Work Your Wardrobe


If you have been following along my blog, you'll see a repetitive trend from my last few posts.  As stated in those previous posts, I'm getting the most bang for my buck out of my wardrobe.  By that, I mean wearing skirts as shirts and so forth.  I showcased this fabulous chevron print maxi skirt this week, wearing it as a dress here (in case you missed that post.)  Today, I'm wearing it as a shirt.  You can easily do this with any skirt you own and "make it work", as the famous Tim Gunn would say...lol.  
There are sooo many ways I can envision wearing this piece, and I truly believe it will become a work horse in my wardrobe.  For instance, I could add a denim jacket and flats as a casual look or dress it up for the office wearing a black blazer.  And ooooh, add a leather moto jacket and some rad black boots or booties for an edgy chic look.  Hmmm, grabs note pad...lol. 
As my style evolves, I can honestly say that it's not what you wear, but how you wear it.  I encourage you guys to wear what you love.  Have fun with fashion.  Discover new ways to wear what you already have.  Mix it up with different pieces.  "Make it work"...lol.  I'm starting a new hashtag on my Instagram.  I would love for you guys to participate and inspire myself and others showcasing your take on a style you have remixed from your closet.  If you could please use #kurvyclosetplay so that I can see all of you fantastic fashionistas at werk! 
Outfit Details:
Chevron Print Maxi ~ Old and remixed several times
Red Skirt ~ It's Fashion ($5.99 *gasp*)
Pumps ~ Payless $20
Clutch ~ Family Dollar ($5 old) 


 
Which look is your favorite?

  7. Another great way to wear that dress. I love how both outfits came out. Alone I would never have guess that they are are from the same dress.

  10. I love this! I recently saw a blogger style a dress as a shirt as well and loved the results so I can't wait to try some more of this and get creative and have "fun". Cute skirt/shirt.
    This dress was made for you, so cute! Congrats to your aunt!
