One Pashmina, Two Pashmina…

I’ve had a yearning for a pashmina (or two, or five!) but I definitely don’t want to pay the high price they are usually sold at.  I decided I’d try a couple from ebay since they can be had at a steal!

 

I ordered the gray one from seller zenjen and it is a pashmina/silk blend to make it extra soft.  The peachy colored one is from seller tmserwin  and I purchased it for even less than the gray.  It is 100% pashmina but still soft and has a sheen to it.  To be perfectly honest, when they each arrived I was a little unimpressed with them… expecially  to see them flattened in the plastic bags.  After a gentle hand washing, they both fluffed up and smelled nice and I am very pleased with both (although the gray is my fav)!  The more expensive gray one is a bit thicker/warmer so I think I’ll stick with that seller for basic colors or ones I plan to wear often.  I’ll probably order trendier colors from tmserwin though since I’d rather not invest as much in a color I may not wear for long.  I have one more cream colored one on the way so I’ll update when I receive it! new-pashminas
