Take 5 - Party Dress

If you haven't seen me do this before, Take 5 is my way of challenging myself to wear something in my wardrobe in five completely different ways.

We all have those items that we buy for a special occasion right?  I bought this dress for a cocktail party in Jan and so far have only worn it the once (and those pictures will not be shown!).  I'm not sure if it's the color or the high neckline, but I've struggled to think of ways to wear it other than with a chunky silver necklace, black tights and court shoes on that night..

Inspired by Jen @ Mend and Make New and her fantastic winter layering I decided that there must be something else in my wardrobe that would go with it... 

Gap black cardigan, Tesco black skinny belt, fishnet tights (from the dressup box!).

Supre white cardigan, thrifted scarf, Primark snakeskin print flats.

Zara biker jacket, Postie Plus wide belt, Tesco black suede booties.

Winter layers - H&M Striped top, Thrifted black jumper, Thrifted scarf, H&M tights, Paddington Coat Factory baker boy cap.

So comfy I'll wear this one today! Cotton on pink cardigan, $2 shop scarf, thrifted shoes, free tan belt from somewhere.

Here's the knee length dress on it's own - fitted waist, flared skirt, runched sleeves, high neckline.  I think I like the eclectic winter layered look best.  Which is your favourite?  Any other ideas?
