Edit and repeat

Sometimes I find a combination of accessories that I like so much, I simply have to repeat them.
While I may not "officially" be doing some kind of no repeats challenge, I am making a point to not repeat an outfit, and I do in fact photograph my outfits every single day, not just the days I blog.

The first time around I was embracing the military and lace trend, the army green jacket, the big gold cuff, my 'tough' chains, and the contrast of the frilly lace.

Lace Dress Ebay - Jacket Free People - Sandals Nine West - Belt Thrifted - Cuff Max & Chloe - Necklace Kohls - Sunnies Old Navy

I liked the combination so much that I decided to switch out the dress and necklace and give it another go.

Which is your favorite? 
Do you try not to repeat outfits, or do you like to just stick with what works?

Both outfits are great, but I really like the first one with the lace. I love the military/feminine look. The tassel necklace in the second photo is really cool too :)

Viv said...

Oooh love the both! But I think the second is my favorite :)
I try not to repeat outfits, but sometimes I love an outfit so much I repeat it...or I'm too lazy to pick something out XD

I try not to repeat outfits too. This is a most excellent jacket and would be versatile to wear with many things. But the silhouette of the lace dress is just breathtaking.

Sara said...

Can't make me choose! hah. I was smitten with the lace, but then I cheated on it with the print of the 2nd dress! ;P

Oh and the edit & repeat is pretty much how I get through my life! haha. :D

eek said...

I love how just changing the dress makes the outfit look completely different!

Since I've started blogging my outfits I am more conscious of repeating outfits but I still do it!

Shelby said...

i LOVE both outfits... but i have to say that the lace is my favorite, that dress is so delicate and beautiful and contrasts perfectly with the tough pieces!! i only photograph my outfits on the days i blog and try not to repeat too much (though i repeat a lot without posting), though it is really difficult when i find a trend or look that i truly am dazzled by... no harm done i think, it isn't realistic to never repeat <3shelby

Sarah Dee said...

I'm more, if it works then i wear it all the time! Luckily I have enough dresses that its not too obvious... i hope ;) i love the first look

Gray Skies said...

I really love both looks! I'm guilty of wearing the exact same outfit over and over again, but ever since I started my blog I've been trying not to do that! And honestly, I have so many clothes that I could probably go a few years without repeating an outfit.

Alex Elizabeth said...

My favorite's the lace, but I rather like the other dress as well. I try not to repeat outfits, but I don't have enough clothing not to. There are very few looks I'll repeat in their entirety, but jewelry is an entirely different story. I'll become obsessed with a pair of earrings and wear them three months straight sometimes.

allie said...

I love both looks! But I really like the lace one a lot, that dress is so pretty! I'll repeat looks very rarely, most of the time though I try to switch out at least part of an outfit, even if the concept may be the same.

wow, impressive that you photograph your outfits everyday. I don't know which outfit is best, they are both so lovely, I love the lace of course, but definitely love the accessories elements from the second one. :)

Jenn said...

I definitely try to make a conscious effort not to repeat an outfit, but I know it'll happen.

I like the second outfit the best. The colors just seem to go together well.

Frannie Pantz said...

When i was a junior in high school, I literally wrote down every outfit I wore everyday so as not to repeat it. I feel ya. I love the lace/military contrast in the first one and the dress is great in the second. I love the belt too and the tassel necklace!

Jessica Gitler said...

silvergirl said...

love both looks, but the first is my fav. I think it is the bold contrast with the lace
I am a remixer, I hate to repeat and hated it even before I became a blogger
In high school we had a rule... no repeating an outfit for 2 weeks
We actually kept a chart!

The looks are so different, I am not sure which one I like more! The lace is gorgeous but I really also dig the more modern and streamlined second look! I try not to repeat outfits but when you're short on time (and imagination) in the morning, sometimes I can't help it!

MosaMuse said...

the detail of the first dress is great! so delicate
but i love all your outfits :)

I like it both ways but the dress in the second set is really spectacular! I don't have a policy on outfit repeats per se but I usually don't bother to photograph an outfit that I know is a repeat.

