Where to shop for sleeved dresses

Thank you, Eve Pollard, for acknowledging a gaping hole in the dress industry – where are all the dresses with sleeves?! Women love sleeves for many reasons, camouflage being one of them, but chic styles are hard to come by. Eve went so far as to design her own line. Check it out at Eve at Donna… or…


Nordstrom’s site has a 3-page section entirely devoted to dresses with sleeves. I love them.

    as a women of a certain age I need elegant dresses with sleeves that flatter my not so young figure.
