Blazers, handbags, denim, and pumps are all worthy investment pieces for their timeless appeal and versatility. Turtlenecks and lace slip dresses? Not so much. Although items qualifying of investment status vary from person to person the underlying factor remains the same: wearablily from season to season year after year. The unsureness and self-conscious level associated with a turtleneck and a slip dress kept me from wanting to pay much so I was thrilled when I stumbled across a $19 slip dress from Zara and a $3.50 turtleneck from H&M! Who could have predicted I would pair them together? I love how the turtleneck downplays the potential sexiness of the slip dress and the lace hem of the dress keeps the look from being too dowdy. Plus this black and blue combination pairs perfectly with the dark, stormy Seattle weather we had a few weeks back and the consequential mood I was feeling at the time. What do you think of this combination? Do you consider turtlenecks an investment piece? I’m looking forward to styling both these pieces for warmer weather, any suggestions? Hope you had a great weekend! 🙂
