Today's Everyday Fashion: Gossip Girl x 3

Click to view larger



























One Gossip Girl look, three ways to interpret it. I am a huge fan of this green-yellow-polka dots combination, and I also like the look of dark tights (mine are navy) with a yellow pump. I felt so inspired that I decided to have a little fun in my closet! What I love about the results is that it's not just three different looks, but it's also showing you how to get more versatility out of a dress. Not only can you wear a cardigan over it, but you can also put a long sleeve blouse under it, or a blouse over it to wear and as a skirt. Which way would you wear it?

  5. You are the queen of taking a look and interpreting it for us in the real world (with real world budgets).  While I'm not sure I could do the black tights with yellow shoes, especially in an office environment, I love the 3rd look wih the blouse belted over the green dress.

  8. I like the look on the right!  The blouse over the dress with the belt has the most streamlined silhouette!

  15. I love all 3 looks you put together, but I probably wear dark shoes because I'm not that adventurous ;)

  16. All of your variations loom great!! My favorite is the "skirt" option! I definitely have to try that.

  17. Thanks so much Leigh! ps. Tights are navy! (You can tell if you look closely.) I personally think black would be too much of a contrast.

  18. Thanks so much Rachel! :-)

  19. Are you referring to the Target dress in my post, or a different one?

  20. LOVE the look with the shirt over the dress and belt on top. I mean, I like them all, but I love that one!

  21. You are so great at mixing up outfits! I need to work on using dresses for this purpose as well! I absolutely love that Blair inspiration look and to be honest, without it, I wouldn't have thought bright shoes with tights could look so cute! Love your first and third looks especially!

  22. love the heels and the green/yellow, but I wouldn't wear the belt with #1 or #2 - your figure doesn't need it!

  23. The third look is def my favorite. Loving your style posts lately!

  29. I particularly love outfit #3!!    As in your May 20, 2011, blogpost, "6 Clothing Items You Can Repurpose Now"............ http://www.jseverydayfashion.com/2011/05/6-clothing-items-you-can-repurpose-now.html............ where you (so *skillfully*!!) wrote two segments, "Wear a dress as a shirt";  and "Wear a dress as a skirt," I see that the two dresses you wore there as a SKIRT were also solid colors, (i.e., black and pale pink), as is your emerald dress, Above.   

    I personally wonder if, say, using a floral-PRINT sundress as a skirt, with a SOLID-color shirt (over it) might also work?    I have a low-cut, flowy-skirted, jersey-knit cotton sundress in a beautiful, deep-*rainbow*-colored, "Monet-like" (IMPRESSIONISTIC) print.    The "greenery" background, (for all the deep-rainbow floral colors), is emerald green and also deep olive green;  so----(just as an experiment)----I might try to find a deep olive green top, of some sort;  and try it *over* the sundress;  then (IF that works!!), I'll work on some type of accessories, too, to wear now, or early this Spring.
