So, I gotta know: Do you have any clothes in your closet that are designed to be worn a bunch of different ways? I’m fascinated by pieces that magically transform from a dress into a shirt, and then, with a few twists here, an adjustment there, BAM! — you get a cape.
I have something like that called the Nikki 5-Way Dress. I wore it the other day to grab lunch and run some errands.
So far, I’ve tried it the five different ways, but to be honest, the only way I really feel comfortable in it is if I wear it off the shoulder, draped and tied at the waist like in these pics.
When I wear it with my arms through both sleeves, or as a tunic (where you hike up the dress), I feel like I’ve been devoured by material, like I’m swimming in it.
Yeah, might be a little too much dress for me… It would probably be easier if you’re taller.
I do love the draping Grecian goddess angle, though.
Oh, and I also love, LOVE that the jersey material doesn’t wrinkle, so I can skip ironing. Added bonus: it’s machine washable, too.

A solid-color dress with a simple neckline like this one begs for a bold necklace. Here I’m wearing a multi-stranded beaded number that I found last year, but I bet something like this coral bib necklace by designer Amrita Singh would also look really cute.
Have I ever told you about how I like to keep extra pairs of emergency shoes in the car? No seriously, my back seat looks like a DSW exploded.
That’s why I’m wearing different shoes in the last pic. I started the day wearing those gray and beige platform sling backs by Kate Spade up at the top, but around noon I got the urge to change into the nude L.A.M.B pump there at the bottom… My feet are just fickle that way, and the nude pumps are my go-to pair when I want to look taller.
