outfit: two-toned dress

Jul 19, 2013


dress Wilfred (Aritzia)
shirt (Forever 21)
fringed purse Zara
moccasins Manitobah Mukluks

Sometimes things look better when they're not worn as intended, like this button up shirt. Technically it's a blouse with buttons down the back but it's really ill-fitting and looks weird, it looks way better worn backwards as a cardigan. At least I think so!

  1. Wow! I love that idea and would never have guessed the blouse was backwards. Way to think outside the box!

  4. um, how much do i love your pairing of this darling dress with the fringed shoes + bag?! a ton and a half is the answer of course!!! i've been replacing an unbuttoned blouse instead of a cardy lately. it's especially awesome for summer, much cooler right? great idea! ♥
