OK, so here's a picture of the fabulous knitted mink (yes, KNITTED mink) vest/shawl in "teal". Now, for those of you that know Merge, and me, know that I believe when you have a expensive statement piece in your wardrobe, I believe you should buy it in a neutral color. Why? So. It. Lasts. For. Years.
To that end, I purchased this piece for Merge in classic brown mink. The picture shows the vest cocked to the side and worn as a shawl. You can also where it "halter style" around the neck as a backless vest. Casual lux (my favorite thing ;-))
