Now and Later

This dress is on sale at Bloomie's (okay, on sale at Bloomingdale's is still $200, but …) so click on the link if you are interested. It's silk-cotton jersey, so it will hang like a dream, and, although I'm usually not a fan of the uneven hem, here it really works.

This is a good now-and-later dress — you can wear it now with sandals and bare skin, and it should also work in cooler weather, too. I'd wear it with a gunmetal-gray silk undershirt (3/4 sleeves of course), tights, and boots. ( by preference. And if you are the person that sold them to me on eBay would you please mail them NOW? kthxbye!) That would look very cyberpunk, to me. With a silver leather cuff watch and silver beads.

There's a similar (and much cheaper — $50) v-neck dress at Bloomingdales. for that one, which is washable wool and also available in red and petite sizes. I'd wear the red one with a white Peter Pan collar blouse, tights, and lace-up high-heel oxford pumps.

  1. I love thinking of these dresses as jumpers for the fall/winter. And I like the cheaper even better, (snapped one up, in fact). Who can resist the infinitely versatile? Thanks for the tip!


  2. But I feel like the fabric would be too thin/clingy to layer. No? I’ve had a couple of things I though I could wear over tights, but they just stuck to them weirdly.


  3. Jesse, try getting an anti-static slip (a slip! in the 21st Century! I know, I know –) They work and they provide an extra layer of warmth in the winter).


  4. Yeah, I suppose. Instead I just wear winter things in the winter, instead of trying to push it. I’m not much for layering, anyway.
