One of my favorite parts of In Style magazine or Lucky is when they take one article of clothing and show you different ways to style it. The cheapskate and artist in me loves that! Making the most of my wardrobe while exercising my creativity. So, here's my take on my lovely vintage dress I wore yesterday. What surprised me was that the look that I thought I'd like the most (the long ivory vest) was actually the look I like the least. I just think it might be a bit heavy for the dress...but I'm willing to play with it some more. I wear a pair of black lace up boots in one of the looks that I used to think had to be worn with an ankle length skirt or pants. When I put it on with this dress, I got my second surprise: I really like it with shorter length dresses! Serendiptiy!!
I think I may have stumbled upon a weekly series: Taking one garment and styling it multiple ways. It's great to withdraw all rules and take some of the most dissimilar styles and blending them for fabulous results. I can't wait to come up with more surprising combinations. That way I get to say "Serendipity" all the time!
