I am finally posting some WIWs after almost a month pause. I have been scarce on the forum in this periods for all sorts of reasons, good and bad. I have been taking pictures of my outfits though, especially those based on various ensembles, so I am going to try to clear up the back log as much as possible.

I love sweater dresses with tall boots, but as I mentioned on the blog post, I have to add ponte pants/leggings underneath to satisfy the work dress code. That more casual version of the ensemble is one my cold weather FFBOs. Most my sweater dresses are thus worn as tunics over pants and annoyingly on the shorter side on me due to my very long torso. I have put together two different outfits based on the ensemble post on the past couple of days. A lot of the items here are fairly old.

#1- #5 On Friday, the outfit was based on navy cable BCBG sweater dress and charcoal tall Zinda boots. I added charcoal ponte Paige skinnies, bright mid-purple Benetton coat and matching striped Benetton scarf ( both from around 2004), long grey pearls, silver RM bag and silver MJ watch. This outfit was worn for my work Thanksgiving international potluck lunch, which was lots of fun. Later in the evening, I had to run some errands at the local mall, and used the opportunity to loose the ponte skinnies and wear some pretty lacey grey textured tights instead (#5).

#6- #7. Yesterday I had to run some errands in the fancy part of the town so decided to put together an all black, textured mixed version of the ensemble. It was based on black Nanette Leppore sweater dress with built-in bling and tall black suede La Candienne boots (both from 2009). I added black lacey tights, textured (sheer stripes) black shirt under the dress since the dress is sleeveless, grey/black leopard scarf, same silver watch and bag, and finished it all with another very old item, black boucle coat w/ faux fur trim which I think is from around 2006.
