LBD Co-Lab Look #4 One Thing is Not Like the Other

Cropped Moto Jacket: TJ Maxx, LBD, Belt: The Possibilities Shop,

Skirt: Handmade Vintage (via Downtown Threads), Tights: Gifted

Moccasins: Minnetonka (via The Kittery Trading Post)

This outfit put me a bit outside my comfort zone. Normally I wouldn’t have thought to use a LBD as a top because of it’s length, but Carolyn assured me it would work and  I really liked how it turned out. I doubt many people would realize it was a dress.

The cropped cut of the jacket and the thin belt draw the eye in at my waist adding shape to my silhouette. Usually I wouldn’t have paired this look with moccasins but Carolyn insisted that they gave the outfit the Burlingtonian vibe it was missing and I went with it. I ended up kind of liking the unexpected vibe the moccasin gave the outfit.

I think that I’m going to start layer more dresses under skirts and vise versa. Using them as layering pieces gives you so many more remixing options. I love how this dress looked as a top (an LBT). I can definitely see myself wearing this outfit again but I would probably change up the shoes, swapping the mocs out for a pair of bright pumps or booties.

Do you layer skirts and dresses a lot? What do you think of the mocs with this outfit? What shoes would you stly this outfit with?

  3. The print on that skirt is so up my alley, and I’m digging the length as well- midi lengths on so on-trend right now but even if they weren’t, they’re such a classic, classy silhouette. And I think the moccasins are an unexpected combination with the look and they do give it a sort of down-town vibe. Very cool with the jacket.
    Layering dresses under skirts is my number one remix tool. It makes packing for trips so much easier too!
