Look of the Day: Sweater Dress Season

I'm a firm believer in embracing style even in below freezing weather, because I refuse to allow Chicago's windchill to stop me from being cute. With that being said, one of my favorite winter wardrobe pieces are sweater dresses. I grabbed this vintage 1980's sweater dress from Village Discount Outlet a few months ago . What drew me to it was the bejeweled design on the chest area. However after trying it on, looking at in a full mirror, and getting a good feel for the dress, I decided like Solange I'm not really feeling it haha!

This is a vintage Darian acrylic sweater dress and I rocked it this past weekend while visiting the Blind Faith Cafe (still thinking about that scrumptious ass cake btw, omg!). I absolutely love the multi-color jewels on the chest area of the dress, they remind me of Christmas lights. It's so 1980's and a great dress, but a bit roomy and long for my liking. Funny thing is, it's a size medium but can seemingly fit a large/x-large. Plus, I'm not a huge fan of all black attire, I need color in my life, dammit! This dress would most certainly be a better fit on someone who's a size 14, definitely a curve hugger. 

Nonetheless, this was a stylish ensemble for the winter season. I wore a pair of my bamboo earrings to go with the 1980's vibe, my vintage metallic gold purse, black stockings, and my Joan & David metallic bronze flats. Looking back at this look, I think I would have wore red stockings or instead of black to add a pop of color. To add, I put my hair in a fancy frohawk to go all out for some extra vintage flare.
