy, distinct but not over the top. The cardi could be more versatile in that it could be easily deressed up or down and as a layer over a light T or sweather or a layer underneath a winter coat except that the large chuncky hood hanging low at the back is getting in the way. The hood renders the cardi a more casual attire, undermining the classy weaving pattern disign and the beatiful anchoring tassels on the cardi. It makes wearing a winter coat over the cardi awkward. The hood adds costs to the cardi without ehancing value and beauty.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Kitsy Beautiful Sweater!
This sweater details are lovely with the button closures on both the inside and outside and then on the outside the buttons are accented with the tassle. It is quite a heavy sweater and is more like a sweater coat. The fit is very nice. I took a Medium and it fit fine - I am usually a Medium or large in sweaters/tops and size 30 in jeans. The navy blue is quite vibrant and it's really unique looking.

This is more of a sweater coat. Classic design that will last for many seasons. The pom poms add a distinctive touch. I have been waiting for my local store to get this in...yeah it finally came in. I love sweater coats and look for a standout each season...and this was it! It is on trend and classic at the same time. Love the contrast of the solid navy hood. I am tall and at times I have to size up to have a proper sleeve length...usually between a S or M. I went with the small, sleeves were great..the M was too baggy thru the body.
