Wear It Another Way

If you've been following me for a while (or have been peeking through my archives), you may more than likely have passed by this All Saints fave of my mine...

This amazing Summer maxi dress has been my go to comfort/elegant/glam wear for almost two years.  I have worn it in the Winter here and here.  I have worn it as a skirt.  Aaaaand

now I have worn it as a tube dress.
 (incase you were curious, this is how it was meant to be worn.)

Yes, this dress I've worn many ways on many days.  I love it and that's why it's in my Tiny Closet - but, in a way I had planned this all along.  
When something catches my eye for good reason (perhaps the style, tailoring, etc), I always try to imagine it worn as many ways as possible.  

If I can't see it any other way than how it looks on the hanger, 
I usually don't go for it.

Why??  Because a girl likes options.  It's one of the many reasons why women tend to have closets full of unworn/forgotten clothing in the first place.  Minds change, moods fluctuate, styles evolve...  

In the past when I've bought items  that I couldn't see more creatively than "as is", they've grown terribly dull to me over time to the point of disgust.  That's no good!

I want my clothes to grow with me.  And they can.  
They just have to be adaptable!  

Taking a drive over to Long Beach's gorgeous dog beach, my old man of a dog reunited with the blissful sea waves.  And I reunited with my bliss :)

Hope you're enjoying your weekend!
