Multiple Personalities



Dress (Nine West find at Marshalls); Skirt (JCPenney); Shoes (Tahari find at Marshalls)
Necklace (Consignment Shop); Earrings (Nordstrom); Bryan B Photography

This dress has multiple personalities... it can channel a retro vibe (seen here), double as a skirt (seen here), or perfectly compliment a bright skirt (like today).  One piece can be transformed into a variety of different looks - which is just one example of why fashion is so much fun :) You know what else has multiple personalities?  My little Rexxy.  His personalities in order of preference are: sweet and tired cuddle bug; playful ball chaser; wild and crazy gremlin; whiny baby; sassy and insubordinate; and nonstop barker - and if you listen closely, you can probably hear him barking right now...

Such a gorgeous color palette on this outfit. That dress was made to go with that skirt! hehe I love wearing dresses as shirts (or skirts!). hehe awww Rex is so sweet <3 My pup has all those personalities too, but isn't that why we love them?! :D

I really like the dress! At first I thought it was a top and skirt because the top and skirt are very different, but I like the contrast :) xx

The colour on that dress is gorgeous, I bet it's totally transeasonal too. That colour would work just as well in the summer as the fall. I thought I was already following you, oops now I have to catch up on all the great posts I've missed.

I'm happy for you that you've found so many uses for your top! Those kind of pieces are hidden wardrobe gems. I don't know about you, but often I discover the multiple uses only after purchase.

I love these fun, bright colors! I found a similar skirt at Target the other day, and I walked away from it. Now I want to go back and get it--that color is so pretty!

Bravoe Runway said...

I like this! The top has a nice vintage/retro vibe and the skirt is great! I've been looking for a pair of violet shorts or skirts for the summer! no luck, I'll find it in Sept when it's fall.
