And Then I Coated It!

Outfit 10: Wrap dress worn as coat: Thrifted Simply Vera, Jeggings: Charlotte Russe, Turtle Neck: Gifted, Wedges: Steve Madden ($20!)

 I'd just like to coin a phrase right now because I may have just discovered the coolest thing ever, it shall henceforth be known as "coating it". Out of curiosity, I took my Simply Vera wrap dress...and used it as a coat, don't worry I gave my dress a very thorough talk about all of the changes it would be going through and that identity problems would be completely normal and then...I coated the heck out of that dress. What do you guys think, can my wrap dress pass as a jacket? I'm kind of loving it. Me and my formerly known as dress have had to do some intense identity therapy but I think she'll make it through. And that my friends, is a wrap (literally though it is).

  1. Oh man, I'm in love with your blog. I've been finding a lot of fashion blogs lately and I'm afraid I'm turning into an envying, worldly woman. However, that isn't stopping me from following you. Nice to meet you :)

  13. Your "formally known as a dress" can TOTALLY pass as a coat...and a very cute coat at that!

  19. I'm a little nervous to "coat" it.
    I also think taking pictures is going to far, but I personally didn't mind that one time because of the situation. Just a side note. :) Thanks for commenting.

  31. Really beautiful coat and you thought of such an awesome way of remixing it! I find that wrap dresses (while super flattering) tend to be one note, so figuring out new ways to wear them is fantastic!
