Dress Remix



Blazer (Kohls); Sweater (Limited); Dress (Taylor: Marshalls); Shoes (Ellen Tracy: Marshalls);
Necklace (vintage); Earrings (Nordstrom)

Looking fabulous for less isn't just about scoring great deals or shopping at places that won't break the bank... remixing pieces are a great to way to give new life to items you've always worn a certain way and get more longevity out of your closet.  It's sort of like finding an ex after some time and realizing there is still potential - although that never happens. Remixing old boyfriends is a bad idea... trust me :)

Other ways I've worn this dress below (I also remixed the "hand on hip" pose)

Heather- that's a great dress. I love the versatility of it, and I think today's layers are my favorite incarnation. And there's nothing wrong with recycling a great pose!

Vang said...

That's a great color combination. I feel better about shopping knowing that I can remix an item of clothing over and over.

I love your sense of humor, that last line made me laugh quite love the soft blush colors of your jacket and top, it's such a fun color mix with the bright blue of your dress.

Laura said...

Great colors together, and I love that you showed the other ways you remixed this dress too - so resourceful! :)

Jenny said...

That's certainly a cute dress! I love the bow (?) detail on the top and the way how it sits on top of your sweater in today's outfit! You did amazing remixing this dress three completely different ways!
