Recently, I went on a date that ended in disaster.   Fortunately, the outfit I wore was so awesome, it almost didn’t matter.  Almost.

For Christmas, I got the grey dress I’m wearing below.  It’s a great piece because it is so simple to match – grey is basically a black alternative.  Dressing cute in winter isn’t always the easiest thing – how do you make bulk look sexy?  But, this dress is a light knit – a sweater dress that doesn’t add a ton of bulk.   I belted it to further define my waist, paired it with leggings and ankle strap shoes (ankle strap shoes and leggings are a tricky combination.  They can make legs look very stocky, so ask a friend if it works before attempting), and topped it off with a colorful scarf so I didn’t look like I was going to a funeral.  The scarf has several different colors in it, and I chose to pull out the orange with some dangly earrings.

Tomorrow, I’m going to show you how I made this same dress look completely different two days later.  That’s my favorite thing to do – remix outfits.  I try to seldom wear the exact outfit twice, so I have to get creative sometimes.  You can be the judge tomorrow of how well I did.
