Not wearing tights to Thanksgiving dinner when it's spitting snow? Bad idea, guys. However, this is the second Thanksgiving in a row that I have worn this dress/sweater combo, and I think it's pretty effective. Although you can't see how amazing this dress is, there's a lovely, nipped waist, boatneck, and elbow-length sleeves under there. I love having versatile pieces in my wardrobe - this dress can be worn with a sweater over it, on its own, with a belt or sash, with tights in the winter, dressy or pretty casual.
I picked up the trail of a beautiful blue silk brocade 50s style cocktail dress the other day, for something like $15. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, happy Thanksgiving!
