Yesterday I posted a picture of a dress that I found hanging in my closet, a little lonely and unloved so far this season:
Exhibit A: Linear Landscape Maxi
Since buying this dress I have worn it quite a few times, mostly in the spring or summer months. It may be in the dead of winter here in the mid-west right now, but I felt like busting it out and bringing new life to it last week. I have often been perplexed with how to accessorize this dress with a necklace because of the V-neck. Call me crazy, but V-necks just stump me. I struggle with finding the right necklace to wear with them every time! This time I decided to do away with a necklace altogether and create a new look that I hadn't tried before:
And here's how it turned out in real life:
Original polyvore set for this look can be found HERE
Linear Landscape Maxi-Anthropologie
Cropped Denim Jacket-J Crew Factory
Scarf-birthday gift from my sis-in-law, Erin, a few years ago
Strung Hoop Earrings-Anthropologie
Sparkle Flower Ring-Banana Republic
Instead of trying to come up with a necklace to flatter the V-neck, I did away with it completely and went with a scarf! I wore it just like this all day long and it worked out perfect. I was excited to find a way to use what I already had in my closet to create this look...it was all just sitting there waiting to be remixed! =)
So did you take my challenge? Did you find something in your closet to remix and create a new look with? If so, I'd love to hear all about it! And see pictures too, if you have them! Leave me a comment telling me what you remixed and a link to a picture if you took one so we can all see! Perhaps I'll make this a regular post...remixing specific items in my closet. I definitely plan to remix a lot this year. I know I have tons of outfit possibilities in my closet...now it's time to create them!
Have a great day!
