Goose Pond

A little something to warm you up on a crisp fall day or when the boss hasn't figured out how to turn down the air conditioner.

Use it as a lap blanket or something to snuggle around you and your sweetie to keep slightly toasty at the game, pair it with jeans and a sweater or an elegant dress and make everyone think you're oh-so-stylish and talented with this simple tweedy lace wrap.
