Dressing Down

I've always been an advocate of rewearing my separates in different ways with new accessories and layering. Recently I read about Keira Knightley's wedding dress remix and was inspired to do my own remix of a somewhat fancy dress. This dress isn't quite as formal as Knightley's Chanel number, but because its first outing was to homecoming in high school, I labeled it as "for the upscale events". I think I managed to make it more casual with a boyfriend blazer, a miniskirt and good boots.

Here I am wearing it with some arm candy (aka the boyfriend) and some more hair on my head:

And here's the same dress under a faux leather skirt:

 And again, this time belted:

  1. This is a lovely idea!! I have a lot of party dresses that I would love to wear in a more casual way! I actually did a blog post where I wore a white lace dress in two ways; one fancy, one casual!

  2. Love the different ways you've styled the dress, such a great idea!
