Billowy top revisited

After seeing many of my fellow bloggers take on the 30-for-30 challenge, I've been trying to find creative new ways of mixing items from my wardrobe. Isabel L. of Forever Understated is dynamite at this. Think a scarf + belt around the waist for a kimono-style look, three belts standing in for suspenders and prints-on-prints-on-prints. Her blog inspired me to stretch my imagination.

So, here's my first attempt. Some of you may recognize this top from an earlier post, when I wore it off the shoulder with a sequined black skirt. It turns out the material's thin enough that I was able to tuck it into a form-fitting grey sheath for some insta-sleeves. I like how the floaty fabric of the top balances the strong lines of the dress.

Have YOU remixed anything lately? Share your ideas (and links) below!



 

Could have used some sunglasses...
 

I call this 'plane-wing' hair.
