Weekly Remix : Embellished Maxi

For this weekly remix, I choose one of my favorite maxis, a cute little Rebecca Taylor embellished number.  What can I wear it with?  What can't I wear it with?!  I went a little crazy and put together nine ways I've worn it lately and that's just right off the top of my head.  On hot days I go with the vibe of the dress and wear it with wrap up sandals and a pretty fringe bag, on colder mornings I've worn it with my Free People poncho and my vintage Ariat cowboy boots.  (As a horse person, I'm a snob when it come to Ariats - go vintage or go home, the new stuff is garbage which is really sad seeing as it was a great work brand for equestrians.)   For a hot day again, I threw on my fringe vest with some beaded flats (Sam Edelman ones I love) and my bright Free People bag to really go for the hippy-dippy look.  On another cold morning, get it together weather, I wore my heavy vintage leather jacket and a baker's boy cap - hold the Barry jokes - and some boots. 
For Sunday, I pulled on my gorgeous wool/cashmere Ralph Lauren collection cape because it's pretty and used my tooled leather bag to bring the look together.  Feeling the hippy-dippy vibes again, I wore a vintage silk scarf in my hair and went with a crochet bag and barely-there sandals, only to wear a sweater the next day. (I KNOW. Hot, cold, hot, cold, what is going on?!)  I got trendy later and wore a belt bag *couphfannypack* and the last day went simple with a denim jacket and clogs.
While this dress is a statement maker, it's also simple enough that it works with almost everything and I use my jackets, footwear and accessories o make it interesting each time I wear it.
