The piece that I am remixing is this black skirt. Throughout my entry, I am wearing it as a skirt, a top, and a bathing suit coverup. I bought it at T.J. Maxx a while back for around $15.
Outfit 1 (Pictures 1 & 2)— In these photos, I am wearing the skirt as a strapless top. The ruffles and lace on the black skirt make it look really dressy and fancy. So, I thought I would contrast that with choice of beat-up denim shorts. I find that, in a lot of my outfits, I don’t usually have on really colorful clothing. Most of the color is provided by my accessories. My shorts used to be a pair of men’s jeans. I bought them at Goodwill, and cut-off and distressed them. My bracelet and headband are from Forever 21, and my necklace is vintage (I found it in my dress-up box from when I was little!) And my booties are from a random boutique in New York City. I got them at a great discount. And finally, I gave the top/skirt a feminine shape with a studded belt from Target.
Outfit 2 (Pictures 3 & 4)— I am wearing the skirt as it was meant to be worn. Mixing prints is one of my favorite things to do in my outfits. I think it gives any outfit a fun and youthful approach. My tee shirt is vintage from my mom’s closet, and my cardigan is from the Thakoon for Target Collection. I love the coordination of the tie-dye and the stripes. I pulled together the look with a vintage, patent leather belt. My necklace is Subversive for Target. As you can probably tell, I find a lot of great things in the Target GO designer collections. My studded cuff is from my Halloween costume from last year— I was a goth person. And once again, my hair flowers are from Forever 21.
Outfit 3 (Picture 5)— This skirt works great as a bathing suit cover-up! My swimsuit is Kenneth Cole Reaction. I wore my trusty gladiator sandals, and my pink flower headband.
