Sweater girl

I don't possess any sweaters. I wear cardigans, ponchos and shawls, so I do knitwear, just not sweaters.

But then I found this sweater dress languishing in my mistaken Ebay purchase pile.

The seller had described it as brand new; one look at the worn label and somewhat straggly appearance of the knit made it clear that it wasn't. She didn't respond to my complaint, I got my £1.99 refunded by Ebay, and the dress has been in the attic ever since.


What do you think?
I know it's a sober grey, a colour I rarely choose, but having pepped it up a little with purple tights and my favourite shoe boots, I quite like it. Though anything woolly next to my skin doesn't half irritate me!



Ok, so without a bullet bra, the boobs aren't quite as pointy as Diana's...




 ... and I can't claim to look as sexy as Brigitte...




... but with the knee-high boots, I am reminded of Nancy Sinatra singing "These boots were made for walkin'".




Don't worry, I am not going to ask you if my bum looks big in this. I don't care! 
(And The Boy, who is peering over my shoulder, has just said "Your butt is fine, mum." Praise indeed from an 8 year old boy.

Feel free to sing along.

I hate it when ebay buys turn out to be completely different then listed - bit cheeky them putting it as new! I'm a cardi girl and dont own many sweaters either. Your boots look fabulous, loving all the boots in blogland right now :o) Scarlett x

I must confess that jumper dresses are my go-to lazy option for winter school run time, some thick tights/leggings and boots and I'm done (this is very helpful when I give myself the extra 10 minutes in bed cos it's bloody freezing!)

I love grey and purple together, its actually one of my favourite colour combinations.

I fear woollies, too. Ponchos and knitted tights are my limit.
I do love that dress, it fits you like a dream. I feel the need to run up and pinch your gorgeous bum (maybe the frisky window cleaner will oblige?)
I nearly called my post the same as yours, great minds and all that. xxxxxxxxxxxx

Well pardon me for saying... Your BUTT IS FINE!! =p
I think the dress looks rather nice on your too. I am all about feeling snuggly in the cold months!

Unlike you and Vix, woolens completely dominate my wardrobe. Dresses, skirts, jackets, jumpers, cardigans...anyone would think I have a family of shepherds keeping me in the stuff.
This dress is fantastic because; we get to see your luscious legs, booty-liscious butt, elegant neck and its in my FAVOURITE colour.
This was not an ebay mistake Curtise! Love it with the shoe boots best.

You look fab! I am not good with woolly frocks like this because when I walk, they seem to ride up my legs until the skirt is around my waist!

Great look and GREAT purchase for £1.99!

We ALL hate wool next to skin - it's YUUKK!!! So wear a lovely silk/cotton top underneath and wear it OFTEN because you look FABULOUS in it! I love the red flower and purple tights - would love to see other colour combos on high rotation! You look beautiful!

Love! Sarah xxx
