Second-hand find: turquoise cashmere dress

It’s getting so cold. It’s almost time to dig out the winter jackets, not to mention gloves as my hands become red and dry after only a short walk outside.

And all I feel like wearing at the moment is warm wool  – like this cashmere dress (handmade in Nepal) bought in Chiswick last winter for 18 pounds.

Putting this on is like an incredibly soft embrace. The quality is quite amazing as I took a chance and chucked it in the washing machine (wool cycle) and it came out without having shrunk or changed one tiny bit.
