Wear It Three Ways :: Crescent City Tank

 photo threewaytank_zps44395266.jpg  photo WearItThreeWaysWords_zpse417bb95.jpg

                  Introducing a new monthly segment on the blog -

                    :: Wear It Three Ways :: 

   In this segment I will be taking one piece from my closet and 
 styling it in three ways; a simple daytime look, a fun look to 
 wear out at night, and dressy/elegant look. 

   The piece for this month's segment is the Crescent City Tank
 from The Elizabeth Chronicles Tee Shop! I fell in love with this
 tank for multiple reasons. The first being that it mixes two of 
 my favorite things; NOLA (the crescent city) and Chanel! This 
 tank is also very versatile. I've used it in three looks but I 
 can easily think of countless other ways to wear it, I've even 
 worn it to the gym! (Who says you can't look stylish while 
 working out?) 

                            Let's get down to business....

     Outfit Details // Tank, The Elizabeth Chronicles + Jeans, Forever21 + Studded HoBo Bag, 
    The Limited + Leopard Sandals (also in black), Target + Chain Bracelet & Rings, Silpada //

       1) Daytime -  For this daytime look it's all about keeping it easy and functional throughout 
     the day. I paired the tank with some dark wash skinny jeans, leopard sandals (sooo         
     comfortable!), hobo carry-all bag, and simple silver jewelry to keep it casual but still classy. 
     This look is perfect for     making snoball runs (tis the season, right?), shopping at the  
     grocery, or running around town.

 Outfit Details // Tank, The Elizabeth Chronicles + Leather Pants, Kirna Zabete for Target + 
 Clutch, BCBG + Heels, Prabal Gurung for Target + Jacket, The Limited + Earrings, Juicy 
 Couture (available here in white) + Bracelet, Ann Taylor // 

  2) Night Time - When dressing for a night out I keep my outfit simple but always make sure to 
 add something sparkly. I added these colorful Juicy Couture earrings  to play off the purple in 
 the top and the shiny leather pants!  Since the earrings were the main accessory here, I kept 
 the rest of my jewelry simple and finished off the look with a bright white jacket, snakeskin 
 clutch and  strappy heels!

 Outfit Details // Tank, The Elizabeth Chronicles + Peplum Skirt, Target + Rhinestone Earrings, 
 Forever21 + Spiked Bracelet, TopShop + Heels, Prabal Gurung for Target // 

3) Elegant - This outfit could also be worn on a night out with your girlfriends or on a date in the
 city. I paired the tank with the floral peplum skirt and although I'm not the most skilled at print 
 mixing, I think the simplicity of the tank balances off the boldness of the skirt. To amp up the  glam I added some pale pink rhinestone earrings for a feminine touch and finished it off with a 
 white spiked bracelet and strappy heels.

           Thanks for reading and I hope this segment inspires you to create some new outfits
   by refreshing some old pieces in your closet and to never be afraid of wearing the same      
   thing twice......or  three times !!

           Last Saturday night I attended and covered the Summer 
 Release Party for the New Orleans based fashion magazine; Amelie G Style.

      ( You can view my post on the Fall 12' party here ) 

    The event, held at Eiffel Society, featured pop-up boutiques from local shops around the city (including The Elizabeth ChroniclesRENU Jewelry,  Luca Falcone Custom Suitsand Hi-Lo) Jazz Singer, Meghan Stewart, a Runway Show that showcased the designer's latest looks, and the dare-devilish Aerialist Andrea Duhe who captured everyone's attention as she hung from the ceiling using a scarf. It was pretty crazy, I must say!   

    This was my second time covering the party and I had a fabulous time meeting new people, taking in the venue, shopping 
at the boutiques, and I even brought my super stylish Dad along with me as my photographer and he was sweet enough to purchase my favorite tee (the crescent city tee ) from the Elizabeth Chronicles Tee Shop! You'll be seeing it on the blog soon!
