AmberLucas 's Thoughts:

Learning to remix ones wardrobe is not only fun, but it also teaches us to become more creative with what we already have. Thinking outside of the box often pushes our creativity in the best of ways.

The item that I have chosen to “remix” today is a my beautiful flirty blue and white top that I bought in Paris a few years back. The delicate crocheted shoulders and cinched in waist complement my style perfectly!

Outfit 1: The artist Degas was my inspiration for this. I made this skirt myself – my 2nd sewing project ever. The gold belt is from my mother; two lions raised up touching front paws. The Pierre Hardy for Gap wedges add to the fun “flouncy-ness” of the outfit with their over-sized bows and also elongate the leg. Hair done up in a high messy bun adds to the theme of the outfit while still being contemporary (by being a bit loose and messy)

Outfit 2: Here I paired the top with a pair of wide legged trouser jeans by Joe jeans. This blue on blue outfit creates a look of being “together” while still kept contemporary with quirky jewelry additions. The earrings I am wearing are large 2 inch gold cicadas and the bracelet is made up of gold bees. The blue blazer (from Forever 21) lends a nice shape to the outfit. The bag (from Anthropologie) and shoes (INC) lend some color, while the jewelry adds some fun interest.

Outfit 3: For my third outfit I dressed up a black American Apparel tube dress by using my shirt as a layering piece. I cinched in the waist with a skinny black belt, and kept things casual with a black pair of flats. Also, the “necklace” I am wearing is a belt! My blue clutch is a YSL bag, however it was originally a GWP makeup case. I think it looks better as a day clutch, don’t you?

Here are some tips for remixing your outfits:

*Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box! Sometimes a belt doesn’t always have to be worn as such. Wear it as a necklace or a bracelet! Turn a makeup bag into a purse or clutch.

Cinching in your waist is a great way to create shape; you can change the entire feel of a top or a dress by doing this.

*When trying to remix an item of yours, think of a few things that make that item a favorite of yours. Is it the color? The shape? Choose one, and then go from there. For example: If you love the color, create the outfit using similar colors and add a few highlights for interest.

*Always have a quirky item on hand! Be it animal belts, or insect jewelry, make sure that there is always an element of yourself!

Great styling - looks like you had fun! My favourite look's the first one. And I ALWAYS use belts as necklaces! The chain ones are sometime's a bit heavy on my neck - but I LOVE how they look!
