wanted it especially for a white beaded cocktail dress. I like that it is short as I am not very tall, I am also slim & some capes/shawls drown me! I have not worn it out yet but expect to soon & so long as there is not fur loss, I shall be delighted. the service & quick delivery was excellent, although I do not know the total in £'s & shipping was a little expensive. would love to see some hand muffs & fur trimmed gloves with silk lining. thank you.
