Almost every girl has a few too-big T-shirts in her closet, but instead of just wearing them to bed at night how about refashioning one into a cute tunic dress? I love this fashion DIY because it’s really easy to do and the resulting A-line dress is so easy to just throw on – especially for summer. The other great thing about this DIY is that if you have a tee with a graphic on it, you can even make your dress reversible so that you can wear it with the image in front for days you feel cheeky or wear the plain side in front on days when you’re feeling more serious.

50 Shades of a Grey: The Many Ways I Rocked This Polka Dot Dress to Exhaustion This Summer

6 Item Fashion Diet Day 1, 6 items challenge, clossette, diy fashion, fashion diet, yuka yoneda, grey polka dot dress, polka dot dress, polka dot trend, polka dot clothes, yuka yoneda

It’s the final day of my month of fashion dieting*, and as you can see, I’m jumping for joy! I also have a beard for some reason (see pic 5). Challenging as it might have seemed, the limitation of only being able to wear 6 items of clothing was actually quite liberating. In fact, I re-counted today and realized I didn’t even don my 6th garment at all, mostly due to the fact that I wore my handy dandy polka dress to almost every function fathomable. From birthdays to weddings to bridal showers, the dress acted as my sidekick for the month and showcased once again that fashion is all about fun and function, not quantity.

* In case you don’t yet know the backstory of what the 6 Items Fashion Diet is and why I’m doing it, click here to get the whole scoop.

Day 31 Outfit:

– Grey (ok, I guess it’s really more like a taupe) polka dot dress: H&M
– Ivory purse: Prada
– Avarcas slip-on sandals: Riudavets (check out the always knowledgeable Emma Grady’s article about this new, ethically-made fashion sensation, which has actually been a staple in Menorcan wardrobes for years, here)

It may sound daunting, but I really encourage you to try out the 6 Items Style Challenge yourself. We live in a society that’s so used to fast fashion, that simply being photographed in the same dress at two different weddings results in an “OMG, I die” moment – but why? What is so terrible? I hope that everyone who steps outside of this bizarre mindset for even a month by taking the challenge can come to a place where they’re able to be more resourceful and creative with a more pared down, quality wardrobe. And after you’ve tried it, please come back and comment on how you felt after – I feel confident that it’ll inspire a positive change in you. Plus, you just have a lot more time in your life when you don’t have to decide what to wear everyday. : /

Reversible Baby Blue Candystriper Dress

thrift shop, vintage clothes, vintage clothing,  vintage fashion, yukas closet, doucette duvall, spring dress, dress to wear to wedding

I adore Doucette Duvall’s dresses made from vintage fabrics rescued from the garment district and this one is no exception. It’s flattering and fitted but still breezy. Perfect for an outdoor spring wedding! The dress is not supposed to be reversible but it’s fully lined with a gorgeous paisley polka dot print that I actually like better than the stripey side so I’ve worn it before on that side as well.

Originally $295

Size 6 (M)

Condition: Very Good

Baby blue and white stripes lined with a polka dot paisley. 100% polyester. Slight tear near bottom of zipper (very easily repairable) which is why I’m offering it for a mere pittance compared to what I bought it for!

Step 1. Steal your boyfriend’s shirt. I’m just kidding. Don’t steal. But if you notice that your boyfriend (or husband, brother, friend, dad, guy on the couch) has an old t shirt that they hardly wear anymore, they should be fine with you taking it as long as you ask nicely. And this project will work just as well with any oversized t shirt you already have in your own closet too. There are only a few steps and when you’re done, you’ll have a cute tank top just in time for summer. Read on for the full instructions!

This silky black Caroline Hedaya dress looks darling from the front but it’s daring and sheer in the back. I purchased this dress for $245 but it’s too small for me now (darn you, doughnuts!) so my (weight) gain is your gain!

The dress measures 17″ across the bust, 13.5″ across the waist and is flared at the bottom. It’s got some signs of wear (seams are a little stretched from me trying to squeeze into it – see pic below), but overall it looks amazing and lovely. Perfect with a string of pearls!
