While the Lori and Maria have officially kicked off The Day and Night Dress Challenge, the vloggers are getting into the action too today. First up is Dawn of Duelling Designs with her too cool to cut fabric and winter cozy look. Her chosen sleeveless black dress is getting quite the wearable upgrade!!

Winter cozy for the Day look

black sleeveless dress paired with oversweater and a sheer embroidered duster jacket

A lot of times wearing a sweater with a dress can be an afterthought. It’s something you do because it’s freezing outside but dang it, you still want to wear a dress. Dawn’s sweater for her day look though does such an awesome job bringing on the toasty while still incorporating the dress.

Asymmetry makes everything better, and this is a good one!!!!

Too cool to cut for the Night look

For her night look, she’s cutting into some fabulous embroidered fabric to make a sheer duster. This one will be elegant wherever it takes her!
