economize: LAYER

It's no secret that the economy sucks right now but regardless of what the economy is doing it's always good to know how to get the most for your money!  Getting creative with layering is a great way to get your money's worth out of an item and keep your wardrobe looking fresh at the same time! 

The weather is cooling off but it is the perfect time to get a great deal on spring/summer merchandise.  What to do?  By layering you can snatch up these bargins and still dress for the current weather.  For example a sleeveless or short sleeve dress is great on it's own when the weather permits BUT you can also throw on a long sleeve top underneath and even ad tights or leggings and a pair of boots and you've got a fall/winter look!  Now you have a dress that you bought for a great price that you can wear right now when the weather is cool AND that you can wear again in spring/summer.  That is definitely getting the most for your money.

We recommend using solid colors or minimal prints/graphics, since you are already layering you don't want too many other things going on in your outfit.  Here are some great layering ideas available right now on

This pleated dress by Mike & Chris is so adorable how could you pass it up?  Don't!  Simply pair this dress up with the Skull Thermal by KJ Clothing and you can wear it for fall and again in the spring. 

The Chestnut Dress by ecoSkin is simply a must have.  Lightweight, short sleeve and can be tied in the back or front.  Pair it up with the KJ Angel Wing Thermal and you're set for a chilly day!

The Crew Neck Tank Dress by Mike & Chris is a wardrobe essential, after all every girl needs a little black dress!  Good thing this one looks so cute with the KJ Clothing Deer Thermal underneath.  Now you can enjoy this LBD all year round!
