Portolano Women’s Light Heather Grey Cashmere Ruffle Wrap. Softer-than-soft cashmere, cascading ruffle edges, and much more chic than that stashed office blanket. I might as well pick up two, because my little sister definitely won’t be sharing.

The Get Gifty: Our Holiday Gift Shop Boutique is now open.

From putting off laundry day to flowers even I am not capable of killing, here’s a look at all the lovely things I’ll be snapping up off of Rue this week.

1. Maggie by Magaschoni cashmere dress. Staying comfy-casual has always been my preferred code of dress (we’re talking since before first steps were taken), and this cashmere number totally counts as looking smartly put-together, while feeling entirely lounge-y. Our Maggie by Magaschoni Boutique opens Monday, October 22, at 11AM ET.

2. NDI Florals bouquet. “Taking care of living creatures” may not top the list of things I’m fantastic at, so these faux florals are just the bouquet for me. Our NDI Florals Boutique opens Thursday, October 25, at 11AM ET.

3. Brookstone® earbuds. My surest of travel companions this holiday season? Screaming babies. Loads of them. While these surround-sound earbuds were specifically engineered to protect my eardrums, it’s safe to say they’ll be preserving my sanity, too. Our Brookstone® Boutique opens Tuesday, October 23, at 11AM ET.

4. Amrita Singh necklace. Bib necklaces will forever set my heart racing. Same with mixed-media. Perhaps a just-in-case medic should be on the scene when this glorious piece arrives? Our Add Some Spice: Hues with Heat Boutique opens Saturday, October 27, at 11AM ET.

5. Honeydew Intimates boyshorts. There’s no better way to put off laundry day than by buying new underthings. Our Honeydew Intimates Boutique opens Thursday, October 25, at 11AM ET.

I’m a firm believer that cashmere is appropriate for almost every occasion – from Sundays on the couch (slouchy cashmere sweater, please) to Thanksgiving dinner at the in-laws (sweater dress? Check!). So you can bet I was excited to discover our Life in Cashmere Boutique. With styles for men, women, kids, and home, it’s a cashmere lover’s dream – and absolute proof that all walks of life can use a luxe, buttery soft boost.

From mini sweaters for baby to slippers so comfy they won’t be coming off, here are my picks for how to live life surrounded by this gloriously addictive fabric.

Lord & Taylor: Cashmere By Numbers

There’s something kind of nostalgic about slipping on a cashmere sweater from Lord & Taylor’s in-house label. The timeless pieces are perfect for stocking up on season after season, and keeping as lifetime favorites. Just pair with sleek riding boots and dark denim, and the result falls perfectly between effortless and ultra polished. As an ode to the super-soft sweaters, we’re counting up the reasons we love to put them on. In this Boutique:

2-ply cashmere makes for sweaters that are luxurious, lightweight, and durable.

3 timeless staples including the cardigan, shell, and V-necks.

6 polished patterns come to life in crisp stripes and classic argyles.

10 on-trend shapes like draped asymmetrical pullovers, open-front cardigans, and cropped shrugs.

21 colors from subtle neutrals and autumnal shades to bold brights and pastel prints.

Endless outfit options.

Our Cashmere Sweaters By Lord & Taylor Boutique opens Friday, September 9, 2011 at 11AM ET.
