One Shift, Three Looks: Hiya Houndstooth

Ever since I made this shift about a year ago, it has been among my very favorites. I love wearing it because the colors look great with so many other shades, but it's not at all boring -- it kind of reminds me of Olivia, which is in the shop right now. Check out 3 different looks I put together using this dress.

Look 1: Daytime funtimes

For this look -- which screams BRUNCH to me -- I paired the shift with jeggings (awful word for an amazing garment), my favorite red boots, and a lightweight coat I scored last month at Re-Dress NYC. Sadly, their brick and mortar shop is closing in a few weeks ... but their online shop is expanding and features another amazing garment with a terrible name, teggings.

Look 2: Sparkly night times

This look is a little nutty, but I love it for a night out on the town. Purple tights, a satin jacket, little gray booties, and my workhorse shift. Sparkly accessories take it over the top in the most delightful way. The only thing I'm missing is Rick James -- it's a celebration!

Look 3: Staying warm at work times

It's cold in the office where I work. Hell, it is just generally cold in the world right now and it's only getting colder. I layered my trusty shift with wooly gray tights, a drapey raspberry cardigan, and tall brown boots, another amazing secondhand find from my recent trip to New York. Gotta stay warm and keep moving -- no time to hibernate!
