Picture 002Picture 008“Flame” merino v-neck from J. Crew's Final Sale, black nubby wool crepe trousers from Ann Taylor Loft, black booties from Sudini, vintage red stone necklace from boutique in Rehoboth Beach.

Hair is second day, used the Croc Wet-to-Dry iron to smooth out bedhead.

Makeup is L'Oreal True Match concealer in W1-3, philosophy The Supernatural in Beige, Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Glossy Rose, Nars blush in Orgasm, Body Shop Shimmer Cubes in Warmth – peach over lid, brown in crease and along lash lines. Lashes curled, a coat of Cover Girl LashBlast in black.

This sweater looked red on the website, but in person it is very bright… the same color as my shantung skirt and silk tank from Banana Republic. I had to get rid of the tank after a washing mishap, and asked my husband if this sweater could possibly pair with the skirt (thinking the cashmere tee/dressy skirt look) and he said, “Sure if you are trying to dress as Mimi from Drew Carey.” Gotta love his honesty! I was thinking with leopard heels and some funky necklace… but really this color is verging on neon and best when paired with another color, not as an all-over blast.

    I do not. I used Certain-Dri most evenings and Secret Clinical Strengt… but I get a handful of wearings out of each wool garment before they are washed. each day so it hasn’t been much of an issue. I also wash my wool garments in the machine on the gentle cycle with Woolite and hang dry

    Hi Allie,
    When you wear a wool sweater or dress like this, do you wear a t-shirt underneath? My mother used to hammer on me about the importance of dress shields, but I couldn’t be bothered. Now that I have a number of fine sweaters and wool dresses, I’m thinking they’re a great idea.
