A dress that does triple duty as a built-in scarf and hood..? Yes, please!

I’ve been on the hunt for a nice fairisle sweater for a while, and I almost passed up this little number at Rugby the other day. I was on my way out of the store, when I spotted it neatly folded on the clearance table. I didn’t even realize it was a dress at first, and I was pleasantly surprised to find this hidden gem. It’s really thick and cozy, and I’ve worn it twice already in the 72-hours since I bought it (don’t judge, it’s cold outside!).

In other news, my husband had a grand ol’ time making fun of me and my abysmal vertical leap while taking these photos. He didn’t believe me when I tried to blame it on the heels, but I think I impressed him a little bit with my tuck jump… or maybe not.

I’m a career gal, living in NYC while attempting to climb the corporate ladder one fashionable footstep at a time. I always dreamed of a glamorous job in the fashion industry, but instead I became a technology geek and now spend most of my days talking bits and bytes with IT Directors. Even though khakis and polos are the standard uniform within my industry, I prefer dresses and high heels. The only fashion rules I follow are to have fun and keep it classy… everything else is fair game! I look forward to sharing both my on- and off-duty looks with the Curly Nikki community each week. I am literally ALL OVER the web, and you can connect with me via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, and Pinterest.
