The Sweater Dress Part 1

Sweater dress, thrifted, grey, turtle neck


Being a style blogger in Toronto is not always an easy thing. Sometimes I envy the bloggers living in climates where it’s always warm and the sun is always shinning. However, I’m not going to let the polar vortex stop me from expressing myself and having fun.

This dress is one of the last purchases I will be making until April. I decided to participate in a no buying challenge with a friend to help force us to utilize our closets and  wear what we already have.

The dress is  pretty basic looking but it has already proven to be an item that can be worn in many different ways to many different occasions. Sometimes your style does not have to be complicated.

If your looking to save money on your wardrobe but not compromise your style, investing in basic pieces is a must! 
 Originally, this was the outfit  I planned to wear to a birthday party at a nice restaurant, however I also styled the dress in a more causal way.  I will share it on the blog in the next few days. Unfortunately, I never did make it to the birthday party because I fell ill, but I still wanted to share the look.

Hope you enjoyed the post
Until Next time,
Sincerely Miss J

    Sorry about the Hideous weather & missing the party! Hope you're feeling much Better now & how soon warmer temps return! :)You look Fab! Zara can do no wrong! I've been trying to practice the CPW (cost per wear) rule as well! Classic pieces to mix (affordable blazers, jackets, bags & shoes) with the versatility to be worn & make a statement with anything in the closet!Always reaching for right now??? Oddly enough a gray & off white striped sweater dress! Strange because my fav colors are black, red & white! Take Care! Be Well & Warm! Wishing you a Beautiful Day! 🙂

      Oh gosh Cheri, the weather is depressing. If I was not stuck at school, I would be gone somewhere hot. I like that phase " cost per wear" stealing it for my next post. Hope your doing well too!

    One of the reasons I started following your blog was because I lived in a cold climate at the time, and many fashion bloggers either pretend that 1) it's never cold, or 2). that they live in Los Angeles. It's a bigger challenge trying to look stylish in all seasons!

      Aww thanks, yes it's such a challenge. I wanted to take a break because it's so cold and 2. I don't have that many coats to show off. However, thank gosh for indoor locations, and for driving so it's makes it easier to wear things I like on milder days
