ON WINTER DRESSES

Monday February 22nd, 2016

Right before winter and right after transition weather I bought an oversized, long sleeve dress. Usual story: it was love at first sight as I can’t resist to anything with the ‘oversized’ word on the tag. It was early November and it started to be a bit risky to run out there on bare legs, so I only had a couple chances to wear it. It has been hanging in my wardrobe since then, waiting for transition weather to come back again. Remember the Shirtdress Outfits post where I told you that I own a handful of winter dresses that don’t match in any way with black tights? This belongs there.

But… as we’re lately having weird weather in Barcelona, last week I grabbed it from the wardrobe and did a bare legs outfit. Whoa! It is a bargain I spotted at Zara (so unusual, huh?), a simple yet special pattern with a single pleat in the back and an asymmetrical bottom. What’s the point of it? As it’s such a different structure, to finish the outfit I only needed my brown leather booties. Voilà!

Learn from the Voice of Experience: do not wear asymmetrical bottom dresses on a windy day. Weird butt guaranteed.

While I pray for more sunny and balmy days till the arrival of Spring, I’m going to let me go through wool and knitwear and give some more chances to winter dresses.

A couple of days ago I showed you my all-time favorite striped dress and some of you asked where to buy it. I’m sorry it’s from 3 or 4 years ago, but you can take a look at Steven Alan or Zara because they have some striped goodies you’ll like!

Love to hear from you!
