I recall the last time I wore this dress on the blog, I struggled with a title, too.

That really stinks.  It implies that I'm uninspired in some way, and that definitely isn't the case.  I love this dress, I love blue, and I love the seller (Vic and Lily) who sold me this dress. 

Nevertheless, I remain uninspired for post titles about this dress.  What I want to discuss, however, is how does one go about styling something again?  Recognizing that I've worn this dress on the blog before, how was I going to make it look different?  I'm not entirely convinced I have the answer.

And therein lies the problem.  I get asked a lot about how big my closet is.  And, I have confessed to having an Etsy addiction.  The cost factor of the clothes I like to buy means that I don't necessarily break the bank to wear these vintage gems.  I've never subscribed to the idea that looking fashionable has to cost lots of money.  I've always tried to be resourceful.  Thrifty.  But am I?

I'm not sure.

Is it enough to just wear my hair differently? Change the shoes and accessories?  Interestingly, I came across a post from Steffy's Pros and Cons in which she admitted to staying away from dresses for the simple reason that they are hard to change up.  Styling dresses requires less creativity because you only have to think about the bag and shoes.   But, I'm finding quite the opposite to be true.  Especially with a dress like this simple blue one.  The possibilities are endless.  

I just have to figure out what they are. Any styling suggestions?

when it's hot out i completely agree w/ her, there's no way to really remix it other than accessories since the last thing you want do is add more layers, even a light vest when it's 115 in Phoenix in the summer. but in fall/winter the remixing possibilities are endless, which my fellow swappers at Flock Together always prove to me when i'm out of ideas.
