One Item Several Ways #1
Remember this dress I posted up a while back where I said I would do one of those posts where I try it on a million different ways and see what kind of coordinations look best? Well I did attempt it earlier this month but I really only got four decent looks out of it based on what little I have sitting in my dorm room closet.
Here I paired the dress up with some black leggings, striped socks, my trademark biker boots, and a pinstripe blazer I picked up at a thrift shop a while back. Not the best look, but for a casual day....
Goodness, these pictures really are shite, aren't they? Anyways, here I wore it with a faux leather vest, some simple flats, and a bit of statement jewelry. It makes for a great daytime look in the summer and transitions well for a night out also.
A little bit more school girl, I guess. I exchanged the vest for a ruffled black one and added some knee socks. A side ponytail makes it a bit girlier.
This was mostly just playing around. I think of this fondly as Headmistress of Wonderland Academy. I really wish I'd had time to tease up my hair for this look, but as it was just a quick run through of coordinates I cheated and forcibly held my hair up with my hands. ^_^
Now that I have new dresses and things, I might do more of these posts as I find ways of coordinating with them. Stay tuned.
