Mixing it up

Monday, April 16, 2018

What can you do with those beautiful dressy dresses that are sitting in your closet BARELY getting worn?
Here's the solution.
Mix it up.
I love taking a dressy piece and mixing it with something casual. This way I get to wear those fancy dresses more often!
Like this beaded dress from Velvet.  I bought it at Uncommon Closet, the new Uncommon Threads consignment shop. All of the proceeds benefit Uncommon Threads and support our mission to empower women!  Big thank you to French Lessons Boutique for donating it. They are one of our treasured partners--we love businesses with a heart of gold!  Hope you'll like their Facebook page and check out their amazing styles! You can also find them on IG.

Here are other beaded dresses that can easily be toned down HERE (OMG LOVE!) and HERE (fabulous with a black leather jacket--comes in nude too!).
I love that this dress can be worn with dressy sandals for a formal affair or with a jean jacket (love the cut and fit of this one), and ankle boots (even flat sandals) for casual days.
If you're toning down a dressy outfit, make sure your bag is also on the casual side. This leather and suede bag keeps things relaxed. Very similar HERE and super reasonable!.
Life is short...wear the dress!

  2. You make it look so easy. I’d try something like that and my family would think I’d been drinking. Lol
