I cannot tell you how much I am in love with this amazing sweater dress!!
It’s one of those pieces that has absolutely no hanger appeal – in fact, it has all the charm of a garbage bag when it’s not on a body! – but something made me take it into the change room when I saw it at Winners a few weeks ago. It might have been the dress’s cuddly softness…but I’m pretty sure it was actually these fabulous, fluffy, faux-mohair sleeves!!
Then when I tried it on, the shapelessness suddenly transformed into this really cool, modern silhouette; and so, of course, the dress ended up coming home with me!! Surprisingly, my husband really likes it, too – I guess the shorter length and more open neckline show the “perfect” amount of skin. I’ve paired it with my knee boots for a little more coverage today, and this wide-brim hat from Calvin Klein for just a touch of “seventies” chicness!!
What do you think…does a sweater dress always need to be form-fitting, or can an interesting shape be fun, too?!
P.S. Don’t forget to leave me a comment for a chance to win the bracelet giveaway I featured in the “Twelve Posts of Christmas”…details are in my November 28th blog post!!
