This is a perfect evening shawl that will be great with an elegant dress or with a casual day outfit turned to an evening outfit. The shrug is made of a lovely fabric. The shawl / shrug will look stunning on a wedding dress, bridesmaid dress or mother of the bride, as well. It folds small and is light weight so easy to take along with you in your purse. The fabric is lace which gives it a great fall and look. And a great soft feel. The shrug is a batwing fit with 3/4 sleeves.
