Winterizing or fallifying a light dress is as easy as layering a turtleneck/rollneck under it.
Why not keep this dress out? Well, for one: room - I have a LOT of dresses and not enough space to hav my entire wardrobe out all the time. Two: it's unlined and a thin poly/cotton blend - it'll be better with bare legs (it rode up with the tights today) and arms. Three: I have oodles of spring/summer shoes that will go with it. For winter, mostly black and red.
The dress has a lot of pink and purple in it, but I see that in the pictures, it mostly reads as red/black/cream with spots of turquoise. Click here for a shot of the fabric - lots of pink!
Of course, if I'm going to have bright pink arms, I may as well have bright pink legs, right? All the limbs must be pink!here in December 2011 to my first company Christmas party, and they were not new then. They have one tiny hole in the toe - I'm amazed they've lasted this long, but I don't wear them all that much.
