Splurge-worthy Sheath Dress

Ok ok. A well-tailored sheath dress is a splurge-worthy item. It weathers trends and transitions from work to play. So, it is especially rewarding to find a fabulous sheath and not need to splurge. After a weekend sale, this dress at a BR outlet was less than 1/3 of the cost at the main store.

The dress features a fine black and white houndstooth print. It is worn with a black skinny belt and red peep-toe pumps. An aubergine leather bag with pleating details completes the look.

    That dress would have been a bargain at twice the price.

    It’s great with the red shoes.
