The fabric of my Box Dress is a lightweight wool/cashmere blend and I love the texture as its so soft. However, the grey colour of the dress and the relaxed fit, made me look dowdy (like a nun) so I decided to give it a makeover with some black giant rickrack.
Rather than consign a garment to the back of the wardrobe, why not use some trim to jazz it up instead. I am so glad that I did! The rickrack has given the dress a different look.
There has been some high fashion nun-chic:
Back in the habit: Yves Saint Laurent
Valentino Pre-Fall 2014
Will nun-chic catch on?
