Our house is drafty so I get cold a lot. That usually means I get sick a lot too. This year I decided that I needed to buy something to help keep me warm and hopefully avoid a trip to the ER.
I thought about buying a sweater but the truth is cardigans really aren’t my style. When my grandchildren were little I wore a lot of Storybook sweaters because they enjoyed them. Now that they are in school, I feel a bit silly in some of them. Besides most of them were too big.
Consequently I decided to sell them on Ebay to collectors of Storybook Knits. Then I turned around and used the money I made there for Christmas and to buy something for myself that I knew I would wear.
I did a lot of searching before settling on anything. I can be picky when it comes to certain things.
However, I eventually did choose a beautiful knit wrap from supermodel Iman’s fashion line on Home Shopping Network (HSN). Her line, Global Chic, is usually cutting edge and beautifully constructed.
As I watched the presentation on air, I particularly loved how the wrap stayed around the shoulders of the models as they moved and turned. It didn’t fall down like so many others do.
I also fell in love with the bling factor. I’m definitely into any thing that sparkles.
The shawl is called the Luxury Sequin Wrap. It doesn’t; however, have big, bold gold or silver sequins all over it. Instead, it has clear sequins with a slight aurora borealis tint. That meant I could easily wear the wrap easily, day or night.
I absolutely love it. It is soft and luxurious to the touch, beautiful to look at and oh so very comfortable. It’s like having a cloud wrapped around your shoulders.
I feared the wrap wouldn’t really stay put as I’d seen on TV. However, I need not have worried. It is made in such a way that you can bend, move and twist and it won’t come off. In fact it won’t come off until you want it to. I love that!
Iman’s Sequin Luxury Wrap comes in several colors. These include black, blue, brown, gold, gray, purple and winter white. It also comes in red, although that color is temporarily out of stock.
It measures 48″ in length by 54″ in width with an additional 5″ fringe. It is shaped like a square.
Although the garment is made of 85% acrylic and 15 metallic, it does not itch like so many metallic fabrics do. It stays soft and cozy.
The piece is meant to be hand washed and laid flat to dry because of the sequins. However, Iman said it could be washed on gentle cycle inside of a lingerie bag.
The cost when I bought it was a lot less (about $20) because it was a Today’s Special Value. I also was able to pay for it over two months on flex pay.
Currently, the wrap retails for $69.95. That can be paid in two flex pays of $34.97 or three flex pays of $23.31.
The item number is 961-517. If you don’t want to pay full price right now, keep a look out for it on clearance when spring items begin to crop into the HSN warehouse. You may not be able to get your first choice of color but all of the colors are beautiful.
That is what I’m going to do because, after seeing and feeling the wrap for myself, I know it is something my mother will love. So she’s getting it for Christmas.
I highly recommend this beautiful wrap for a gift, for yourself or for a loved one. I don’t you’ll be disappointed.
