I've been doing some casual searches the last few nights online for long sleeve winter dresses and have come up seriously short. It's hard to find one that isn't: a wedding dress, cowl neck, lacy, mini skirt, open back (or bust), wrap dress, super slouchy, or bohemian. I don't know why, but i don't want a dress that is any of these things.
Here's just a taste of what I found:
Rachel Berry, anyone?
Cute, although short.
Mini skirt, maxi hole
I kind of love this but I could never sport it
I like this mock-wrap
This one is cute, but has no form.
Which I guess is okay for mannequin-esque humans like this lady pictured.
Sweater mini. Cute, but still a bit chilly, right?
I like the boat neck, but that's about it.
Forget that this model is strangling herself with that beautiful sting of turquoise beads.
I actually love this
This designer (xiaolizi) has several charming long sleeve dresses:

So what do you think? Do you even own any long sleeve dresses? I don't even have any in my wardrobe. I usually wear winter dresses and skirts with sweaters anyway. But, I hate to admit that I wore a long wool skirt to work yesterday and wore knee-highs and my winter snow boots underneath. I need a nice pair of leather boots for Christmas - something I can wear with a dress. But I was glad I wore the boots, I had to tromp through about a foot of snow throughout the day as I walked around the Aviary - I didn't regret the fashion crime at all. It was so practical.
