After avoiding purchasing any new clothing for about three months, I snapped at Anthropologie a couple weekends ago and bought this ponte knit dress. It was on sale. But not inexpensive. However, it’s a perfect royal blue color, it’s machine washable, it has a flattering fit-and-flare silhouette…and it has sleeves! Why is it so hard to find dresses with sleeves? Do those little scraps of fabric really add so much to the production cost of a garment? If I’m going to wear a dress, I don’t want to HAVE to pair it with a cardigan for the office, thanks. Not that I can’t bare my arms at work, but I don’t like to.
