Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I know, I know, I should wear something green, but I just was not in the mood. Instead I am wearing my striped sheath dress with asymmetric hem again. This time I opted for a pop of color. Ok, ok, I could have styled this outfit with my green turtleneck sweater instead of the red one! But red is my second beloved color.

I had found this shift in a local consignment store and immediately had a lot of styling ideas. Since the price was right, and the quality was fine, I had to have it. It still had the tags! This dress was probably the find of someone’s relative and did not fit the taste or size of the person who got it. It is amazing how often you find new, never worn items with still the tags attached in second hand stores. 😼

In case you missed the posts, here are the four ways of how I styled this beauty so far.

Top of the World Style linkup-party

Welcome to the 51st Top of the World Style fashion linkup party. Thanks to those of you who linked up in the past. Welcome back. Welcome if it is the first time at the party. I can’t wait to see what you are wearing this week.

As usual, the Readers’ Fav OOTD goes to the link you clicked the most, which was Carina’s post. She is the blogger of Cat in Amsterdam. This swan skirt is really stunning! Rebecca from Red Tag Chic Los Angeles became My Fav OOTD for her modern interpretation of this 70s style front button skirt. I had one exactly like hers back then when I was a kid.
