I bought this tweed dress two years ago.
It’s rather elaborate: tweed trimmed with velvet and eyelash-fringe, hook-and-eye closures — and doesn’t require any further ornamentation. I don’t think it could support more detail.
As originally sold, it had a thick, banded collar around the neck — Mandarin-influenced. I generally like that look, but this tweed fabric is too thick for such use. It felt like a neck brace. So, after wearing the dress with limited enthusiasm last year, I had a breakthrough this fall. I had the collar removed. Presto! I suddenly have a new dress that I adore.
These patent leather boots, however, kind of make the dress.
