Real implementation from actual fashion magazine idea!

What I Wore to Work Today: Thursday, June 9, 2011
Dress (as blouse): Goodwill, refashioned
Skirt: $1 Goodwill, refashioned
Belt: Xi, came with a blouse
Shoes:  Target

I’m a subscriber to Lucky, the magazine about shopping and style.  It’s less that I like shopping, style, or fashion and more that I like magazines, and this one is easy and cheap (just like me, amirite?).  One regular feature has four different women wearing the same piece in different ways, like last month’s about a leopard-print blouse.  Usually I think the outfits are silly and way too layered and not at all something I would ever wear.  I’ve never gotten into the layering thing, partly because it’s a bazillion degrees here half the year and my own skin is more layers than necessary, and partly because I feel fat and shapeless and stuffed with a tank top under a shirt so what would happen with a blouse and cardigan and jacket over that??

This month, though, the first woman was wearing the button-front silk tunic dress thing underneath a skirt suit with some “strategic pinning” so it just looked like a nice blouse tucked into the skirt (not available online yet).  Huh, I said, I wonder if my blue polyestery dress could do that…  Lo!  Indeed it could!  And I didn’t do any pinning at all, the dress was shorter than the skirt.  What other new ways can I remix my wardrobe??
