Reviews: Waiting for Poems Sheath

Friday, January 30, 2009

I'm starting to feel the winter sillies setting in. Normally this is when I'd schedule a fabulous vacation to somewhere warm, with beaches and (hopefully) a friendly place to crash but this year I am staycation all the way. So I'm living vicariously through spring clothes.

I admit that I glossed over the Waiting for Poems Sheath ($178) in the January catalogue. Wasn't ready for it. But when I saw it in-store my only thought was: supercute! I tried on my true size 6 and found it comfortable. The dress is lined cotton with a side zip.

The bird and flower detail is very warm and pretty, and I like the pleats around the neckline. It took me a few minutes to decide whether I like the sash or not but it's won me over. I wish it was a true red rather than a coral color but if you don't like it you can remove it. This dress would look great with a white or ivory cardigan over it. To the Wishlist it goes.
