If its good quality, I would get it.

I really like the white one, I think it would be sharp in the summer!

The material is polyester and acrylic. I'd be concerned about it holding up over time. Now if it was made of cashmere or some other natural material I think it would be a good deal.

For that price I assumed it would be. Cashmere is worth every penny. Soft, warm and breathable Mmmmm

I agree, but I'm not sure that the style of that particular sweater is going to hold up over time so there doesn't seem to be much of a need for it to be durable - I am quite sure that those sweaters are going to look like really dated trends in a couple of years.

They already kind of do. I have a few in my closet I don't wear so much anymore. I have one cashmere one I take on trips with me to cuddle up in though.

Agreed - was just responding to the comment about durability. I see this as a trend that if you like it for now or are curious about trying it out, $36 is not a bad price.

I have one of those (not exactly), I like to cuddle up in it at home, but would never wear in public. I wouldn't personally pay $36 for something I only wear at home, but that's just me.

Actually I just found out over the weekend I bought a couple last year from Arden B on sale(20 and 15 but woulda paid more) that are simiar in black. I forgot I bought them.

Totally worth it for me because I'm always cold and I wear black with everything. They are also partially wool and very warm and thin at the same time. I usually wear them with shorter dresses in the winter with my boots. I wear them with jeans too and a tshirt when I've run out of clean sweaters.

I don't think I'm getting it after all. It's nice and a great color. But I'm just not feeling it. And if I feel this way before I buy something, I generally don't wear the item often and end up giving it away. So I'll save my money for something I really like.

At least one of us made a purchase! I also realized after looking back at your sweater I got something of a similar color, which is good because I don't have anything that color.
