Red and White Stripes by Day

For the next three days, I will be featuring one dress, three ways. I love getting requests from readers.  It is such a fun way to engage, and makes me feel more connected to readers. In this particular instance, I was asked to create an ensemble on a budget. The dress is the main ingredient, and you will see how the look can be completely transformed with a few interchangeable accessories. I believe everything in your closet can be used and reused. No need to kill your bank account, and it's fun to get creative!

This first look was put together for a day outing.  I can see shopping with the girls, or a casual brunch. Dresses such as this are so easy and versatile.  Just throw on and go!  This one cost a whopping $37.99! I love my denim jacket.  There isn't an outfit with which it doesn't jive.

Throw a belt of contrasting color into the mix, for a fun twist. The bracelets, earrings, necklace and clutch are all staples that have been in my collection for ages.  Just use what you've got!

Adding a little braid to one or both sides of your hair is a fun twist. Throw on a great pair of sunnies, and you are ready to go! I'll see you again tomorrow for a work ensemble interpretation.

Dress: Pink & Blue at South Park Mall, here's one in red and white, and one in black and white,  Jacket: Gap (old), but here's one, Belt: Pink & Blue at South Park Mall, I also love this one, Sunglasses: Blinde, but here's a less expensive, similar pair.  Sandals: fibi & clo, All jewelry old, but here's my new favorite statement ring, Clutch: Coach (old), here's a similar one.

For the love of great style and re-style...
