HAPPY FRIDAY! Ready for today outfit?
So as a stylist, one needs to be very open to versatility and creativity as it refers to fashion. It can be difficult to find exactly what we may be looking for while shopping and that can lead to the need to get creative.
While out thrifting, I came across a vintage Dress that sort of has an aged look, what you might wear over a certain age. The print of the dress is what appealed to me first. Houndstooth is very popular this season and so is velvet. This dress is detailed with velvet that makes the houndstooth not only stand out but also makes the dress classic. The gold buttons also add a classic effect.
The classic appeal of this dress was beyond what I could just pass on. I decided to still grab it and repurpose it to wear it as a Cardigan. It serves this purpose perfectly! I paired it a faux suede dress and ankle boots. I wanted the star of this look to be this dress styled as cardigan. My hoop earrings balance the vintage, classic feel of this cardigan so the entire look has a modern appeal. I will definitely be doing more of these kinds of looks, thrifting dresses and repurposing them as cardigan.
Cardigans have become so popular and that has caused the prices of them to rise. Not to mention that so many of them look the same. Repurposing a dress allows for individuality and creativity. Have you thrifted and recently and repurposed a good piece? Please share!
Enjoy your weekend Cupcakes!
