How Would You Wear This?

Happy Wednesday ladies. The winner of the $250 Nordstrom Gift Card giveaway is Kathy Johnson! Congratulations Kathy… we will email you your gift card.


Now onto the mannequin and how you would style it. Grab another cup of your favorite coffee or tea and let’s have some fun with fashion. I spotted this mannequin wearing a dress I thought had potential… with some adjustments. Here she is…how would you style this dress?

My opportunity to style this dress was severely limited because most of the store was roped off for the Nsale.

The first thing I did was turn the dress around backward because my broad shoulders are more flattered by a V-neck than a wide scoop. There are no side pockets so a quick snip would remove the label at the neck and no one would be the wiser. I prefer to cover my upper arms most days so I tried this cotton-blend open-front knit blazer in the petite medium. Then I tried this cotton, linen blend cardigan with the dress backward and then forwards.

How would you accessorize this outfit?

Would you belt it?

How about shoes and jewelry?

Then I spotted this version with sleeves and immediately ordered it 🙂

Here are some midweek sales-

    I would wear a chunky heeled white sandal to elevate my height with that longer skirt. Then add a short structured jacket in white denim over it. I would not wear a jersey dress usually as it would cling to all my bulges, so I would have to add height and some structure to offset that.

    I would wear flat sandals and a wide brimmed straw hat with this dress. I might add a colorful scarf at the waist. No sweater or jacket needed here in Florida.

    In a pinch I might wear it. Color wouldn’t be the best choice for my skin tone. First change at 5’4 would Be to shorten a bit. I like the idea of flipping v-neck to front. I’d also add a short white denim jacket. Possibly a turquoise statement necklace or earrings. Nude sandals, flat or low heeled.

      I love the idea of a white denim jacket
