Fedora: Charlotte Ruse, LBD, Belt: Old Navy,
Skirt: Vintage (via BTV CLothing Swap), Tights: Gifted, Boots: Gifted
This outfit really pushed me out of my comfort zone and I am so thankful! Normally I wouldn’t consider mixing patterns so freely but I trusted Carolyn and I wasn’t disappointed. I love how the pattern of the tights and the skirt are complementary in a clashing way.
The belt is a little big for me so we pinned it it the back. The stripes and woven detailing on the front tie in the fedora and add a lighter, more summery feel to this LBD remix look.Transitioning the look from spring to summer is a snap!
Again we turned the LBD into a LBT and the outcome in my opinion was a triumph! I would wear this outfit again in a heart beat and plan on it!
A huge thank you to Carolyn of Fig Dreams Clothing & Designs for helping me see not only my LBD but my whole wardrobe in new ways. Having Carolyn’s input was like being able to see how your friend would wear your clothes without having to give any of them up.
This remixing project helped me try new trends and pushed me out of my comfort zone (both good things in my opinion). I think that I will definitely open myself up to new trends, styles, and ideas more because of this project. It was great to be able to see my wardrobe and my style through Carolyn’s eyes. Even if it was only for a short period of time it provided me a lot of perspective.
Have you ever done a remixing challenge? What was your favorite LBD remix look? How would you have remixed an LBD?
