Get More from Your Wardrobe

One Piece Three Ways

I have a few rules when shopping:

1. Don’t drink and shop (I’ll never forget the regrettable sweater incident of 2011);

2. Don’t shop on an empty stomach, you want to be thinking clearly;

3. Don’t buy a piece unless you can visualize it with three distinct outfits using items you already have in your wardrobe.

The last rule is important because you don’t want to end up with a fantastic top that works only one way. Who wants to be seen in the same look over and over again? Not I.

So friends, I give you a new post: One Piece Three Ways.

The piece:

Romper: Dynamite

Look One: Drinks With the Girls

Necklace:  Evernew
Clutch: American Apparel
Shoes: Nine West
Lippy: MAC Fuscia Fusion

Look Two: Casual Saturday

Necklace: Guess
Jean Jacket: Mavi
Purse: Rebecca Minkoff
Booties: Little Burgundy

Look Three: Beach Day

Sunnies: Barefoot Contessa
Beach Bag: Bath and Bodyworks (gifted)
Sandals: American Eagle Outfitters
Bikini: Victoria’s Secret

These are just a few of the looks I can create with this romper. I could also add tights, boots, and a sweater for winter or pair it with a skirt and wear it as a top. The possibilities are endless. If you don’t have a romper, swap it out for a sundress! This is just a small sample of the ways you can create unique looks by changing the accessories.

Do you think about versatility when you’re shopping? I’d love to hear your tips!

Outfit of the Day

I don’t know if you guys are interested in what I’m wearing, but I certainly am! The only reason I don’t do outfit posts is that I don’t have a photographer (I seem to be the only single gal in the blogosphere); however, I’ve decided to do one and see how you like it!

So, without further ado here is what I’m wearing today! Please excuse the poor iPhone photo, it’s the best I could do:)

OOTD

Top: Guess, Skirt: Kensie, Boots: Aldo, Tights: eBay, Necklace: House of Harlow 1960, Ring: Etsy, Watch: Belonged to my dad

I bought this skirt from Beyond the Rack two or three years ago and it’s one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. I find myself reaching for it at least once a week!
