Jumper dresses are one of those weird things that I love and hate. They are very versatile in that you can wear them alone or with different tops underneath which is always fun for remixing (see the remix I did with this jumper dress here). However I do find with this particular dress that it can make me look pretty frumpy. Could be the very high empire cut or the fact that it is just a bit boxy.

As much as I love this dress I decided to remove it from my closet the other day it is now in safe storage along with other items I am considering selling/giving away. I will be sad to see it go but perhaps you may see it sometime again in the future.

What are your favourite items to remix?


  1. hey Elana is your blogger of the month! I love that girl :)

    and i actually really love this dress- i don't think you look frumpy at all. i always feel like if i think a dress or skirt might be a little to shapeless on me, that adding a stacked boot helps. because that way it kind of adds more shape to the look and balances out the bagginess.

    i think i mainly love it because of the shoulders and neckline. like you said, that's a perfect piece to layer under blouses. but giving that one away will open more room for new dresses, am i right? ;)
