I don’t know why, but as soon as I saw this Anthro dress, I thought: layering opportunity. The neckline is a bit on the revealing side for work, but I think it works nicely with a sleeveless shell. I was a bad blogger and forgot to talk photos without the blazer, but the dress has sleeves so it’s actually quite warm. I threw on the blazer because work, naturally. And also to de-twee-fy the dress. Did I work? Well, at the very least, I think I pulled off “librarian chic”, which is a win in my book.
I did try to play around the lighting in these pics so I could show you the details of the dress fabric, but no dice. The style was called “Geo Burnout” and I think is supposed to mimic velvet devore … also known as burnout. It’s got an interesting texture, and it provided a nice contrast with the tweed blazer.
