Beauty & Warmth together in one stunning piece!
When a shrug is too pedestrian, but a lacy shawl is too light, this is a lovely compromise of historic proportions. Based on the painting of Alexandra Amalie von Bayern by Karl Stieler
3 layers of lace worked onto a merino body create a structure that stays put, and adds a beautiful amount of warmth right at the shoulders.
Lovely over a sleeveless dress or tank top, this one garment can make any outfit memorable and special. Great for winter parties or chilly summer evenings.
