The Tiny Heart: Mere or Mink

1.16.2013

Mere or Mink



Cardigan-AE (similar), Top-Express (similar for $7!), Scarf-c/o FRAAS (here on Amazon), Jeans-Old Navy, Flats-Target (similar)

For some things, only the real deal will do: diamonds, nails, and Louis Vuittons. Sometimes though, the dupe is just as good as the original. This scarf is made out of Cashmink, which looks and feels like cashmere. But without the cashmere price tag (let's be real, I won't be dropping $100 on a scarf any time soon). You can get this one on Amazon for $10.99 and feel like a million bucks. Score!


Please note: I received this scarf for product review. However, the opinions expressed in this post are solely mine.

  19. helloooo Sharon! Cashmink is calling my name. Oh if only my wallet was listening?

    Yes my little Duchess Dog is loving the snow, but if she doesn't have to go out, she won't. I can tolerate the cold more that hot for a dumb reason, I guess.

    Your OOTD is really nice. That color combos look great on you. Here I thought the green from last week was nice, and now the red near your face is wonderful, too.

  20. I'm sooo going to need to check out that scarf on Amazon. It's so pretty!

  21. Love the pop of red against the b&w stripes top and the leopard flats, super cute! Cashmink sounds interesting... and it certainly looks soft and warm! I had never heard of it, but if it feels like the real deal I will have to give it a try. Thanks for the info, Sharon!

  22. Yes! I agree! If it feels the same, it works! And the price is way better! It looks nice on you too, it hangs nice and looks luxe!

  23. Maroon looks so great with black and white! In my book cashmere is overrated. If I have to take it to the dry cleaners, I'm not a fan. I have a "better than cashmere" scarf that I love.

    ReplyDelete
  24. $11? Awesome! It looks so soft and comfy too. Cute look Sharon!

  27. So agree with the real deal Sharon ! I love the red/burgundy/maroon scarf matched with the stripes and leopard. Good job girl. So cute.

  36. I just discovered that Amazon sold scarves about a week ago. You can imagine how happy I was. Love the $10 price tag. I'm with you, I'm not spending $100 on a scarf, I don't care how soft it is.

  44. hehehehehe.....I know what you mean. Some things you can't just take the dupe but with cashmink? I mean seriously why not. Cashmere scarves pill so bad and for $100+ you are better off saving your money.

  45. I totally agree, why buy a cow when milk is so cheap, right? You look great, Sharon!
