dress: f21. cardigan: cable&gauge.

Featured Forever21's $20 dress is surprisingly versatile: silk-like enough to wear over sandals during hot summers, but lengthy enough to keep warm with thick leggings and a good wedge or otherwise chunky heel during the nippy falls. Naked shoulders for the primary, healthy layers (think chunky scarf + trimmed, warm jacket) for the latter. It folds well over a belt to sport it knee-length. Further, the calculated stitches across the breast keep the shape from being too unshapely; F21 here produces a cloth that hugs the silhouette in all the right places. And because the weather is currently intermediate--hence a summer floor-sweeper and cardigan combo-- I can broadcast my shape for a little bit longer this year. And this is because the weather is also deliberating on when it will officially turn into fall; not that the calendar's solstice hasn't already made it official.... That is to say, when my desktop weather widget (accurately) predicts a consistent forecast of drizzle and drear is when I'll feel most settled. Because that is when I won't have to guess if the sun being out means it's warming enough for a tee and scarf or just being a nasty tease and demanding I sport both sunshades and a good coat.

♥ te amo,
