Remix a Dress for a Fresh New Look + Giveaway

Thanks and hi-fives to and hosts Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic for sponsoring this Fashionista event. Glad to share my Easter dress remix tips and an amazing giveaway!

Every year, my sisters and I received new dresses for Easter and I continue the tradition with Violet. As for me though, I have a fairly new dress in my closet so I don't want to buy another one. Well, I do but that's not thrifty. It's been a high splurge month already!

How to Remix a Dress for a New Look

I purchased a new non-thrift dress for my anniversary dinner date so I will be pulling it out again for Easter and giving it a new look by shopping for bright colors, gold, and animal print affordable accessories.

If you're like me and will be adding new life to an old dress, try these thrifty tips:

Trendy Colors

Update the look using some of the season's hottest colors. I happen to be attracted to purple (radiant orchid), green (hemlock), and (celosia) orange. Even though my dress is a super bright red-orange (cayenne), I want to do some color blocking this time instead of letting the dress stand alone.

Make-Up + Nails

Switching up make-up and nail polish is probably the easiest and cheapest way to go for a new look. If you went understated the first time, kick it up a notch with makeup. Add a bold lip color or dramatic eyeshadow. If you want to put your dress front and center again, tone down face with a neutral palette that compliments your skin tone.

Statement Pieces

Fun jewelry gives new life all the time. Big and chunky bracelet cuffs. Exotic boldly colored necklaces and my personal favorite animal jewelry can set your look apart from everyone else.

You look FLY! I love the orange-y red. It's not a typical frosty pink Easter dress. It's original, like you!

I definitely would use the Rite Aid coupon to stock up on allergy meds (it's the other "gift" of the season). I'd get my daughter a new church dress with the Kohl's coupon.

Love this! I would most likely use the Best Buy deal for the Nexus because I am traveling to Vegas soon and would love to be able to travel and blog.

Great holiday dress and wonderful color. I always attend Sunrise Service so I don't dress up for church on Easter, and love putting on my sweats in the afternoon.
