Has this ever happened to you? Do you love something so much that you buy it in every color? I have done that with shoes, and only a couple of times with a dress; this time counts as one of those times. I needed a dress for an outdoor evening event last week that would be easy to wear, pretty, and above all, keep me warm. I asked the one and only Nima Ghassemian (my personal shopper at Bloomingdales) if there was anything there that sounded close to what I needed. He said he had 2 dresses by one of my favorite brands, Sandro, that he thought would be perfect. I first tried on the navy version and decided that it would be perfect for the event. It fits tight to the body but in the most flattering way, and the fact that it flares out kept my silhouette long and fairly lean. If it had hugged at the hips and tapered down, there would have been a need for Spanx, but with an easy flair from the waist down, the dress flatters. The fit is so good, and they look different enough in the two colors, with the two necklines, that I decided to keep them both!
I can see why you bought both Lesley. Absolutely fabulous!!
Long sleeved knits are very useful!
