Style Update: Repurposing a coat as a dress

It seems, these days, I’m only drawn to items of clothing that can function as a 2 for 1 sort of scenario. Take this coat, as an example. Yes, that’s a coat. Only when I saw it on the model online, I immediately saw the potential of this coat to be the perfect dress. Don’t get me wrong, it was still going to serve as a coat, and perfect for layering, come pre-fall. But, I wanted to give it a purpose now. And so, a dress was born.

I suppose this is all just to say that things aren’t always what they seem with pieces of clothing. Sometimes a little imagination goes a long way, and also insures you’ll never step out wearing an outfit that’s the same as the next person on the street. What we’re shown in catalogues and online is just something that’s the retailer’s vision. Your own vision, with the garments you choose to purchase, could be something entirely different. It’s all about being open to the possibilities. And this coat, well, it has potential! 

What I’m Wearing:

Coat (worn as dress), Gold Palm Earrings (sorry, now sold out from H&M), Gold Shoes
