One Dress, Three Looks!

Sorry I haven't posted anything up since last week but things have been busy and I didn't have time to take outfit pictures or edit. But here's a new post and I decided to focus it around one dress and just come up with three different looks. 

I know that sometimes you look in your closet and think you have nothing to wear, but there are numerous outfits you can come up with with just a few pieces! I am definitely guilty of saying I don't have anything to wear and run out to buy new clothes but I'm trying very hard to use what I have and be creative with it. Plus, it makes it kinda more fun! 

Anyways, so here's the dress I'm going to use. It's a dark glittery bandage dress. I chose something that's slightly harder to work with. I could have chosen a very versatile plain black dress, but let's have a little fun and make it a little more difficult!

Dress: Papaya (Similar HERE and HERE)

Look #1
My first looks is a casual everyday look you can wear. I used the dress as a skirt and threw a tank and cardigan over it. The sparkle kinda adds a little something to the outfit but it's still very wearable for just an everyday look! I didn't want the footwear to make it too dressy so I threw on my leather boots.

Top: H&M (Similar HERE)
Cardigan: Target (Similar HERE)
Boots: Payless (Similar HERE)
Necklace: Charise Noel

Look #2
For a dressier look, I used the dress as a top. I put on a full black skirt over it and added a white blazer. You can wear this for a date or a night out or a very dressy day look. I'm always so mono-colored/chromed or whatnot so I added my bright red pumps for some extra dazzle! Remember, if you wear a skirt over your dress, to tuck your dress in or make sure your skirt covers it. I noticed in my last picture that the dress was peaking out underneath my skirt, but I guess I can just say I went for a peplum look ;)

Skirt: (Similar HERE and HERE)
Shoes: Gojane (Similar HERE)
Necklace: Forever21 (Similar HERE)

Look #3
The last look took me a little while to figure out but I wanted to find something to wear underneath the dress this time, so I put on a basic scoopneck white t-shirt. This makes it look like a completely different dress. A little more feminine and slightly more casual.

Boots: Aldo (Similar HERE)

What do you guys think?! Did I do a good job? I wore the dress as a skirt, top, and changed it into a different dress completely. Which one's your favorite?


  1. I love this feature! Outfit #2 is my favorite, but all three are great looks showing the versatility of this dress. =)
