Outfit Chronicles: One Piece - Three Ways PT 2

Here is Part One if you haven't checked it out. The rundown is basically this:

Alex of AVE Styles + Me = A fashion series to make styling a little more comprehensible
Challenge: Take 1 article of clothing and make 3 different looks with it.

While Alex is typically behind-the-scenes, helping couples, models, and other clientele find items that suit them best -- she brought the party in FRONT of the camera this time. And I was ready :)

Alex's one piece: Striped Long Sleeve Top

Isn't it amazing how a striped top can be elevated to "French Prep" by pairing it with a blazer and riding boots? I mean, it makes sense but it's such a different feel from the Bold Artist!

I love this last look! I've seen Alex sport long sleeves under dresses before and it's something I really want to try. In fact, as I was leaving Alex told me to try putting the cardigan I was sporting in yesterday's post under the printed dress I was wearing.

A huge thanks to Alex for helping me carry out this idea to make the world of fashion easier to digest. Or simply to provide y'all with some inspiration as you stand in front of your closet! :) Check out Alex's post for an insight on her styling process for these outfits.

We have more tutorials planned for the future! Hope you've enjoyed the first and are looking forward to more! Feel free to send in any requests or just share your thoughts ;)

Outfit Chronicles: One Piece - Three Ways

Ever have a how the heck did they even come up with that outfit?! moment?

Alex from AVE Styles and I are working together to bring you a set of series where fashion and style are a lot more accessible. Where you can start thinking about what you already have in your closet rather than the brands you don't own. Kind of like shopping for free. How ridiculous is that?

First challenge: One piece of clothing styled in three ways. Three completely different looks.

I showed up to Alex's place with a duffel bag full of clothes. I would consider myself a relatively stylish girl. BUT. I have NEVER put any of these outfits together that Alex whipped up. After the fastest camera/photography tutorial ever, Alex became the photographer and together we created these fashion profiles. Consider the notes like recipes -- you can mimic or reinterpret it to whatever taste you like.

My one piece: Coral Blazer

Add some sparkle and now it's a night time outfit. Alex said this outfit reminded her most of me. Not gonna lie, definitely a favorite...

And last -- this one really surprised me. I would have never thought to pair a cardigan under a blazer.

Cra-zy. Felt like I went shopping. The wonders of working with a stylist. Lucky for us, Alex is raining down some of that styling wisdom on us :) Tomorrow it will be her turn to be in front of the camera... yeeeep!

Make sure to check out her blog for even more details on the thoughts behind the styling. Hope you're looking forward to these series! Requests are welcomed ;)
