summer and winter

i always wonder why there aren't more terrycloth dresses sold for winter. i mean, yes, i do understand that the usual association with terrycloth is beachtowels and that you usually would use those during summer when going for a swim, with sunshine and heat and icecream and all those nice things that make a great summer, but really: terrycloth is a lot thicker (read: warmer) than most other cotton fabric, so it would make great garments for winter!

just look at this fantastic dress i was wearing yesterday:

dress: only
turtleneck: new yorker
cardigan: kenvelo
tights and flower: h&m
shoes: deichmann

and no, i'm neither sick nor dead, it's just the camera playing tricks on me. the pictures turn kind of blueish when not using the flash inside..

Is that dress out of terrycloth? It's lovely! And even better if it is warm, thats always such a bonus to be able to combine pretty & practical!

@ spabeachresort: thank you! i'll come as soon as i find some spare time to see your blog.

@ freelancers fashionblog: yes, it's terrycloth. not as warm as wool, but warmer than the usual jerseys or cottonprints out there.. it's a great dress it is!
