OMCZ #30 1 item, 3 ways

This OMCZ challenge theme has been chosen by Erin. Here is what she said "Blogging about fashion while living on a budget can be difficult. There is a lot of pressure to keep up with trends and be the first to display a relevant piece. Because it does not suit my finances or lifestyle to constantly purchase new items, I love creating multiple looks around one piece to really stretch the life of my wardrobe. I challenge all of you to create a 'One Item + Three Ways' look to either showcase an item through multiple seasons, or for multiple occasions."

Well what a great challenge. I racked my busy little mind trying to decide what item I was going to choose. Would I go for my favourite skinny jeans or versatile top. I settled on a safe option (yes I know, boring!)  with a black dress I've only really worn a couple of times. I honestly think it's to do with the mesh panel. In the back of my mind, I'm worried there are people judging me and thinking I look a bit mutton dressed as lamb. 

So here's how I wore it...

The dress is from H&M, the belt and flip flops are Primark and the little jacket is vintage. Thought as the dress is very stretchy and comfortable, I would create an easy, dressed down look.


For the second outfit, I tucked the dress into the skirt. Skirt is from AX Curve and boots were from an online store (fake ass Dr Martins). In my haste, I forgot any accessories so looking a bit basic and a bit moody. I wasn't though!


For the last outfit, I added leggings and wore a shirt over the top for a rockabilly look. Leggings are Dorothy Perkins, Shoes are George @Asda  and the vintage bowling shirt was purchased from blogging super star, Betty Pamper.
