As I continue to roll out the new blog theme of dressing stylish on a budget, I figured a monthly theme of versatility would be more than fitting. As a new feature on the blog each month I will show you how to wear 1 item 3 ways. This will give you outfit inspiration, expand your wardrobe choices and help you continue to mix and match your favorite wardrobe items more than ever before.
For this month’s 1 item 3 ways I collaborated with one of my favorite chic budget friendly stores Tobi and wore a purple crushed velvet dressed. My goal was to find ways to wear this dress that showed how drastic you can take one item of clothing.
With the help of other clothes that came right out of my closet I took this dress from party, to semi casual to business. I always encourage you to think outside the box when you buy an item of clothing because your wardrobe shouldn’t be one dimensional. Here's the 3 ways I wore this dress:
Look 1- I turned my velvet Tobi dress into a front tie shirt & paired it with jeans & heels.

Look 2- I paired my velvet Tobi dress with red over the knee boots.

Look 3- I wore my velvet Tobi dress as a shirt with a suit!!

These three looks just show how many ways you can wear one item. I'm an expert at finding new ways to wear one item so I'm looking forward to this new monthly feature. Remember when trying to find new ways to wear clothing make sure you think outside the box & get inspiration from magazines, blogs and even social media.
A few of the questions I think of before I purchase clothes is: How many ways can I wear this? How many seasons can I wear this in? & Will this compliment the clothes I already have at home? These 3 questions help me to shop for clothes that I can mix and match easily with items I already own which in the long run saves me lots of cash.
With my Tobi collaboration I also got to style two more pieces show below.
This cute halter sweater is available HERE.
And here's more velvet (because I'm obsessed with this trend!) This dress is available HERE.