Jen said...

I seriously admire you for being able to take your picture everyday and post them as well! I can never seem to time to (or I lack the energy to). That lace dress is absolutely gorgeous on you and I adore how you styled it up :)

Vanessa said...

I love the lace dress look. It's such a good contrast of tough and soft.

tinajo said...

Love it - you look mighty cute! :-)

Sigh - Banana Republic will be among the first stores I´ll hit when I go to America in September... :-)

Lyosha said...

lovely outfits! I love 1st dress more than the second but the second outfit is awesome as well.
this combination is great - I'd repeat it too!

That lace dress....oh, I die!

If you ever decide you are tired of it, let me know if you want to swap or sell it!

Andie said...

there is just something I love about the second outfit. Not sure what, though!

Serene said...

Okay....I like them both, but the first one (lace) just makes my heart pitter patter! This is FABULOUS and a stellar combination! ~Serene

Lindsay said...

I love them both, but have to say the punch of color in the second look won me over. That and your sassy bun. Love.

Piper Alexander said...

I prefer the 1st, but they're both nice! I try not to repeat outfits, but there are some lazy days when I will. They never feel the same the 2nd time around.

Amber Blue Bird said...

I like both looks but i think the lace dress is my fave. I am have soft spot for lacey things

rlutz said...

I love them both, but the lace is my favorite...Great style mix with the tough and frilly!

Kristin said...

That tassel necklace is awesome!

Sarah said...

Both these looks are fabulous. I adore that second dress. great pattern and color.

Although I don't have any rules I follow or anything, I do try not to repeat outfits. I think it's mostly because I take outfit shots almost every day--I don't want to repeat on the blog! Anyway, I think repeating the same "idea" is a different story--that I do all the time! I love both of these looks, and how they're a similar concept but completely different at the same time. I think the lace dress look is my favorite!

Marie said...

Hi Lydia! I hope you are doing well.:D

Both outfits look polished and chic but the second one caught my eye. I am loving the earthy colors and how they make your skin tone glow.:D

Sarah said...

My favorite is definitely the outfit with the lace dress. The combo of feminine and masculine is dead on.

StyleIDnet said...

Beautiful with both outfits BUT TOTALLY IN LOOOOVE with the 1st one. Lace and military jacket?? EPIC!! great styling.

Gracey said...

Both are great, but I really, really like the first one. The juxtaposition of military and lace really appeals to me (I think it's a trend I actually tried, so that speaks volumes).

And that jacket is brilliant. Best one I've seen by far.

Kavery said...

Both outfits look good with the military jacket but the lace dress has an egde over the other dress. Because it's lace and I'm partial to it in any form!

Rebecca said...

Both versions look great. If a combination of accessories works, stick with it.

Mrs. J said...

Both outfits are wonderful, but I love the print on the second dress. Plus the fringe necklace is really cute.

I need to start taking pictures of my outfits everyday!

Mrs. J said...

BTW, If I do repeat a look I try to alter it in some way.

LaynahRose said...

Woah. Favorite!
Teach me your waysss!

Julie Del said...

I love both! But I REALLY love the lace! The contrast of the girly-ness against the toughness is perfect. =)

Lorena said...

Both looks are fabulous ! My fave is the first one.
When I post an outfit I am usually wearing it at the moment. I take my pics early morning before going to work and post - ehem- post.
SO, anyways - I usually try to never repeat, gotta change something, if not I feel like i am wearing a uniform,

Marusya V said...

I like the second one. More earthy look. And your golden cuff... I heart!
re: if I like a particular look can wear it more than once. But see I am easily get bored with looks;)

Claire said...

i love that lace dress! it's so lovely. i've been wanting to wear more lace. and i like how you paired the military jacket with it. i can see why you accessorized two dresses the same way. it's a great look. i like both looks, not sure which is my fave. i like both dresses so much!

I love them both. They have totally different looks. It's unrecognizable from first glance that you repeated anything, you know? It just looks like two really awesome looks. Looks that I will be stealing. mwah!
