Afternoon delight: the ideal winter work dress

Tuesday, October 21, 2014



Every so often during my online clothing hunt I come across an item that makes me stop in my tracks, forget what I was doing and just drool. I may not need every item I want, I may not be able to afford every item I want, but I can certainly appreciate every item I want!

Today's afternoon delight: the winter work dress I want more than any other, courtesy of Victoria Beckham.

I'm just a little into grey this fall, as in nearly everything on my Fall/Winter shopping list is grey or has grey components. I love this simple shift for the graduated skirt...the elegant shape...the ease of layering over it (I'm thinking this Joie turtleneck or some kind of cape-style winter coat) or under it.

This stunner's going to have to wait. Though it's available for a slightly lower price via Farfetch, the USA retail price at Nordstrom, Shopbop and Stylebop means I need to save up my pennies or wait for some kind of super sale. I think the design is classic enough that even if I end up waiting til end of season to pick the dress up, it will still be alluring next year. What do you think?

I had a workwear post scheduled to run today but due to Anthropologie's sale it's been bumped to tomorrow. Also coming tomorrow? Fresh Anthro reviews!

What's your afternoon delight today?
