When: Friday December 03, 2010

Patterned dress: Estampa (Panama)
Green top: ? (Panama)
Black belt: El Costo (Panama)
White scarf: Present from my brother
Black tights: TJ Maxx
Black booties: Payless Shoe Source
Black Liz Claiborne purse: TJ Maxx

Where: Went to class in the afternoon and then went out with some friends at night. I don't go out much with friends, so it was fun to catch up :)

I just love it when an item has multiple purposes. Take this white scarf for example: it's stylish (purpose 1), and it keeps me nice and warm (purpose 2). It also reminds me of my brother, since he gave it to me, which makes me feel special all day (purpose 3). So it is definitely one of those "really good " items of my closet.

A group of girls complemented me on my pretty "skirt" today, which made me feel super happy of course. They were surprised to know that it is actually a dress!

As I have said several times in the last couple of weeks, I don't have as much clothes as I usually do over here since I sent so much back to Panama. So I have been working and reworking what I got! One great way is to layer a top over a dress so that it instantly turns into a skirt... pretty cool huh?

Do you ever layer tops over dresses so that they look like skirts?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn (at least in pictures because I really wear it all the time) this white scarf:

  1. amazing photo!!Love this look of yours! you look so beautiful! great shoes!love every piece of this outfit!! great styling!

  2. I actually would not have guessed that the skirt is actually a dress. I think the addition of the belt hides that very well. I have done it before and no one was the wiser :)

  3. I like combining my tops over dresses. Love the scarf you have! :)

  4. I'm going to practice this trick to get more use out of my dresses - and to stay warmer! very pretty.

  5. I've never thought to do that before; the belt really does a good job of camouflaging that fact. I love your ankle boots btw :D
