LA CATRINA de LA Moda: triple

Aug 31, 2010


[During the month of August I managed to wear this floral maxi dress three times,  every time I threw it on I wanted  to make sure a gave it a different approach than the previous time I had worn it.]

Simple and Easy
it can't get easier than flat lace up sandals,
and silver necklaces
MACY's dress, ALDO bag, DV by DOLCE VITA sandals

Switch it Up
I wanted this outfit to look as if I was wearing separates
from far away, so I threw on my lace tee and tied it in a knot

MACY'S dress, ALDO bag, F21 top + cross, JC snick wedge, E-BAY sunnies

Dressy, but not too Much
I wore this outfit to a wedding, for some reason I always
have such a hard time when trying to figure out what to
wear to weddings. I hate that wedding outfits are expected to be
 safe, appropriate, and not over the top.  Well, I thought
my print mixing obsession would be the perfect tool to add
a little "spunk" to a wedding outfit.  There has to
be no better occasion than a wedding to wear leopard, snake,
and floral print all at the same time ;)

VINTAGE clutch + belt, COOKIE LEE necklace

[hope you guys liked my first ever "triple" outfit post ;)]

What a versatile piece! Thanks for sharing this triple post lady!! You nailed it everytime. You really have a gift for seeing the potential in pieces and are willing to try something different and bold each time and that's why I love your style!!
I personally like the second, Switch It Up, the best! The lace and snicks give it the perfect ladylike boho feel!! :)

I love the way you made this dress look completely different each time you wore it! That black top over it looks fabulous. And the chain you're wearing in the last look is outstanding. I love the way you follow your own rules when it comes to fashion. Very admirable. :)
