This week I partnered with Modcloth for a special remix. They sent me this lovely striped dress and I styled it five different ways that I'd wear it this spring and summer. It's still a bit chilly here so the second outfit in this post is how I wore the dress for the rest of the day. I really enjoyed the challenge building several different looks around one piece. When I started my blog in college remixing was a necessity--I was a full-time student and part-time jobs didn't leave much income for new clothes. In the process of developing my style though I grew to really enjoy the creativity it takes to wear one piece in multiple ways; it stopped being a necessity and became an integral part of my personal style. Remixes are also a nice balance to the endless consumption fashion blogs seem to promote. You don't need new pieces every season, you don't need to buy a new dress for every occasion--looking stylish (to me) is more about creativity than the size of your wardrobe. Anyway, visit Modcloth's blog to see the three other ways I styled this dress.
