old dress {new tricks}




Vest: Alexander Wang (similar style here on sale!); Dress: Topshop (similar style here); Shoes: c/o Sigerson Morrison; Clutch: Celine; Sunglasses: Celine; Lips: Nars "Heat Wave"

There's nothing quite as satisfying as finding new ways to wear an old dress. Take this white pleated Topshop dress I picked up last summer for instance. I've worn it with a leather corset (seen here), numerous slouchy sweaters (seen here and here), and even as a beach cover up (seen here). I've been meaning to pair it with this vest for some time now and rather liked the mixed proportions feel of it. Any pieces in your closet you love remixing?

  2. I think it would look better without that vest, it cuts you off at an unflattering point and throws off your proportions.

  14. Gorgeous way to style this dress! Of all the ways you styled it, I think my favorite is the leather corset version because it's so unexpected!

  23. I don't love this vest on you, kind of overwhelming. But I do love how you are always taking risks. You have such fearless style!

  25. Love the Wang vest. I loke the outfit overall but would be aware of proportion. I don't know how tall you are, but you look a little on the short side ( I'm only 5'3 myself). The length of the dress and the shoes with the ankle straps cuts you off and makes your legs look a little shorter than they probably are. But I do like the concept!
