Wardrobe Remix | 1 Dress 3 WaysWednesday, March 02, 2011
The F-bomb is still blasting on the home front, so I'm relegated to these confines until enemy lines start dissolving away. Which means booooo for missing the first 3 days of OC restaurant week, YAY for Khuuture sessions 101!
I've been digging around in the closet looking for new ways to style old treasures and came across a birthday gift I've been DYING to wear since receiving it last summer (thanks AP!). At first glance, this Bebe silk chiffon floor-length gown (above) may seem a bit too dressy for casual everyday wear and too casual for black tie affairs, but with the right accessories and appropriate trimmings, I'm sure I can bust this baby out 7 days a week without a hitch. However, we're just gonna start with 3 and see which ensemble will get me outta bed...
Look #1: Date Night- Dinner and a Movie
Layering a spring essential like a cozy crocheted sweater softens the deep V-neck of the gown without losing any feminine appeal. Peek-a-boo straps keep the look fresh and sexy with gold chains and brown leather anchoring the downtown vibe for a night out with the bf or the besties.
Deets: Thrifted sweater and belt, Cynthia Rowley Leather Hobo, Jessica Simpson necklace and platforms.
Look #2: A Girl About Town- Running errands...
Adding denim to anything immediately deems it casual and appropriate for everyday dressing. Especially when you're running errands but don't want to run out the door with what you wore to sleep (totally guilty!). Layer any stretchy black tee over the bodice, grab a messenger bag to free up your hands, flat boots for heavy mileage and presto-changeo! Super chic without looking like you tried so hard. Bonus points if you can include a bit of bling.
Deets: Gap Denim Jacket, H&M black tee, RJ Graziano Necklace, Vintage Messenger bag, Charles David Riding Boots.
Look #3: Cocktail Attire- Wedding Season
Wedding season gotcha worried about what to wear? Afraid to bust out the ol' leopard print fearing you'd look like a puma on the prowl? Black and bling is just the thing to level up from casual comforts so grab some faux fur and bejewel your look from head to toe! Rawr baby Rawr!!!
Deets: gifted MNG faux fur bolero, F21 necklace, ZigiNY jeweled sandals, gifted clutch from theHive, Costa Mesa.
Which look would you rock???
