One Dress - Five Ways

I am on a new-clothing-freeze. I am trying to learn to live with less. I have too many clothes. I envy those with more clothes and more options than me. I enjoy remixing items in my closet. I am up for a challenge. I really like this dress!

All of these reasons and more led to a little experiment last week...
purple dress + slip extender + blue blouse + navy cardigan + black tights + shiny bracelets + vintage headscarf + blue beads

 purple dress + slip extender + plaid button up + red cardigan + polka dot tights + Splurge necklace

 purple dress + polka dot blouse + grey cardigan (all secondhand!) + grey tights + headscarf + Anthro bracelet + fave necklace
purple dress + black skirt + yellow polka dot cardigan (all secondhand!) + black tights + shiny bracelets + giant effing ring + fave necklace

Truthfully, I never thought I would get sick of wearing the same dress everyday. And I didn't. Even though I kind of petered out on the last day and just wore the dress with my standard grey cardigan. And going to the symphony that night I was really really excited to put on something completely different! Sequin skirt!!

It feels good to know I have this much flexibility in my closet, and with mostly secondhand pieces! It feels good to know that I don't "need" anything new in my wardrobe because I am fully capable of making the things that I do have work, and work well. That being said, I totally bought two cute, new sweaters this week but only because it's darn freezing in my office!

Which look is your favourite?
Have you ever tried such an experiment?
