DRESS TO IMPRESS – SAME DRESS, 4 WAYS
For those that have just started following my blog – I decided that (for various reasons) my 2013 New Years resolution would be to not purchase any new items of clothing for an entire year. So far it has been challenging yet so satisfying as I become more creative with my outfits.
This week, I chose one of my oldest dresses by Cue to take on the first week of the 1item, 4 ways challenge. I wore this same dress in a different way for this entire working week, and not one person in the office noticed that it was the same dress which is great! In fact, I hope that they continue not to notice me repeatedly wearing the same items for the next 3 weeks of this February challenge.
Day 35 – Layer the dress with a colourful blouse and patterned blazer. This works extremely well when you are working with a simple dress.

Day 36 – Wear a short sleeve blouse underneath and couple it with a cardigan over the top. Definitely gives it that cute appeal.

Day 37 – Anyone ever think of wearing a skirt over your dress? When I told my husband that I was going to do this, he thought I was being silly but to his surprise he loved the result of this combination.

Day 38 – With my new addiction to wearing tops over dresses, I did just that. With a pretty black blouse worn over my dress, I also added some essential accessories so that it wouldn’t look so boring.

Whether you have a small or massive wardrobe, I am hoping that after reading this blog, you are considering to do as I do and begin to mix and match more often. You will be surprised how satisfying it really is and just think of all the money you could save for things you REALLY need.
Until next week. xx
