Sheath Dressing for the Holidays

I took the Boutiques style quiz recently and guess what, I have a classic style. No surprise, right?

Nothing says classic like a sheath dress with clean lines and crisp tailoring. If I had a uniform, it would be a sheath dress.

I thought I had all the sheaths that I needed for now until I spotted the flamenco red number featured in today’s post. I was sold at its beautiful red color, but the dress has other hip details like front pockets and a standout zipper in the back.

Oh, get this, after the application of a couple discounts, I bought the dress for $22.94 (retail $89.90).

Today’s post shows the dress styled for a holiday party.  It is worn with a studded belt, lace tights, a velvet blazer, and black pumps.
