Today was a day off, so I decided to take advantage of that and work on my entry in the Chictopia Teen Vogue Contest. The task was to choose one piece of clothing from your wardrobe, and 'remix' it in 3 different ways. I decided to choose the gorgeous tutu-esque skirt from Miss Patina, and it was quite hard to choose just 3 looks to wear with this beauty.
Look 1 - Bow Down
This skirt always makes me feel like a princess, so my first instinct was to make a deliciously doll-like outfit consisting of bows and sparkly things. I paired the Miss Patina skirt with the nude toned dress from Urban Behavior (styling it as a top), and put a white bow belt over. I finished off the look by pulling on some white knee socks also from Urban Behavior, my maryjane heels from Spring, and a black bow headband to pull together the bow theme. Feel queasy from all the girlishness? I do.

Look 2 - Safari Chic
I had this button up top from Urban Behavior sitting in my closet for awhile, and I never knew how to style it quite right. I randomly threw it on with the skirt one day and rather liked the result. It reminded me of something a fashionista might wear in the amazon, or on a safari. To continue that theme, I tied a thrifted animal-print scarf as a bow around the collar and decided I was ready for lions, tigers, bears...oh my?

Look 3 - Casual Schoolgirl
For the last look, I wanted to make the skirt a little more subtle, casual and a piece that could be worn in everyday scenarios; such as school. Nothing screams schoolgirl quite like knee socks, so I decided to try out the new pair I got from Spring, and they ended up looking great with the lace up booties from Forever 21. The floral blouse from Urban Behavior allowed the skirt to appear more casual, but the addition of the over sized sweater tied with a thin belt is what allowed this skirt to remix from fancy to everyday. Adding the bow headband tied together the schoolgirl theme nicely.

Hope you liked all my remix looks :)
