The best part about going to weddings in the warmer months is the chance to put on a fabulous dress, some sky-high heels and easily, breezily be on your way without another thought to your ensemble. Thus it is quite the harsh reality check when the cold arrives and you suddenly realize that you don’t have anything quite fancy enough to wear over that fabulous dress.
Ladies, we feel your pain. We were at a wedding in Chicago a couple of weeks ago, and it was cold, and we panicked. We panicked, that is, until we remembered the godsend we’d thought to throw in our overstuffed garment bag at the last minute: Thread Social’s tuxedo coatdress. It was quite literally the perfect thing to throw over our little one-shouldered frock, just perfectly warm enough to take us from hotel to taxi to wedding and back again. (And we won’t even get into the ridiculous amount of compliments we got when wearing the coat.) We do realize we are tooting our own horn here, but we are doing it for your own good, we promise.
