I am teaming up with the stunning Amy of lowcarbhighstyle for her “January 1 item, 5 ways” post. I read Amy’s December post featuring her faux fur vest worn 5 ways (actually, 6) and asked if I could join her this month. She’s so kind; she readily agreed.
You’ve seen my black sheath dress quite a bit on the blog. I bought it at Bon Marché thrift shop in Sonoma back in November for $5.00, then had it altered for another $20.00. For only $25.00, I’ve been able to wear this dress five times, five different ways.
The first time I wore the dress was to my husband’s fire department holiday party in December.
|I’m trying to post photos I haven’t used before.
Pardon the absence of my feet in the photo.
I wore it again New Year’s Eve.
Then I tried a work look with a belt and a white button-down (thrifted, $3.99) underneath.
And just the other day, I added a touch of color and layered it with a cobalt blue H & M shirt and textured stockings.
Finally, in an effort to wear my one and only Hermès scarf more often, I tied the scarf around my neck and wore an ancient leopard jacket I bought in 1996.
