Andrea writes, "I am looking for a cream/ivory dress in a 50s shape - full, knee-length skirt, 3/4 sleeves - ideally in a heavy lace, but I would also be happy with a winter-weight cotton, wool or synthetic, as long as there is no sheen/sparkles. I'm dreaming of a dress I can wear with black tights and sassy pumps all winter long...but my budget is probably capped at $200 or under. Thanks so much!"
Ok, there are a lot of parameters in this request, and let us say, the search was difficult! It's certainly hard to find things with 3/4 sleeves, and we were forced to make some compromises. We'd invest in a timeless creme cardigan as a topper for sleeveless looks we're presenting.
