    When I was going through the roadside assistance plan, a friend called and asked me if I know where she can find nice cover-ups.  She will be attending her sister’s wedding dinner next month and has found a very nice dress to wear.  However, she wants her shoulders to be covered and has problem finding a nice cardi or jacket.  I went online and found a few beautiful boleros.  I hope my friend would like them.
