Friday Frocks: I Can Love You Sweater.

By |October 5th, 2012|Friday Frocks, Why Did You Wear That?|

oversize sweaterBy now, it should be clear how I feel about knitwear.  Cardigans, pullovers, hats, and gloves.  My favorite piece of knitwear, however, is the sweater dress.  By far one of the most versatile pieces of the autumnal season, it can be worn alone with a great pair of boots, with tights when the brisk breeze turns to a crisp chill, and over leggings when the snow plows start to rumble through the streets.  A slouchy, soft sweaterdress is the equivalent of an oversized boyfriend shirt.  It’s comfortable, easy, and altogether chic.  It also has the overwhelming effect of making you look completely cuddly and I cannot be held responsible if handsome strangers have the overwhelming urge to hug you when wearing one.

Friday Frocks: Thankful for Sweater Dresses

By |November 18th, 2011|Friday Frocks, Why Did You Wear That?|

Alright, so we are gearing up for a big week next week.  Big in terms of family, cooking, and our stomachs.  That’s right, Thanksgiving is right around the corner (ahem- next Thursday).  This holiday means many things- one of which is failing miserably at portion control.  Aunt Mimi’s pie is just too good.  While I’d rather just wear something from tent and awning, it is possible that you’ll be spending this special day with a special someone’s family… So, you’ll have to look (somewhat) presentable.  Next best thing to wrapping yourself in a duvet?  The oh so effortless sweater dress.  It’s cozy, it’s cute, and it allows for an extra piece of pie.  Wear yours with textured tights (or sweater leggings) and flat boots for a pulled together, yet totally relaxed look.

Friday Frocks: A Chill in the Air

Oh, there it is. That familiar nip in the air. Fall has arrived. Fashion week, pumpkin spice lattes, boots, and chunky cashmere are all the best parts of fall. This week’s frocks are dedicated to one of my very favorites, the sweater dress. Always comfy, always cool.
