Wardrobe Wednesday - Remixed

Why hallow Wardrobe Wednesday-ers.  How was your week?

I hope you are inspired to pop on a little bit of pretty every day and that you'll come share with me.  This week we have a brand new theme.  In honour of New Zealand Music month, and as suggested by Miriam some months ago this month is about about the Remix

So one garment (or accessory - but if you just wear the same necklace every week that's not as awesome as thinking up a different way to accessorize or wear your dress four ways, if you get me?) worn each week with a different spin on it. (oh, I know - but its music month so I get to put in as many music-related puns as I can.  So there.)

As usual there really are no rules.  Just dress up, make yourself feel good and linky up here every week.  Oh and prize I hear you ask?  How about either a $30 iTunes credit or a music voucher or an $80 Sailor Spy voucher prize winner will choose.  I have the tough job of judging you all once again.

December is cold. This is the warmest mix since Baileys Met Coffee

I had grand plans to have a special famous guest to interview and judge our efforts this month, but errrr no one returned my calls.  I guess I'll just have to love their fashion from afar.  More on that next week....but for now, some pictures:

Silk Shift: Sailor Spy 
Dress: (worn as a slip) Starfish
Merino Cardi: Max (outlet)
Necklace: Chevron pendant by Sly Fox
Shoes: Kelly Green heels by Isabella Anselmi

You do realise that I can't let the opportunity go past to show you how versatile my own designs are right?  

I wore this out to a very rare dinner date with my man the other night, courtesy of a voucher sent to us by this awesome lady.  We stopped at Hagley Park on the way into town to snap these quick shots.  

Oh and I nearly forgot - the winner from last months Inspired by series was

Lost Seamstress is my pick. I loved both of her April posts; the 11th -   with her boots and jersey combo, & the 18th –  that yellow necklace = loved it! I like her attention to detail and the way she works textures together so well. She has inspired me!   
In this way she nudged herself ahead ever so slightly from Miriam 
 in her blue with red stripes number (ha! moxie!),
