What happens when layering becomes a necessity and you’ve invested in a perfect summer ensemble because of an amazing Cyber Monday sale? This outfit! That’s what! Perhaps it is because of the meme floating around cyber space that depicts the cast of “American Horror Story” that I decided on Wednesday’s I too, wear black. Or because my inner Rachel Zoe was dying to be unleashed. Either way, I’m in love with this outfit.
I’ve been heads over 6 inch heels in love with the sheer overlay maxi dress ever since I saw the concept strut down the runway earlier this Spring. Initially, the fact that this look was conceptualized and envisioned for the Fall didn’t really bother me. After all, we’ve been in this season for well over two months now, and just recently have scarves and layers truly been necessary. But, taking into consideration the recent string of cold days I began questioning my recent investment. So after careful thought and consideration I still think major props are owed to those designers who envisioned this earlier this year. It works perfect for those warm days and even those days when layering is necessary. Today, it was 70 degrees. I can work with 70 degrees, and thus decided to add layers with tights and my favorite summer denim jacket. The best thing about this dress? It captures those amazing brisk fall breezes perfectly. I love dresses that pass the “poof” test.
