There’s a whole lotta grey happening here, and I love it. This colorblock (does it count if it’s all different shades of the same colour?) dress by Pink Tartan was a real consignment score: beautiful, made in Canada, and only $30. The fabric is a 96% wool/4% elastane blend, so it falls nicely on the body. As a bonus, it’s lined. Really, the construction is quite impeccable. It’s one of the few examples of this dress style I’ve found where the waist actually hits me at my natural waist as opposed to several inches higher. (I have a long torso, sigh.) The only things missing are bra keeps – a minor quibble.
Of course, because it’s the middle of winter, and Edmonton might as well be called Winterfell (House Stark 4evah!), I threw on a blazer for not-freezing-my-butt-off purposes. It worked. And then I added a red bag, because there is only so much monochrome a girl can take.
