This crazy forum has me convinced that I NEED the black mono shawl to wear to a wedding on Saturdaay. I called all three stores on my island and since there are none here they are shipping one over from another island. Before I buy it I need justification that I will get a lot of use out of it. So those of you who have one please tell me how useful it is and how much you LOVE it. By the way, this is what I am planning on wearing: Black spaghetti strap linen dress slightly shorter than tea length, black shoes, my SOPHIE bag, and the shawl. Don't you think the shawl will look fab with the Sophie? Boy oh boy, my husband is going to have me committed soon or pull the interet plug! LOL Oh, and thanks in advance!
