Lookbook: One Outfit 3 Ways

Lookbook: One Outfit, 3 Ways

I went to Forever 21 looking for a specific dress from the Rory Beca designer collaboration line. I didn't see it so I asked an employee who told me that they did not carry the line at that particular store. I didn't want the whole trip to be a wash, so I found a few things that I needed to add to my wardrobe, like these harem pants and this flowy dress/top.

Look 1: Wearing the dress as a top -- and pairing it with black harem pants and booties. I have gray harem pants, but these black ones will be a bit more universal.

The necklace and bracelet are DIY jewelry I made and showcased in an inspiring style post a while back, featuring beads and safety pins.

Look 3: Paired with a vintage mink coat -- this coat was given to me from my grandmother-in-law recently. It's starting to warm up so I won't get much use out of it right now, but it will be a staple later in the year for sure.
