One Dress, So Many Ways..



I’m wearing my Feeling Khaki H&M dress again! (Shoes: Charlotte Russe)

This weekend I had the pleasure of working with Kasmira from What I Wore Today and Amy from Cinci Chic in a Cincinnati Locals On Living Savings Summit event!  It was a ton of fun and I got to meet a lot of great people who are interested in the same things – fashion for less, health, and good food!

I helped out by remixing this basic shirt dress in multiple ways – what better way to find savings than to mix up what you already have (instead of buying something else!)?  I may have a lot of clothes, but people probably think I have more than I do because I actually do use this remixing trick so often!








Below are ways I remixed this dress for the event.  Please be gentle – these shots were taken for demo only at about 7am on a Saturday morning, so no make up, hair done...!

Remix #1: Color Change Up


Remix #2: Layering


Remix #3: Dressy


I tried on some other outfits before deciding on the above 3 looks for the event.  I chose the above because they worked with Kasmira’s themes and were easy enough to change into and get back on stage in under 2 minutes, but I liked some of the other remix practice-outfits as well!  Here’s a quick look at some of the other versions I tried:

So creative! I love seeing how people remix their clothes - helps inspire me to wear mine different ways too!

That is really impressive. They all look great! I think my faves are the plain dress, and then remix 3 but honestly, that remix #2 makes me want to wear it too. Amazing remixes!

Rebecca said...

I really learned from this post! I especially liked the "dressy" look - although they are ALL really great!

My FAVORITE is absolutely Remix #1. I love the blue and the pink!!! What a great way to spice up a simple gray dress.

Kasmira said...

Oh, this is AWESOME! I'm so glad you took pics because I didn't get enough of staring at your mixes in person.

Ooooo, what a great dress. My fav is the last one with the biker jacket.

I'm glad I'm not the only woman who enjoys "playing dress up"! I often do this for more ideas on how to remix my clothes. All of your ensembles are fabulous. I think my favorite is the casual look with the red handbag. So clean and classic.

Awesome remixing ideas.....remixing really is the way to go to make your closet seem likes it's over flowing with new things when in reality your just using things you already have in new fun!!!

WOW THAT'S A TON OF OPTIONS FOR ONE SIMPLE, GRAY SHIRT-DRESS. ;-) I love the 1st and 3rd remix, I especially adore the 1st, it's sassy, fun & colorful. I also like it with the green blouse and red clutch; with the red cardigan, black skirt & cute flower belt; and the very last one with the zippered cropped black jacket and delish coral pumps. ;-)
