I know buying a plain dress or even a white button-up blouse doesn’t sound terribly exciting right? But imagine if you styled them an infinite number of ways, it opens up a world of possibilities. Not just for your wardrobe, but also for your wallet.
Elizabeth wore the same dress for 30 days. By using different accessories, shoes and lots of different layers, she was able to create a new look each day of the challenge!! Wowza! I am not advocating wearing the same article of clothing for an entire month, because I don’t think I would be up for such a challenge, but I encourage you to look thru the above experiment for inspiration on getting maximum mileage out of great basics.
So thru my closet I went, and realized I didn’t even own a LBD aka Little Black Dress (insert shameful face here). Do you? So I am definitely on the hunt for one. For now I put together some outfits below after finding this perfect little number.
And I am so crushing on Coral for Spring that I had to use it! I added some black leggings underneath the dress and a fun stretchy top and flats for running errands WITH my sprouts. I can totally see myself being able to use this outfit to an impromptu run to the park, which is an extra bonus!
Wish me luck on my LBD hunt, and look for a future post styling it.
Do you own a LBD dress? How have you styled it in the past? Feel free to leave links in the comments or email me at email@example.com. I would love to feature you!
