Be yourself and do it your self

Summer clothes in winter

Don’t give in to the commerce of fashion. Don’t  give in to the temptation of fast fashion by believing that you need a different set of  every season. Inspite of being located at a lower latitude,Michigan winters (42°N) are definitely severe compared to other places I have inhabited before such as Paris (48°N), Metz (49°N). However, I did not go on a rampage and buy winter paraphernalia because I love to reuse and restyle clothes across various seasons because it gives me immense creative satisfaction. An example is this summer dress which I wore on repeat in summer.print-maxi-dress-style

However, I did not want to stop wearing it in fall and winter too so this is how I wore it for colder temperatures. I have used my very old off-shoulder top on top of my maxi-dress. I added in a belt for defining the silhouette and a pair of tall boots to add height.

I have also worn it with a pull on sweater on top of the dress. Most people though I was wearing a skirt and complimented me on the skirt. Either way I am proud of the fact that I can create deceptive fashion like that. Do you like using your clothing pieces creatively? Let me know in the comments below
