There are those certain dresses that we can wear as skirts or skirts we can wear as dresses. Let's call them "dirts". Get it? Dresses + skirts = "dirts". Or, you could go with skirts + dresses = "skresses". Whatever floats your metaphorical boat. Anyhoo, I'm not here to argue names. I'm here to tell you that when you find a dirt or skress, you get two potential outfits in one. I came across this Language Los Angeles dress I bought a few years back while I was spring cleaning. I wanted a look that was casual to run around town to do errands but looked cute and kept me comfortable. So I pulled this dress down to my waist, threw on a BCBG tank, FreePeople knit crop sweater, belt and tie up sandals. To remix the entire look, and set my sights on something that takes me from day to date, I wore it like it was meant to be worn, threw on some heels, a Charolette blue knit sweater and cinched it all together with a belt. The top of the dress is straight across, so to give it a sweetheart neckline, I tucked some of the fabric together with a safety pin, and voila! Outfit remixed. Katie - 1, Closet - 0. Bam.
