Looking Back, Looking Forward

Another classic. There is nothing more chic and sophisticated than a fabulous cowl neckline on ordinary winter knits. The loose-fitting turnover collar adds softness, movement, and extra style to our cozy sweaters and sweater dresses, demonstrating that we can be fly throughout the freeze.

Today’s look features a black and cream textured knit dress with a body skimming silhouette and a fabulously draped cowl neck. The dress is worn with a red belt, textured black tights, and black pumps.

    I tried that dress on at TJ Maxx yesterday and couldn't figure out why it looked so familiar! Love it, but didn't buy it. May go back today to rectify 🙂

    I had lost all my favorites and couldn't remember the name of your blog. So glad I found it again from an old comment you left on mine.

    Now to get my shop on… =)
