OUTFIT REDO: SHOULDER PADS AND TWISTED BODY PEARL NECKLACE

Photobucket

Do you feel bad about wearing a dress that you have already worn before? Yeah me too. But its a darn shame that a dress that you feel good in has to sit in the closet because half of your friends have already seen it. So what do you do? Mix it up. You may remember seeing this dress from my birthday post, it was my bday dress.

After standing in front of the mirror for five minutes, I turned to my trusty accessories and started playing.

Who doesn't LOVE pearls, but instead of just wrapping it around my neck and calling it a day I decided to wrap it around my body. Yes it was an extra long necklace, so with a twist around the neck and a loop and knot at the waist it took on a life of its own.

Already knowing that royal blue is a perfect match to my bright yellow, I pulled out my shoulder-padded blazer. I have to tell you that this blazer takes me from day to night in a stylish flash. I am in love with it, shoulder pads and all.

I rounded out the outfit with some high studded brown shoes(so high that I was practically the same height as @choosespun .. seriously), my moxsie potluck paris ring and a gold clutch.

I believe I successfully took my favorite yellow dress and switched up the look from birthday to a dinner out with the fashion twitterati. What do you think?

That's great! Such a clever idea with wrapping the beads like that.

I repeat outfits a lot, but I try and make sure I'm with different groups of people!
