KB: If I may just “steal” one piece from the assortment, it might most certainly be the Magical Dress. I really like any piece that may be worn over and below different clothes. I might most certainly put on it over any denims, military pants, or thick males’s lengthy lingerie, an enormous sweater over it, after which possibly a boot with excessive heel. And possibly even a too-tight menswear jacket over the entire factor. As many layers as conceivable for me. And if I may just toss in a contrasting print shawl tucked into the neck of the sweater, even higher!
