(ª 'lis). noun [usu. as object]
is a lacey mink & cashmere stole, warm and yet almost weightless. We were mesmerised by the stole Elise, the lead character in the movie, The Tourist, wears draped around her elegant shift dress while artfully evading the police in the opening scene. Elise is a basic rectangle shape knit with a relatively simple lace pattern, and then fastened with your favorite brooch.
