One of my favorite bloggers, Jessica Quirk of What I Wore, recently solicited submissions for a Winter Remix Challenge.
Never one to pass up a good challenge, I began composing possible submissions as soon as I read her blog entry. Since I have trouble deciding on anything, I compiled quite a few.
The one I eventually chose to submit is this one: my favorite vintage suede skirt worn first with a vintage silk wrap top, yellow tights, and brown knee-high boots, and then with a blue tee, black cardigan, ice blue tights, and studded black ankle boots.
I also thought about showcasing that second outfit to show how I remixed the same black ribbon-ruffle-trimmed cardigan with a vintage fringy dress, quilted flats and a vintage Moschino belt for my anniversary outfit.
Of course, I thought it might also be fun to show how I wore this Missoni for Target black and white chevron dress over a knit top with a quilted vest and then later layered a sweater over it to make it look like a skirt, adding red tights and Wellies.
And, of course, there's my favorite red baby doll dress that I wore on Thanksgiving with yellow tights, brown boots, and a fall leaf crown I made, and then later on christmas with a fuzzy hooded cardigan, faire isle tights and saddle oxfords.
It was difficult to pick a favorite, but, in the end, I had to go with the suede skirt. It's one of my favorite items and it's so very versatile. I'm always discovering new ways to wear it.
How have you remixed a favorite item recently?
