Tenue du jour - A dress in Winter

I like wearing dresses in Winter but often have trouble finding ones that aren't made in synthetic or in very light cotton, both not recommended materials to keep warm.

About 3-4 years ago, I bought 3 knitted dresses on ebay and in consignment stores.
Since then I've relied on them every winter for casual and professional looks as they're incredibly easy : just add a tee or an oxford shirt underneath, tights, flat or high-heeled boots and you're ready to go.
The one I'm wearing, an ebay score, by Vanessa Bruno is among my favourite, I like how the simple add of the lace makes it special. 

This season, it's a Celine dress I would like to own. 

The color block knit looks very casual and relaxed worn by Sofia Coppola but add a white shirt underneath, a smart coat and the look gets more polished.
