Lust Object: Cashmere

So, have I ever told you that I’m allergic to cashmere? Practically the moment it touches my skin, I break out into hives. You don’t know how many times I’ve lamented over my inability to wear it, especially when I see a beautiful scarf like this Neiman Marcus number. Not only am I allergic to cashmere, but I can’t wear wool either. It makes shopping for sweaters a wee bit challenging to say the least.

In the grand scheme of things, my little allergy is by no means a tragedy. I am beyond blessed with good health, a loving hubs and my darling little dude…but I do still wish that I could rock cashmere. Haha! I’ll just have to leave vicariously through you!

If you want this scarf as much as I do and you’re in the Tampa Bay area, consider heading over to the Neiman Marcus at International Plaza and Bay Street on September 8, so you can enjoy a fabulous evening out, in addition to a little shopping!

    I’m sorry to hear you are allergic to cashmere. That is such a shame, not only because it is so beautiful in fashion, but because it is one of the most comfortable materials in the world…

    I am allergic to wool as well, which can be a bit of a hassle when shopping for a coat or sweater. :S

    But you live in Tampa, right? I suppose being allergic to those materials would not be so bad then. I realize winters can be cold, but for the most part, the weather is nice, if I remember correctly. At least you aren’t allergic to swimsuit material! ;)

    I’ve always thought cashmere and wool were itchy, but the itchiest piece of clothing I think I’ve worn for fashion’s sake was pantyhose, which I wore for years. That scarf is pretty, though. Have fun on your vacay!

    I completely understand, certain knits like angora blends tend to irritated my skin, although I don’t think I’m allergic because I can do cashmere and merino. Luckily silk never gives me a problem so lately I’ve been collecting silk scarves.

    I must say that is a tragedy. Not on the hurricane, poverty level but cashmere is oh so lovely. The mornings are starting to get a little chilly here. I’m dreading the fact that I will have to start bringing out the scarves.

    I suppose the good thing about that is that you won’t break your budget buying sweaters! Thank goodness for cotton though–I love a soft cotton sweater. It’s almost as good (and even better if it means saving your skin!).
