From Day to Night

Greetings Fashion Friends,

For today's segment, I decided to transform 3 different garments from day time looks.....to night time ensembles. I started this segment to encourage my mind to be more creative with what I own. And more importantly, this segment also reminds me that if the items in my wardrobe aren't versatile...I may need to reevaluate its utilization or donate the item to charity. It's been working out pretty well ;-)


1.) For the first transformation, I decided to focus on the faux fur vest.

Day......


From Day to Night - Fur Vest: Part I


Thermal top, $13
Fake fur vest, $52
Current/Elliott distressed jeans, £75
Wanted Shoes round toe shoes, $70
Jeffrey Campbell back pack bag, $308
Jill Platner flat earrings, $190
Eugenia Kim face hat, $365


A casual day time look could encompass distressed denim, military-inspired boots, and minimal accessories. Who knew JC was in the fab backpack business??? Sign me up ;-)

Or Night......
From Day to Night - Fur Vest: Part II


Dolce Gabbana sleeveless dress, $819
Fake fur vest, $52
Christian louboutin boots, $1,395
Python clutch, $895
Citrine By The Stones 18k jewelry, $175
JCPenney 14k earrings, $55
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture, $30



I think layering the vest over a fitted mini and knee high (or over the knee) boots will work beautifully for a night out on the town. Contrast the black and white color scheme with gold accessories. BTW, that animal print dress is FIYAH!!!Talk about a stylish and versatile piece! The above two sets reflect one of the main reasons I want a fur vest. They are just so stylish in any look you put together.



2.) Next, the item I chose to highlight is the below swing dress.

Day..........
From Day to Night - Swing Dress: Part I


May rust dress, $179
H&M leather flat shoes, £25
Salvatore ferragamo bag, $850
Dorothy Perkins glitter jewelry, £10
Hive Honey coin jewelry, $20
COLLECTION XIIX fedora hat, $38


Pairing oxfords with a dress always makes me feel chic, yet comfortable. The fedora is a nice, stylish addition and a fab way to add a pop of color!

Or Night......
From Day to Night - Swing Dress: Part II


May rust dress, $179
Nicholas Kirkwood stiletto heels, $795
Matthew Williamson clutch handbag, £995
Antica Murrina long earrings, $134
Face watch, $405



Now taking this cute little dress to the next level requires a serious, ankle breaking high heel, luxe jewelry, and poise. Go with a bold colored heel such as the one above to really transform your garment.

3.) Last, I chose to style the ever popular striped tee.

Day......


From Day to Night - Striped Tee: Part I


DAY Birger et Mikkelsen scoop neck top, $90
Genetic Denim flared jeans, $192
Wet Seal flat heels, $8.99
A N A crossbody handbag, $25
Iosselliani gold plated jewelry, $409



For an afternoon of running errands, I can really rock this classic item with bell bottoms, flats, and the trendy cross body bag. It's a very chic, fuss-free look.


Or Night......
From Day to Night - Striped Tee: Part II


DAY Birger et Mikkelsen scoop neck top, $90
Antonio Berardi black tuxedo jacket, £1,199
Sara Berman leather skirt, $135
Giuseppe zanotti shoes, $1,095
Dorothy Perkins patent leather handbag, £18
Mixit pear necklace, $25



To elevate this tee for a night time affair, rock it with a leather mini, power blazer, and sexy ankle strap pumps. Adding color will work well also, but you can never go wrong with a classic black and white palette ;-)




So what do you all think of these transitioning styles?



Au revoir!
