A Verstaile Dress that helps a great cause

If you have been following me for a while, you know that I am all about buying versatile pieces that can be worn multiple ways.  When I saw this GREY MAXI DRESS from Talbots, I thought it was the perfect addition to my wardrobe.  Before I talk about different ways to style the dress, I wanted to let you know my favorite thing about it.  (Hint - It has nothing to do with what the dress looks like!)

Talbots has worked with O, The Oprah Magazine, to create a capsule collection and this dress is part of that collection.  (I love Talbots and Oprah, so I knew it would be good!)  My favorite part about this collection is that 30% of the net proceeds go to DRESS FOR SUCCESS.  This amazing organization is committed to helping women reach their fullest potential in life and work. According to the Dress For Success website, they are "an international not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, andante development tools to help women thrive in work and life."

You can give back and support Dress For Success in a few different ways.  First, you can purchase a piece from O, The Oprah Magazine collection from February 19 to March 31.  30% of the net proceeds from this collection go to Dress For Success.  During these dates, you can also make a monetary donation to Dress For Success at a Talbots store or on line HERE.

In addition to the partnership with Dress For Success, I love the details on this GREY MAXI DRESS and the fact that you can wear it multiple ways.  It has a flattering fit with a tie at the waist, cap sleeves and a side slit.  I dressed up the maxi a little by adding a fun leopard print scarf, some blush heeled sandals and matching blush accessories.   I plan to wear the dress in the cooler months layered under a blazer or denim jacket.  And for a more casual look, I am going to pair it with some slip on sneakers.  The possibilities are endless!


Before I go, I also have to share this adorable RAINCOAT and these pull on JEGGINGS that are also from Talbots.  Although they are not part of The Oprah Magazine collection, I wanted to share them because like the dress, they are versatile pieces that can be worn a bunch.  I love this raincoat so much I have even worn it when it isn't raining!  It is a perfect weight for Spring and I am in love with the color blocking.  And pull on jeggings can be worn with just about anything.  When you visit a Talbots store or their online shop to look at O, The Oprah Magazine capsule collection, you may want to take a look at these pieces too.
