One Dress, Two Ways

I have recently challenged myself to use creativity in wearing the items already in my closet so that I can tone down my impulsive shopping ways. Glad that my efforts are paying off, though, because it has been over a month since my last purchase (hurray for that!). 


If you can recall from my previous post here and here, I've been all about re-wearing my clothes and letting my creativity take over. I'm so glad to know that I can actually survive without buying something new all the time given my already heaping closet. It's actually funny that I stumble onto other bloggers that were also having the same dilemma of having a full closet but feeling like you have nothing to wear. Glad I am not alone in this battle. HAHA


And so I decided to chronicle the same blue skater dress that I've featured in the past and showcase a different way that I've styled it. The previous style showcase was very simple and subtle. I wanted the dress to become the focal point of my outfit. But this time around, I played it up a bit with a multi-colored bauble necklace, white cardigan, and open-toe nautical flats. I feel like the second look is more feminine and delicate. 

What do you think of my reinvented look?

  1. Isn't it great to find different ways to wear your existing pieces? I love that, and it makes me feel like I'm getting my money's worth, along with being more creative! You look lovely, and I adore the blue color of that dress!
