An Ode to Remixing

Can we just go ahead and credit Kendi with the term "remixing"? Just brilliant. My sister bought me this blouse when she was in Italy at the beginning of summer. I never realized just how versatile it was until I decided I wanted to do this post. This top was an easy choice. Here, I'm showcasing said versatility with outfits perfect for day, night and the weekend!

My lovely and talented friend, Amber, of ADG Photography took my photos for this shoot while she was in town a while back and I absolutely love how they turned out. It was lots of fun having a photographer for a day and I'm so happy I was able to take advantage of her skills :) She's going to photograph Steve and I for our engagement photos and I can't wait!

I love the way you paired it with the strapless dress. It is the most far out of my comfort zone but, totally my favorite look!

You look amazing!! I especially like the last outfit, that dress is hot!

It really IS a very versatile shirt! I was going to say how I love that it's so long-- you never can find long dress shirts like that anymore (and I'm not talking about tunics!) but then the third outfit jumped right out at me! It's AWESOME!

Your friend did a wonderful job with the photos! It's amazing how one great piece can be so versatile! My berry colored pencil skirt has been remixed so many times!

Rin said...

Wow, this top IS super versatile. Who would have thought. I like how you illustrated it through these pictures. The style is definitely you but also different in each set of photos. I love all three outfits. The first two outfits are definitely outfits I would wear, so I gravitate towards those. But the last one is so ingenious and different, that it might be my absolute favorite of the three. Please do more posts like this.

I'm utterly in love with the third look--I'd wear something like that in a heartbeat, honestly. That shirt does seem to be totally versatile! Never let it go. (:
