The Find: A Do-Anything Dress

Mar 6, 2024

A dress that can do anything is a marvel. The dress can go to work. It can go on a dinner date. It can be worn to church. All you have to do is change your jewelry and your shoes. This is such a dress.

This dotted dress from Anne Klein is a fantastic find. The color combination of navy and pale blue is great.  The faux-wrap style is an easy wear, and I like the fuller sleeve to give it a flirtier feel.

This dress, while wonderful, is not perfect.  It runs a bit large, so I sized down.  The dress also needs a hem — it’s a strange length in real life, so make sure to have the hem taken up to just below knee-length.)  These two simple changes take the dress to the next level.

How to style it?  For work, you need a skintone-hued, flexible/comfortable pump, a pair of chic croissant-texture hoops, and a berry-red lipstick.  For a dinner date, try a pale blue shoe.

    Abra – do you think it would look ok with flats? (Maybe strappy, flat sandals or a ballet flat?) I very rarely wear heels anymore.

    Pretty! Would be nice for work conferences with business casual dress codes and freezing meeting rooms. Unfortunately the waist looks high for my long torso (common problem for me).

The Find: My Best Workout Shorts

For eight years, I have worn the same workout shorts. Every year, an influencer tries to sell me new shorts. I order them. I try them on. They pale in comparison to the shorts I already own. I return them.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
