I recently thrifted this Jones New York sheath as a place holder for my beloved BR ponte knit sheath which is now too large. I like the length, the dressier fabrication and the full lining. Today is its maiden voyage and I thought I'd try a blouse layering look as per Ingunn - I love it when she layers a top underneath her sheath.
The blouse I chose is my gold/black/brown snakeskin print VC blouse. I then added my large black polka dot hose for some fun and a bit of pattern mixing and am wearing my black patent Ara booties - again! These are so comfortable I want to wear them every day.
My slouchy black leather hobo bag with gold hardware is my choice today and jewelry is two rings. When I step out the door, I'll pop on the Spiegel leather jacket.
So what do you think? Does it all work together? I over exposed the pics a bit to counteract the darkness of the outfit. Unfortunately the photos do not show just how perfectly this sheath dress fits.
I do have one question though - a v-neck is the best shape for me since I have a short neck and it helps to elongate my upper half. Should I have Wonder Woman change the neckline on the sheath to a v-neck? or is the current shape more versatile?
As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
