Today, I have a favor to ask of you. And if you appease my offer, I shall try to return the favor.
You all have a brain. You all get dressed in the morning (on most days, at least, lest you wear pajamas all day on a weekend once in a while – it’s cool – I’ve done it). And you all have a unique personal style. Today, I’d like to foster a remix exchange.
Surely most of us have an item or two in our closets that we just can’t figure out how to remix. We rely on one really amazing way to wear it, but then end up at a loss for ideas to breathe a second life into it, wear it for a different occasion, or usher it into a new season. So today, I’m encouraging everyone to share in the comments about one of these finicky pieces that just doesn’t want to play nice with everything else in your closet.
In the comments, describe or share a link to the article of clothing in your closet plaguing your remixing efforts. Don’t forget you don’t have to be a blogger to have a link. The photo could be on Facebook, Instagram, Google+… whatever. And you don’t even need a link, it’s completely optional!
When describing this piece, we’d love to hear as many details as possible (the color, silhouette, fabric, length, pattern, what you love or hate about it, why it plagues you, etc… whatever helps us to envision this item to the fullest). After sharing about this item, check out all the other comments and see if you have any suggestions for others. How great would it feel to make someone’s style day by personally inspiring them to stretch their style in a new and exciting direction?As for all of you who leave a request for suggestions showing your “impossible to remix” piece, I’ll do my best to offer a new styling option to try for each of you. How’s that sound?
As a primarily work wear style blog, I’d love to see how you’re wearing something to work or maybe looking to transition a weekend piece into the office (or vice versa). Maybe you’re just in search of a new way to wear a work piece for another day at your desk. But no worries, work style isn’t required.
I’ve chosen my Missoni chevron dress. I wore it to a wedding with my Jimmy Choo heels (no photo for the wedding style), and I wore it with all black for cooler weather, layered with a black blazer, tights, and boots. I really love this dress and would love to find more unique ways to wear it to work. What do you think? How else can I dress this up for the office?
So let’s hear from you? What stubborn piece causes you frustration in your closet? Also, how can you encourage and inspire the rest of us with new ideas to break an old piece out of style rut?
Let the Remix Exchange begin! See you in the comments!
Update: Since posting this, I’ve switched from Blogger to WordPress. In that transition, I lost all the previous comments. Hopefully the future rounds will be as great as this one was!
