Any advice?

I love this dress so much.

We were in Cincinnati a couple of years ago visiting family, and my mother-in-law and I decided to make a trip to the Kenwood Mall while we were up there. At Banana Republic, on the clearance rack, this poor dress was all by itself, looking sad and lonely and seriously marked down.

And, even though this never, ever, EVER happens...the dress was in my size. Score!

The only problem is, even though I've had this dress forever, I've never really tried to remix it, because I'm not really sure where I'd start. The top is a little blousy, the sash is attached at the sides, the collar is slightly floppy. I've thrown the odd cardigan over the dress, but that's about as far as my creativity has taken me.

So, that's where I'm at...any advice on how I can get more use out of this item?

Dress: Banana Republic
Shoes: Jessica Simpson


  1. That dress is LOVELY!!!!!! I think the dress is so cute that you don't really need to do too much with it. You could add a pop of color with shoes and jewlery. Maybe even a small colorful belt?

  2. I also think the dress is gorgeous! I think it'd be pretty with red accessories. Maybe you could remove the sash and wear a red belt and jewelry?

  3. First thing that came to mind was a blazer, one of any color, but anything not black or white would add loads of visual interest. Another is bright jewelry/belt/shoes (or maybe all 3!). Have fun playing with this gorgeous shirtdress!

  4. I would try a black blazer, a black sweater, OR tucking it in to a pair of pants :) This dress is really pretty; I hope you find a way to wear it!


Leave a comment, if you'd like...I'd love to hear from you!
