A Grey Sweater Dress for Grey Days

I can't remember the last time we had so many grey rainy days here in Los Angeles! It's been non-stop grey skies and storm clouds and it is supposed to continue for at least a few more days! To be honest, I'm someone who actually likes the rain, especially when I can be cozy and curled up in bed listening to and watching the rain at home. Last weekend, we had a couple rainy days, which would have been perfect weather for staying home, but my husband and I had tickets to a play performed at a certain famous historic mansion in Beverly Hills. I'm not going to name it because you're not supposed to take pictures anywhere on the premises without a permit, but the color of my bow-neck sweater dress is in the name of the mansion (hint, hint)!

This sweater dress is now a fantastic value and I am surprised that so many sizes are still in stock! I love the bow detail and on this particular occasion I decided to add another layer of detail by wearing my embellished collar "Tilda" shirt underneath the dress. Even though my outfit here wasn't period appropriate for the occasion (the mansion was built in the 1920s and the play takes place in the same decade), it did get a compliment from the actor playing the role of the butler in the play we went to see. Now if only I could afford to have my own mansion and my own butler to compliment me on all of my outfits, I'd be very happy indeed, although I guess that's what husbands are for!
