Flavors To Follow: Sweater Dress

Hello from sunny (and slightly chilly) California! We’re out here to surprise my brother for his birthday and for our friend’s wedding! And he just ain’t any old friend, but he’s the reason me and Marvin met each other, he’s our matchmaker! 🙂 I’m also getting a perm today, I’m soo excited and nervous at the same time!! Don’t worry, it ain’t no Shirley Temple curls, it’ll be big waves (I hope anyways)! And lastly I have a few blogger meet-ups lined up, as long as the LA traffic doesn’t hold us back, hopefully I’ll be able to see them all!

I totally think today’s Flavors to Follow is quite fitting for the weather right now.  It’s not quite super cold yet but it’s just starting to get chilly, especially in the mornings, and I can attest to this for the Midwest and California!  My obsession with sweater dresses pretty much began last year and guess what?  I am still obsessed this year too!  You can wear them over jeans or tights (colored ones as Much Love, Illy would say) with flats or boots, one dress, so many looks, you can’t go wrong!

1 cozy up to this leMuse milk sweater dress seen on bug miscellany
2 slip your hands into the pockets of this adorable striped Rag & Bone/JEAN knit pocket dress from shopbop
3 brighten up your day with this golden opportunity sweater from modcloth
4 feel sexy and sleek with this lurex sweaterdress with ruffle hem from victoria’s secret
5 seen on honeysuckle chic and also from victoria’s secret, this slouchy fair isle sweaterdress looks stylish and comfy
6 take yourself back to the 80s with this vintage red cable knit slouchy sweater dress from enid and edgar
7 be warm (sorta) and sexy with this McQ – alexander mcqueen cable knit dress from shopbop

Are you a sweater dress fan?  Is there one that you’re currently eyeing?

Hope you adore this pretty collection as much as I do!  Have a wonderful happy beautiful weekend my friends!  Don’t forget to check previous posts for the TWO giveaways going on right now.  And come back next week for TWO more giveaways as well, boom chicka boom.

    I have one sweater dress, but clearly I need more. I love that warmth. Hope you have a fantastic weekend in LA! I’ll actually be driving up there too to see some friends and I’m hoping that the traffic doesn’t get too bad.

    Oh Sandy, I have always wanted a perm like that but my hair is so straight I wonder how it will turn out. You will have to let us know!

    And have an awesome blogger meet up. LA traffic can be brutal!

    And I have a sweater dress but I don’t like it. I need ones like these!

    LOVE the first one. Sweater dresses are one of my favorite things in this world.

  10. October 22, 2010 / 10:29 am

    stunning! I’m quite indifferent about sweater dresses, would feel equally good with or without one, but these options are great!

  11. October 22, 2010 / 10:42 am

    Oh, I can’t wait to see your big wave curls!

    And I wish that I could wear a sweater dress here, they look so fun! Unfortunately, it’s too hot here to even think of such things:P

    I love number 2 but sadly I have not figure out how to pull of a sweater dress and really, I don’t think I can. The whole athletic body and then being short thing just doesn’t work for long top items on me. Oh well, such is life!

    p.s. I got my give-away goodies today – you ROCK! I posted about it over on my blog!

  18. October 22, 2010 / 11:34 pm

    yes! i am big fan of sweater dresses! love #2. i love the whole look with the boots. have a fantastic weekend~

  19. October 23, 2010 / 12:42 pm

    I love sweater dresses but I have yet to find one that looks good on me. It’s always too bunchy for all my curves.

  20. October 23, 2010 / 5:41 pm

    I totally love sweater dresses too! i can’t believe i only own one. that seems crazy to me. 😛

    excellent finds! : )

  23. October 25, 2010 / 3:00 am

    Omg – Sandy, I’m such a sucker for sweater dresses! They’re comfy and stylish at the same time, and I can wear them with two of my favorite Fall must-haves – leggings and boots!

  24. October 25, 2010 / 8:43 am

    I am absolutely loving these. I have a few that I wear to death!
    #2 my fave….and her shoes! sigh…
    Hope you had a wonderful weekend Sandy!
