Spring into a Sheath

Basic black sheath?  Check.  It’s now time for vibrant color to meet the basic work sheath.

Last weekend, on a routine trip to the Marshalls MegaStore in St. Louis, I found a beautiful, orange sheath dress by Tahari.  It’s a classic sheath in a perfect spring hue with the most striking origami detail at the neckline.

And, guess what?  It was on clearance for $39, a small fraction of its retail price.  Score!

    You are the sheath queen. I like the detail at the collar, pretty color as well.

    You look so pretty in that orange! Orange has never been a color that I can pull off, but you do it beautifully!

    Now I have to add orange sheath to my list of wardrobe "needs," so thanks for that. I love that neckline! And I am always pro-orange. 🙂

    I love the collar and the color!

    I keep looking for sheaths, but I seem to find ones that don't quite fit…
