long Boden cardigan over a similar dress, and I knew it might save the day.
The cardigan will go over other dresses I have as well. And do you ever have that problem that no cardigan is long enough to go over some items?--this will do the trick. Lightweight cotton and cashmere, it should work throughout the year. All Boden sweaters are exceptionally well made. It's expensive, but somehow I've also convinced myself anything that creates a new work outfit from a failed piece is worth quite a bit. It'll also likely be my main holiday gift (thank you, sweetie).
I'm drawn to the idea of pairing it with cobalt blue.
By the way, I'm neither long nor tall, but I love Long Tall Sally. I just size down, and I skip buying their pants.
What items have you saved from the brink by restyling them?
If you love something, let it go? If it comes back, it's yours?
I re-purchased the $15 boys' Target cobalt cords to go with this maxi cardigan. Very happy now :-)
