The Find: A Sweater Dress

Oct 3, 2019

I spotted this sweater dress on a woman walking through downtown and had to ask her where she bought it.  She was wearing it over leather leggings with a cool boot and a hoop earring, and it was all of my rocker-chic dreams come to life.  And did I mention that it’s under-$100?

The buttons on this River Island sweater dress are show-stopping.  The dress comes in this olive green, a rusty brown, and a deep navy.  As the photo suggests, the dress is a bit short, hitting about mid-thigh.  So I would recommend wearing it with leggings during the day.  If you want a feistier look for cocktails, I would wear it with a pair of suede over-the-knee boots.

    I love sweater dresses over leggings! I need to try a leather (or faux leather) pair of leggings.

    As an aside, as a child, my mom was always approaching strangers and asking about what they were wearing and where they got it. I was a shy child and was always so embarrassed when she did this. But now I recognize it as the compliment it is, and every now and then will see something that pushes me to ask someone where they got something 🙂

    what is the quality of River Island clothing? Not familiar with this brand

    What color was she wearing, the olive? I assume black leather leggings?

    SUCH a cute find – thanks, Abra!

    Any suggested faux-leather leggings? Tried a LOFT petite pair this week and they fit funny. I know the Spanx is the Holy Grail but would love a pair at a lower price point until I’m sure this is a “for me” look!

      I would get the Spanx from Poshmark. Nothing really compares to them but buying them secondhand saves you money.

    • I’ve tried the Spanx and cannot recc them. They are too tight. Wanna a decent pair on the cheap? Hit up target. I kid you not they have a fully functional pair for like $11 that are JUST RIGHT for wearing under long sweaters. Not see thru. Not too tight. Just right.

        I love Spanx’s faux-leather leggings and haven’t found them to be too tight. But, if you’re between sizes, do go for the larger size.

Shoe Week: One Last Summer Shoe

It’s been a fun week talking about shoes. A former co-worker texted me yesterday and asked what shoe I would buy, if I were only going to buy one shoe for summer. And, of course, I told her that I have two suggestions. Her response: “Typical.”
