Instead of leaving this little number in my closet just waiting to be worn, I dusted it off and attempted to dress it down for a meeting I had with some important folks in the entertainment business. I immediately called my friend A.Ro, who I always turn to for her expert fashion advice. She always gives me a hard time about my choices, so I wanted to make her proud!
She was doing the best she could with offering me advice for dressing down a dressy dress, but she was at work preparing for a big meeting (How dare she not be fully committed to my crisis, right? Ha.)… so I felt abandoned in my pursuit.
Ultimately I asked myself, “What would A.Ro do?” and I threw on a white Tommy Hilfiger jean jacket, a red Chan Lu scarf, my grey suede Rag & Bone booties with a heel, and a cute purse to dress down my dressy dress. You can see the final look (below right).

I hope this inspires you to reinvent your style with items you already own. Instead of taking a shopping trip next time you need something, why not wear a piece in a new way. There’s no one way to do something. Having an open mind and a little patience (in life and in fashion) will leave you with a little more money in your bank account and less clutter in your closet.
Add a scarf. Grab a denim jacket. Maybe a statement necklace and a pop of color… the possibilities are endless! Now go out there and have some fun with it!
