Dress-ing multiple ways

by - Monday, August 30, 2010

I must have bought today's dress at least 5 years ago (time sure does fly!). Back then, I would only wear it on special occasions, and I certainly wouldn't wear it any other way other than toss it over my head :P (as pictured on left). What was I thinking -- the dress looks so shapeless and long on me?! Adding a wide belt sure helps make it look less like a sack (pictured on right). Granted, the belt makes the outfit look more casual, but it looks so much more put together.

The outfit I actually wore out to run errands today (pictured left below), is a modern take on the same dress pictured above. I wasn't sure the dress would work as a top at first because by itself, it hits me a bit below the knees! Where was I going to hide all that fabric?! Luckily by pulling it out of the skirt a bit and bunching some of it around the waist seemed to do the trick :) Of the four outfits pictured, this one is definitely my favorite. I think next time I try this outfit, I'll pick a longer skirt though. The last outfit (pictured right below) was for fun... my take on the country-club-prep-look :P
