Shopaholic Problems

There are times when I think that I play mind games with myself. Do you ever feel that way?

{Sweater: JCrew Factory, Dress as skirt: c/o Oasap, Coat: 344 (super old), Booties: BCBG (old), Tights: Target, Necklace: Forever 21 (similar, similar), Watch: Marc JacobsBracelets: David Yurman, Forever 21, t+j Designs}

I love the idea of wearing dresses as skirts, because it essentially doubles your collection of skirts. However, I have found that it's not as easy as I originally anticipated. Most of my sweaters are not the right length to be worn with a dress. I also realized that I don't have enough plain sweaters... which makes all of this really funny because in my attempt to widen my own closet by doubling my use of dresses, I have found that I need more sweaters. Ahh, the life of a shopaholic, right!?

All of this would be not be a problem if I had myself a bunch of money to spend on shopping. I could buy myself all the sweaters, skirts, and dresses, my little heart desires. Or perhaps something more practical... like shoes. Sure, I'll even throw in 1 or 2 things for my husband! You could go on a shopping spree too, go and enter my $1,000 Giveaway!

Have a great weekend everyone, I will be back next week with my regular blogging schedule!

Hahaha....I know what you mean! Just when you think you've found a way to wear things differently, you realize that you need more stuff to make it work:P
Have a good Thursday to you too:)

I'm surely into the habit of wearing dresses as skirts :p
You look so pretty Yi-Chia <3

Nina Normalo said...

Haha :D I know this sweater problem! It just looks strange with the wrong kind of sweater.. so there is no other possibiliy than to buy new ones ;)
But your blue sweater is perfect to wear it with this dress!

I think this outfit looks great- it totally works with the dress as a skirt! Plus, that's an adorable necklace!

Sarah Hartley said...

Ok I'm so glad you said that because I keep doing the same thing. I'm all like "oh yeah, dresses as skirt, expanded wardrobe" and then every sweater I try on with them just looks ridiculous. So glad I'm not the only one!

Annie said...

I always love when bloggers/people wear dresses as skirts...but I've yet to try it! I think you've inspired me...that print is so cute, and I love the blue & purple :)

I love this idea! I have some dresses that would work perfectly as skirts. Will definitely try it. :D

Katie said...

i love that idea too but have found very few that work - the top of my dresses are too ruffly or bulky and then my sweaters are often too tight! but this one looks great! i love it!

the coat and your top go so well together! loving that color combination x

Jackie said...

It's funny, I was JUST leaving a comment on Courtney's site girlavantgarde.com about how she could wear that great striped dress she was featuring as a skirt. I saw your comment above mine and linked over to check out what you were up to today, and here you have a post about dresses as skirts! I totally try to do the same with my dresses (it's just good closet arithmatic) but you are correct that it's sometimes difficult based on the length/pattern of your tops. I like what you did here!

Pop Champagne said...

cute spring mix of the coat and the sweater, the colors are good together! hahaha yaaa life of shopaholic for sure, I relized I need more plain pieces the other day too!

Hahaha you're too funny! I've yet to try wearing a sweater/dress combo because I'm a little afraid that it's just going to look wrong on me.

Princess Martha said...

Honestly, I know what you mean about the sweater/dress situation.
I tried doing that a couple times only to find out the length really has to hit where the waist seam is or else it looks like you're wearing a sweater over a dress ;)
But if you're in the market for sweaters, now is probably the best time for it since so much is on sale...so happy shopping!!

Haha, yes, mind games with myself are much more fun than with others! I don't do this, but my wife accuses me of playing little mind games with her (she says it's my German showing). But I really don't do that. It's her playing mind games with herself by wondering if I'm playing them. I hope that makes sense. All I know is that I'm innocent. :)

So true! I rarely wear dresses as skirts because I find most don't sit right at the waist line without the right sweater. I really didn't realise your 'skirt' was a dress till you mentioned it. The print on it is really cute, can't wait to see the dress version.

I love wearing dresses as skirts as well - I started to do it last summer and went with a really simple look. jersey dresses with a simple t-shirt, sandles and sunnies. it was so comfortable to go into work like that and easy to throw on a summer scarf and go to happy hour! :)

Hah, even with a shopaholic problem, you have bought all the right pieces and put them together in a cute awesome way, loves it!! So glad I clicked on your comment that led me back to your blog, your posts' contents are info and image juicy so expect to be seeing some regular comments from me. I've just uploaded my first ever outfit post from Paris Fashion Week! I would say it's Parisian-Provoking-Chic and I credit that to the Céline foulard printed flared trousers, I guarantee you'd be mega provoked ;)

Nice color blocking with the jacket and the top.

I do like the idea of wearing dresses as skirts. Haven't gotten around to it yet.

Yes, I too wish I had a bunch of money for clothes. Though I have a feeling I'll buy other things too like a rad lap top and tons of cool software to play with.

I wish I can turn skirts into dresses. Dresses are so easy to wear; I just need to put a cardigan on. I can never find anything to wear with skirts. Maybe I need more sweaters too!

Rachel Ashely said...

Love wearing dresses as skirts too! You look great in royal blue btw!

Your dress as skirt is so cute, I love the print! And haha totally know what you mean, wearing sweaters over dresses definately requires more sweaters :D

I remember wearing practically every dress with a sweater or top of some sort before. It's a great option, but you are right, you've got to have the right things that go well together. x

Josephine said...

That dress is fabulous, and I love how you styled it as a skirt! The colors look amazing together.

I have this same problem! After I discovered this trick on another blog (M Loves M) I was so excited at all the prospects. But I quickly realized there are definitely certain dresses & certain sweaters/tops that can be put together this way.

I love your blue sweater & the pattern on the dress is cute too! Great coat!!
