#TheMessyProject ----- A Mullet?


its baaaaaaaaackkkkk!!!!!!







Welcome back to Round 8 of #TheMessyProject!!! If you are new around here & have yet to hear about the project, you can check out all the info HERE..... but here's just a quick little intro to help you get more acquainted to the project  ----> 






so this round I tried a trend I wanted to try for awhile with #TheMessyProject but I knew it was going to be a challenge for the girls. PLUS when you get an item like they did, it can be very hard to see the MANY different ways it can be styled...but its possible & this months girls are going to show you how...5 different ways!!!! 



So this month the girls were sent a "mullet" dress as I like to call it - long in the back, short in the front....& just because we are still in the mist of winter in some places it doesn't mean you can't still be wearing dresses....you just have to think outside of the box. 







so like usual I love adding themes to my Messy Project outfits....when I looked at this dress & then looked in my closet two different looks came to mind - I could totally turn this into a rocker dress with a leather jacket & my biker boots OR I could turn this into 1970s glam....



i went glam. 




BOOTS - Jessica Simpson



since the dress was short in the front & I didn't want to wear tights, but still wanted to cover most of my legs I chose to wear my over the knee boots. Over the knee boots can be tricky because you have to pair them with the perfect outfit so it's not overlapping or taking over too much of your body. A 'mullet' dress is perfect for high boots. 



Then to go with my 70s glam theme I put my faux fur vest over the dress - which by the way is THRIFTED.....& I added dark, smokey makeup to my eyes to give it a night time disco feel. I completed my look by dressing myself in gold jewelry.... & one fabulous piece you can purchase today! 





The gorgeous crystal necklace is a NEW item from KO Jewelry & the rest of jewelry is from LSB

so what do you think? 

how would've you styled the dress? are you a fan of the 'mullet' look? 



Wanna see how everyone styled the dress?? & they're all SO different so you'll be able to see that a simple dress like this can have 5 DIFFERENT looks!



Show them some lala loveee ---->

Love the way you styled both - but especially the second! I have no idea how I'd put it together but it would most likely pale in comparison to your ensemble xo

Um, I want and NEED this dress! A million ways to style! I can't wait to check out the other ladies!! Kelly, I know I have said it before, but this is by far the MOST original blog idea ever and it's so fun!

Amber Cease said...

Really LOVED this piece... never would've been something I'd consider wearing (I'm not much of a skirt/dress kind of gal), BUT I'm really inspired to seek out something similar to this... all you ladies did COMPLETELY DIFFERENT things with it, so many options! :)

ashbash said...

LOVE this outfit!!! Only you can pull that dress off, but I would probably chose to style the dress that way also! I like how you added in the champagne. That vest reminds me of almost famous.

good post! good outfit!!!
