An "I kept the Petalblush Sweater Dress" OOTD

After reading the hilarious Jenni of Gnome Lover's review (here), I couldn't help but think "muppet tragedy" when I looked at the Petalblush Sweater Dress hanging from my closet door during my decision period. But then I was running late to work one day and saw a quick and easy solution to the usual "what do I wear?" dilemma, and on it went! I am glad cause I think it is a pretty great dress, despite the muppet trim (which sheds, by the way... annoyingly!). 

As you can imagine from the above description, I wore it to campus for teaching. It yielded many compliments from students and staff making me even more certain of my decision. It might wind up being my outfit for Christmas Eve dinner (my Italian family observes the Feast of the Seven Fishes which is something we look forward to all year!). Thanks for reading!

Outfit Details:
Petalblush Sweater dress from Anthroplogie (fit reviewed here)
Spanx tights
Dumond (very low) heels

Yay! And who doesn't love a little muppet with their fashion?
I have been sweater dress crazy lately- so much cozy! I think this is a good piece, with unique details. Perfect for holiday dinners!

You are so sweet. I actually ended up purchasing that dress. I think it looks lovely on you! I will have it up in an outfit post sometime soon. But I find myself smiling now at the muppet part and just going with it.

The back is so cool, too. Don't you think? In fact the whole dress is just neat.

I am glad you kept it. I love the color of your tights with it. I paired mine with mustard yellow tights last week. Iam not sure if it was a bit much.

Anyway, you look great! : )

I think you made a good choice. Muppet-y fur or not, it looks great on you :)

I love the back of this dress. It definitely helped me overlook its muppety aspects. The other day when I was wearing mine, the muppet trip started falling off. Really annoying. I would exchange but it is sold out and I love it otherwise. Thank you for your kind compliments, btw!
