Hi. I thought of posting this in The Powder Room, but I didn't want to intrude. At any rate, I thought I'd ask advice from the ladies and men in the know. I have a very close friend. We're not in a relationship, really, but very close, and we have exchanged small gifts for birthdays and the like. I wanted to get her something small and special for Christmas, and just happened to think that a cashmere scarf would be perfect. So... First of all, think I'm in my right mind? Also, cashmere seems to be either surprisingly cheap or eye-wideningly expensive. Is there a good quality scarf that will last for a long time, but that's still within the acceptable-from-a-very-close-friend price range? And would it be better to go vintage? She's not into vintage, really, but she is very fashion-conscious. Finally, any tips on where to shop? Thank you.
