One Dress, Three Ways: Shopping with Friends



Forever 21 dress, Banana Republic leather jacket & necklace, thrifted boots, American Chic bag

During tough economic times a girl has to multi-task. She has to be clever and resourceful. That is why I decided to do a "How to Wear One Dress, Three Ways" on Sterling Style. The featured piece is this bustier fitted dress from Forever 21 from a few years ago. I thought it would be great to see the lingerie trend worn in different styles. Over the next three days (Friday, Monday and Tuesday) I will wear the dress for three different events.

My fist look for "One Dress, Three Ways" is for a day of shopping with friends. I wanted to try the dress for a day look. You know those days you meet your girlfriends out for some shopping and light lunch preferably with a glass of wine. I wanted to be comfortable, but still feel stylish. I love wearing brown with black. Not a lot of people like the combination, but I think it keeps this outfit from looking too night time.
Stayed tuned for Monday when I wear it to work.

Im starting to really love brown and black together. I was one of those people that would never combine the two but I'm seeing how good they look on others and am really enjoying it. I cant wait to see the other ways you style this dress!

Fantastic and chic outfit. I don't mind brown and black at all nor do I mind black and navy blue. Fashion rules are made to be broken sometimes. I have hair envy! Yours is glorious.

Fabulous lunch lady outfit (I obviously mean lady who lunches not cafeteria staff). I also love brown and black together... I think it breaks up the monotony of black on black and makes it look casual chic.
