Dressing for the Fashion Show

I try to keep my posts interesting and different. However, I don’t actually wear something different every day. In fact, I like to show how to remix apparel and get lots of use out of key pieces.

This Selma Karaca dress is an example of how I’ve been reusing the same dress. I wore this dress to a Halloween wedding in New Orleans last year, and again this spring for the Everybody, Everywear challenge. I also wore it this past weekend to the Zebra Club fashion show.

Dress: Selma Karaca
Jacket: Newport News
Earrings: Gifted
Rings: Fuego
Bracelets: Damselfly
Clutch: Thrifted
Boots Thrifted

I chose this dress mainly because the theme of the fashion show was “vintage boudoir.” I thought the lace added the boudoir element and the jacket was vintage in its cut.

Next time I wear this, I’ll try dressing it way down. Perhaps pairing it with tights and a denim jacket. When I do, you’ll see it here.

  1. I must say this is a really slinky and sassy outfit on you. I like the color and the lacy details. And it really flatters your figure. You look really chic and glamorous with the jacket and boots. Perfect outfit for a fashion show.

    great outfit for a fashion show! i love your little blazer/jacket!

  3. Thanks for writing! The dress was a great find. 70% off the lowest price at a boutique that was closing. Otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to get such a cool designer piece. Now I have to make sure I wear it often!

Let's chat! I love hearing from you:
