I have a black cashmere roll-neck sweater dress that I wore almost every day last winter when it was very cold - it is a bit worn out now, but was really lovely and cosy. I might replace it with the same dress!
I wouldn't have chosen something that was dry-clean only. Would probably have chosen something in grey jersey that could be washed and dried quickly overnight. Assume some minion has to take the dress to the drycleaners for her!
I read about someone doing the year in a dress thing, maybe in the Guardian or a magazine, but the woman wore a dress with buttons down the back, it was sleeveless, not black, maybe blue (can't remember now) but it was versatile.
I really don't like that purple dress in the link... don't think I could happily wear it once.
I thought the article was o.k. The dress was o.k. Her shoes were alright. I think she did quite well to make it look different. No good having a dry clean thing though. As a woman who has been back at work for a week, after mat leave, I agree, getting ready for work is nice. I'm sure that novelty will wear off very soon though !
