Looks nice and sounds very versatile! Could we see pictures showing the entire garment, and the turtle neck? Perhaps both on the dress and separately? Thanks for the review!

I edited to delete a duplicate and got a 3rd! Only hoping this doesn't generate a 4th! If it does, Help!

You have encouraged me to take another look at this dress, as I didn't see much in it the first time. I love your removable collar idea, too!

WOW. You sure know how to rock a dress! Love the removeable cowl idea.

WOW, what a transformation! I have to say, your version is oh so much classier than the one pictured in the magazine. This dress has great lines and perfect details. All of your photos and the various ways in which you've accessorized the dress are SO PRETTY!

This looks great. I love your idea of the removable turtleneck. It really gives you some nice options.
