1 Dress, 3 Ways

I'm turning over the blog today to one of my lovely sponsors, D'Rae! She's got great fashion sense, so I'm really excited about this post! Enjoy. :)


Today I would like to take a dress and show you three ways of wearing it. I have a bad habit of wearing an item of clothing one way all the time. So I thought it would be fun to take one dress and give three different outfits from that one dress.

I chose a denim chambray dress from Kohls. I styled these looks using things I would wear or currently own. (after writing this post, I am actually thinking about buying that dress!) First up is what to wear on the weekend. I choose a cross body bag to keep your hands free while you are browsing the farmers market or shopping at the mall. A white crochet cardigan will help keep you looking and feeling cool. Tom's shoes are just comfortable and cute!


Next up we have a very simple work-wear look. Obviously this is for more of a laid back kind of office setting since I have chosen a denim dress and opened toed shoes. A cute owl brooch sows off your playful side and a patterned cardigan helps keep the look more polished.

Work Wear

Last up I am showing how to dress it up for a dressy casual event. I'm sort of thinking this would look good for a dinner date. I have chosen basic black flats and a beaded cardigan for this look.

Dinner Time

I hope that this helps give you all some ideas on how to take one item and wear it more than one way.

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

Vintage Travel Poster

One of our projects this coming term is to do a computer illustration of a painted vintage travel poster. I've been Googling some options and here are some that I like. Which would you pick?

80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.

My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
