One of my favorite ways to get use out of my dresses in the cooler months is to layer pieces over them, wearing them more like a skirt.  This method works particularly well with straight sheath dresses, like this leopard-print version.  It warmed up just enough over the weekend that I was able to skip the tights (please excuse my pasty white legs)...and the sweater + vest combination was just the right amount of layering so I could leave my jacket at home.  Not bad for the middle of November in New York!

Just want to say a quick thank you for all the sweet notes, emails, cards & well wishes for my birthday yesterday - it was a great day with my family & I feel so blessed!!
