Faux Part Deux

Last week’s work dress, is this week’s play dress. I gave this faux wrap dress a quick make-under with
existing pieces from my closet. This is what I call getting more bang for my buck; two for one deal; stretching the dollar; reducing cost per wear. Ya catch my drift? In an effort to edit my wardrobe and going for more versatility, it’s pieces like this that are making their way into my closet.

But it’s the existing staples in my closet that rounded out this outfit. My denim vest was a purchase made last summer and is the best go-to when I need to add a little edge to an outfit. Perfect for layering over maxi’s, rompers and of course, dresses. And how about these slip-on sneaks? Chic and sporty without compromising comfort.

What’s your go-to accent piece when you want to give your outfit a make-under?

Outfit Details:

Denim Vest: Loft (old). If you are in need of a denim vest, this Target one is worth a perusal, $29.99.

Custom Morse Code Necklace: c/o uncommongoods. Love this necklace – a discreet way to proudly wear my hubby’s name.

Faux Wrap Dress: Banana Republic, $88. Store card holders save an extra 40% off thru 8/30 online.

Wood Watch: c/o Jord (Fieldcrest Series in zebrawood & maple)

Mini Pashli: 3.1Phillip Lim via Nordstrom half yearly sale, $509.98 (originally $850). Yes, even though it was on sale, this may not be so budget friendly. But don’t fret, Forever21 has a great dupe in black, tan and wine for $24.90.

Slip-On Sneakers: c/o M.Gemi. No longer available BUT how about these Keds, $65?
