No Rest for the Cricket Sweater Dress

I have been coveting a cricket sweater for the longest time. Ever since I re-binged the later seasons of Sex and the City and noticed how chic Charlotte looked showing Elizabeth Taylor Goldenblatt in the athletic-inspired staple, I have had my eye out for one. For some reason, there is a gentlemen’s version in several price points every season. Not the case for the ladies.

Last weekend I went to see Thoroughbreds. Highly recommended. It was the one of the last film appearances of Anton Yelchin prior to his untimely and tragic death.

The character of Lily had the most phenomenal wardrobe, though the outfit change seemed low. It was very Blair Waldorf, and I love Blair Waldorf style. During the scene where she is wearing a cricket sweater dress, I Googled for an similar style. In the middle of the theater. It is a sickness.

You will never guess where this dress is from. I did not see it coming. Also, it is available in tall. Petite too for my shorter friends! I was shocked to see this brand offer more than standard sizes. It is starting to overcome the reputation that it earned during the aughts. Bonus: the dress is 100% cotton. No polyester, acrylic, or any other sketchy synthetic fabric. I can only hope to soon find a pair of 36″ inseam slouchy bootcut jeans in the most perfect faded wash in seasons to come.
