Where can I buy a ruana (cape/cloak/shawl like garment)?

I recently discovered ruanas, which are like a cross between a cape and a shawl. It goes around your shoulders and drapes over your arms or you can toss the end back over your shoulder for more coverage. I know my aunt purchases hers at www.lanebryant.com, but I cannot find anywhere else that sells them! Can anyone recommend a good store that sells these fabulous garments for a reasonable price??

Thanks for your help!

    I've been eyeing some of these myself at a place called "Cato's"... they're $20-$40 a piece. I'm not sure if there's one in your area though. I've seen similar items at Target... but I can tell you that NY&CO (the sister store to Lane Bryant, NY & CO runs all the sizes under a 14 or so) has them! And finally, as always, you can find tons of different styles and prices on eBay. But if you want to see/try it in person, I'd understand that :) I'll include links, of course.

    Btw... if you're feeling crafty, you could definitely knit or sew your own, too. There are some really decent-looking patterns out there.

And, of course, Ebay: http://shop.ebay.com/items/__ruana_W0QQ_nkwZruanaQ...
