Horseshoe


Shop Horseshoe asked me to do a wee remix for them and I chose their sandrine dress for its pretty shades of teal and that "so hot this spring" touch of mint (besides how could I resist working with a shop who's name works so well with my own..?). I decided to keep things rather simple--the most basic color palette using the exact shades in the dress and not introducing anything but neutrals. Sometimes it's not about clashing patterns or bright colors but just pieces with a new shape or distinctive style. For example: the dress gives a decidedly different "vibe" when paired with the gladiator sandals as opposed to little kitten heels. The dress actually struck me as a perfect beach layer; the sort of piece you throw over your swimsuit and hang-out in all day...but perhaps I just have the beach on my mind!

Love these outfits, they're so creative! My favourites are 1 and 3, but I can't pick between the two! xx

Definitely! I love remixing - there are endless ways to wear a piece [or two or three!]. Neutrals definitely bring that perfect balance between outfits and really makes that statement piece a statement piece. Loving the different looks you've got going on. It goes to show you can really turn an outfit into something formal, casual, or in-between by changing a few minor things. Also, that teal is such a lovely colour on you! Such a nice contrast with your red hair!

True, true. With the kitten heels looks more mature, and twith the gladiator sandals it gives a summer feeling. If I have to pick one, the second and the third one.

Hugs!

The last outfit is my favourite, I love that skirt. Such a great shape/silhoutte.

I really like seeing your hair grow. Not that i didn't like the short hair but it really suits you well like this :)
Will you let them grow again?

@Anonymous, yeah I'm in the process of growing it out--I'm trying to get to a bob length. I might dye it some weird color this summer too. :) I'm still just having fun with my hair.

Hi Rebecca! Definitely loving how you styled that dress (with the last pic as my most favorite - simple, clean, lady-like with a hint of sophistication).

Living in a place with four seasons really helps in styling and remixing clothes. Now that I'm back in the tropics, it just feels hard to wear a stylish outfit that will suit the hot and (very) humid weather. Nevertheless, it will not stop me from looking and finding inspiration in your blog. =)

I would love to see how the special shoes look with tights on (why not?)

Natasha said...

I love remix posts. The look with the sweater is exactly the way I dress in winter.

Gina said...

Fun remix. That dress has possibilities for many moods! I would love to know if the shoes and accessories are from HorseShoe too. More details please!

Rebecca Jane said...

Every single outfit is so fantastic. You really are the remixing queen

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

@Gina, Sorry shoes and all other pieces are my own. It got sort of complicated listing them so I didn't. You can find everything listed in past posts, but if it's a specific item you want to know about I can answer here and save you the search.

Where are the gladiators from?
I love the different look you achieve in each one just simply changing accessories

I love your remixes! How do you get your layers to always look so good?? I tried putting a shirt over a dress to make it look like a skirt and a skirt over a dress before but I always feels like it turns out bumpy and silly! Yours are always seam-less. What is your secret?!

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

@Jade Stuart Weitzman!

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

@MichelleM, it really is all about the particular layer--if I layer a skirt over a dress I make sure it is a heavier skirt, my short one is like a denim and my longer one has a couple of layers to it. Same with shirts/blouses/sweaters, if they're pretty sturdy or heavy then it helps avoid bumps. I also try to make certain the layer underneath is relatively light/thin. Some pieces won't work.
