I am starting to get oh so jealous of friends who can embrace fall fashion, while I still suffer through 90 degree days. This dress is probably one of the oldest items in my wardrobe. It was one of the few items that I kept after losing 50 pounds. My mom did some wicked alterations to salvage this dress I couldn't part with. She even shortened it (used to be just past my knees) despite her opinion that longer was better. This was the dress I wore to my 10 year high school reunion in 2004. And too a few weddings that year as well. It is a great jersey that never wrinkles, takes up virtually no space in a suitcase, and feels as comfy as pajamas. I wasn't teaching today, but I still feel funny with bare arms with students around in the halls, so I added my yellow cashmere cardigan.
