What’s not to like? It’s a faux wrap with a deep V in the back to match the one in front. It has three-quarters length sleeves. The fabric is a swingy, non-clingy jersey. The print is beautiful and set against a background of deep purple. It’s made by London Times, which sells at Marshall’s and TJ Maxx and produced two of my other favorite dresses of all time.
The delay in the dress’ debut was the length. I don’t generally do below-the-knee skirts. I’m of average height and long-legged, but tend to look stumpy if my knees aren’t exposed. I dreaded hemming this dress because blind stitching a full skirt takes ages, but I finally finished the project this week, after four episodes of What Not to Wear.
Dress, London Times. Cowl-neck vest, Worthington. Blazer, FANG. Tights, We Love Colors. Boots, Nine West.
Are you dying to see the uncovered dress? First you must scroll through pictures of the other layers:
Olive green tights and my beloved cowlneck vest. It’s looking a little tired these days…but I’ve been wearing it since Feb 07.
And…the dress alone. It’s 2.5 inches shorter than it was originally.
