Before Juicy Couture, there was Norma Kamali deftly designing "sweats" that brought a lot of class to a fabric associated with medicine balls and stinky high school gyms. The early 80s red fleece maxi dress below is the ultimate in casual and athletic dressing. Throw it on over your Lululemons and you can go from home to yoga with some flair. Add a vintage YSL belt as we did below and opaque tights with flat boots and you can fly from Chicago looking chic en route to Chile. Of course if you have a long haul flight may we suggest you also carry the Hermes Red Garance 40 cm Epsom Birkin along for the ride? It suddenly makes the Kamali as luxurious as Loro Piana Baby Cashmere!

Hermes Epsom Leather 40 cm Birkin with palladium hardware, L Stamp/2008. Plastic removed, but flawless and unused with detailed photos upon request SOLD
Norma Kamali red fleece snap front maxi dress, c. early 1980s. Marked Petite!!! (are you kidding?) Anyway, it's one size fits all and it isn't perfect...very slight soilage that did not come out with dry cleaning, but its a sweat shirt!
