One Dress, Three Ways

April 27, 2015
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Target/designer collaborations, so when I saw this Issac Mizrahi for Target dress at the flea market in my size and in perfect condition, I grabbed it.  And can I just add it cost less than my latte that day?

I thought it would be fun to try to style it for a party, for work, and for the weekend, so this is what I came up with.

Party look:

Outfit Details & Shopping Ideas

Red pumps – BCBG Paris
Snakeskin clutch – thrifted vintage
Rhinestone bracelet – vintage (Grandma’s)

For work:

Outfit Details & Shopping Ideas

Practical heels – Franco Sarto  (Ross)
Shop comfortable pumps at Zappos
Handbag – thrifted vintage
Cropped blazer – H&M
Shop black blazers at Loft

For the weekend:

Outfit Details & Shopping Ideas

Denim jacket – Lucky Brand (Marshalls)
Gladiator sandals – Seychells (DSW)
Straw tote – Burlington
Cuff bracelets – vintage (Grandma’s)

I thought styling it weekend casual would be the toughest, but I think I ended up liking that outfit best. What do you think? 

Have you ever bought anything at the flea market?  We were there looking for antiques, but hey, you never know what you might find!

    What a pretty and versatile dress. I prefer the party look 'cause it lets the dress shine by itself.

      Yeah you can see the dress best styled for the party for sure! Thanks so much for stopping by! OXOX

    That seriously is the cutest dress ever! I love all the ways you styled it but the denim jacket look is my favorite! Have a great week! Peace! Cheryl

      That turned out to be my fav look too, Cheryl! OXOX

    Wow! What an impressive steal! I'm loving the third look with the denim jacket and gladiator sandals. I want to be wearing it right now!

      Oh you're the cutest, Whitney! OXOX

    Fantastic dress! This is what I would call the perfect school-teacher dress, so stylish and yet so practical. Great way you styled it by the simple change of shoes and jackets.

      Thanks Trina! It is a good teacher dress! OXOX

    Great white dress. Love it with the red pumps. I also think that a LWD looks great with a denim jacket. Your sandals and tote on the last outfit are lovely.

    Happy Monday!

      Thanks Ada. I ended up liking that last outfit the most too! OXOX

    Ooooh, I like both iterations! And, as a fellow Target/designer collab fan, bravs on scoring that dress! It's super fantabulous. Oh, speaking of collabs, do you do DesignNation over at Kohl's? I don't because their price points tend to skew too high for me, but the current MILLY collection caught my eye this weekend and I actually found it more appealing to me than the Lilly. Gasp, right? ;p

      I totally need to get to Kohls soon to check out Milly! OXOX

      Haha …well, you don't always find great stuff like this, but the hunt is fun! My husband and I go to look for antique furniture and decorations for our house. OXOX

    What an awesome find! It looks like you'll be getting a lot of good wear out of this dress since it seems easy to dress up or dress down. Might have to go find me an LWD now. 🙂

    Gorgeous dress. What a great find! And Latte's are clearly overprized ;-P

    All styling versions look good and I love the thrifted handbag you used in the second outfit.

    What a great dress! I tend to only buy accessories from the flea market because I'm plus sized, but occasionally I find a winner. Love the way you styled the dress all 3 times!
