We believe you don’t have to buy a whole new wardrobe every season to create fun new looks! This week on Jackie and Marilyn, we are taking eight pieces – two tops, two bottoms, two dresses and two outerwear items – and mixing them into eight outfits. Shoes and accessories were limitless.
Melissa here with my fashion remix challenge. Boy, when Brianna brought up this idea I was like “That sounds Awesome!” but when I was faced with doing it I was like “Oh crap why did you agree to this torturrrree!” Haha, no, it’s really not that bad. I am notorious for having…not a lot of basics. My closet consists of ball gowns and sweatpants and not a whole lot in between, so I dreaded finding items that would mix and match well.
Once I did find these items, though, I was pumped and surprised how many possibilities for “new” outfits I actually had.
Outfit #1: Halfway to Easter
Admittedly, this is the most “fun” and least “fall” outfit I got out of the bunch. I like it, but I think it would be better suited for the spring rather than the fall as it’s just a whole lot of pastel. It might be better with a darker/more solid colored cardigan over it!
In the fall I usually switch to more earthy tones of all my favorite colors. I end up wearing a lot of greens and dark blues because I don’t do well with black or gray outfits. I love that this outfit looks relaxed and in the fall field with out looking boring or monotone!
This may be a little too matchy-matchy for some, but when you have some vintage 70s wear you’re bound to have some matching suede. It reminds me a lot of costuming for Christina Applegate’s character in the Anchorman movies, and I’m not mad about that. I also have found my new favorite pair of glasses from Coastal.com after returning for pairs. Success is mine!
