Versatility: Think Outside the Box






{Shirt: c/o Denim Lily} {Vest: Express Similar/On Sale} {Bracelets: Wet Seal Similar}
{Shoes: Charlotte Russe Super Sale}{Skirt: old Identical} {Sunnies: c/o Kameleonz}

This is the last part of my three part series in which I styled this fab denim dress from Denim Lily 3 different ways. You can find part one HERE and part two HERE

I want to show women that buying pieces that can be worn multiple ways is not only good for the budget, but makes for a very fun wardrobe!

I went a little out of the box and looked at the dress in a new way. I decided to tie it up and make it into a shirt! It's a fun, fresh look that was the perfect layering piece for this leather vest.

Look in your closet today and try to see your current pieces in a whole new light--you will be surprised with what you come up with!!

  29. I agree with your advise at the end of the post. We all should look at our closets that way. That outfit turned out so cute and I must try it with my own similar pieces. I adore that biker vest.


    Welcome by sometime. I miss seeing you. Have a great St. Patty's Day!

  32. Tuesdays are usually my days for looking through blogs, and it has felt like there has been a consistent theme of outfit remixing! and I love it! Always important to find different ways to wear a favorite piece, otherwise we would all have way too much stuff! Great remixing!

  35. Love how you knotted the chambray! It's so important to pair tighter bottoms when you style a loose top, and you nailed it with the pencil skirt!
