One dress - three looks

      I wish I would have more dresses like I am wearing today. It is very cozy, warm and stylish at the same time. Sometimes all I need is just feel relaxed wearing something comfortable, even if I go to a party. There is no belts, tight silhouette, or not stretching the fabric. It takes the form of my body and lets me breath, and at the same time it gives me the options to go up and down depending on situations.

      Today I want to show you three different varieties how to style a sweater dress.

1. City look

Mother's Day present

      Do you have in your closet any items which make you happy every time you put them on? I do! There may not be too many, but today I am wearing one of those pieces from my wardrobe which makes me smile every time I decide to wear it. I love this dress a lot.

      I remember I found this dress on-line at Macy’s and fell in love right away. It was a little bit pricy for me, that’s why I decided to wait until it goes on sale. Coupons unfortunately didn’t work on this brand. I checked it every day for almost a month and it just would not go on sale. I was very upset because I wanted it so bad.

      But one day my husband asked me: “What would you like to get for Mother‘s Day?”  My answer followed immediately: “The Dress!”  The problem was solved. I got a great present from Evgeny, and every time when I put it on I remember this story.

Day in Baltimore

      It was one of those days which, I wish, would never end.  The weather was unbelievably comfortable, Inner Harbor (the place we were visiting) was absolutely gorgeous, and we, my husband and I, were infinitely happy to spend our Saturday together. 

      Today I want to show you another black and white outfit I was wearing in Baltimore. I found it very interesting how the bottom lines of the shirt and the sweater repeated each other, I've never mixed them together before. Also I was surprised that these dressy pants looked pretty good without heels. Usually I wear them for more formal events, never for travel.

      But in the morning, looking at myself in the mirror, I realized that I created a very interesting traveling look - snug and a little bit dressy at the same time - in which I could walk for miles and then have a great dinner at a presentable restaurant. 

      This blog definitely makes me work around my wardrobe!

Great find

      Today I am wearing another piece from my daughter’s box – a dress. At first sight, I didn’t like it at all. I looked at that dress and thought: “How could she even spend money on this piece of junk? It looks cheap and the color reminds me of a uniform…”  But for some reason, I don’t remember why, I put it aside.

      On one of the rainy days I went upstairs and decided to look closer what I have in my closet for the fall season, and I found this dress. I decided to try it on, being sure, that it is not going to work for me in any way. But, as soon as, I put it on, I realized that I kind of like it. I added the leopard printed shoes, a faux fur vest, a little bit of jewelry… And surprisingly, it turned out like a very interesting outfit for me. The dress didn’t look cheap anymore.

      Conversely the color made my eyes brighter, the length made me look taller plus midi now is on trend, and the style of the dress made me feel very trendy.

      My apology, Olga! Great choice, great taste!

Second Chance

      I was going to throw this top away because I couldn’t find any reason to keep it. I haven’t worn it in a couple of years..., I just didn’t like how it looked on me. Every time when I tried to pair this item with any bottoms, there was always something I didn’t like - the proportions, or the length, or a combination of colors. It didn't adorn me.

      Two weeks ago I started changing my wardrobe to the fall and winter seasons and accidentally put the top and a skirt I am wearing today on a couch next to each other, and to my big surprise I liked how it looked together. I tried them on right away and realized that I just created a new look by accident.

       First of all, I extended the season for the skirt which I almost hid until next spring, because I thought it was a summer piece. And, second of all, this top got a chance to live in my closet for a little bit longer. I love when it happens!

Boho-style jeans

     Every time when I put on these jeans I ask myself: "Are they appropriate for my age?" Even though they fit perfectly, sometimes I feel like their style is created for younger girls. But at the same time, I love how they look on me. I wear them with pleasure and feel very confident.

     It has never been my style before, but now I am really into the boho-style items in my closet. I've noticed that I started paying more and more attention to these pieces. I would say that boho-style makes me feel free and stylish at the same time, and I would like to have more pieces like that in my wardrobe.

      What do you think about me wearing these jeans? Should I do it at my age?

Perfect match

      I love when Olga (my daughter) sends me boxes with the clothes she doesn't want anymore, as it means that I can find something for myself in them. Even though we are twenty one years apart in our age and we have totally different styles, I can still find something wearable for myself. Not too often, but sometimes there can be very important pieces for my wardrobe, like this sweater...

Friend's Birthday

      Most of my clothes I can easily convert from an office look to going-out look. Sometimes it is a big sparkly pair of earrings or a necklace, sometimes it is with a dressier pair of pants.

      For example, the whole this outfit,  besides the pants, I wore to work a couple of days ago, and when I was preparing for a restaurant today, all I did was just choose a different pair of pants.

      For a birthday lunch it was enough to look well-dressed and at the same time feel comfortable and appropriate at day time. Even when I stopped by at the Mall to get a present for my friend I didn't feel that I look out of place.
