The Messy Project reveal....

I am so stoked to reveal this stellar and kick ass project!  I was so freaking excited when I was given the opportunity to be involved in this month's Messy Project!  It's an amazing way for each of us to express ourselves fashion wise.  I don't follow every trend, and I tend to dress like a punk rocker and when I discovered the super beautiful Kelly I just had to get a spot on this project...she is amazing!

I know from my personal styling experience that a lot of people have trouble styling certain items. They may look at a top and instantly think "I can't wear that...what would I do with that"?  So I wanted to find a fun way to interact with other bloggers incorporating fashion help. Something to convey who we are and show our style. To put our creative minds to work. To challenge us to step outside the box.  To express our inner fashionista. To show people the different ways to style an item depending on your body type and you.
                                                      -Kelly @ MessyDirtyHair 

The Deal:
1 Item
5 Girls
5 Different Looks
1 Major Blog Post Day

My talented hubby was able to capture these images for me.  We just drove around downtown Richmond and he had the "eye" to pick the spots to show off my Messy piece :).  

I chose to pair my tunic with:
Distressed black jeggings 
Black wedges
triple layer bib necklace
Ottoman Rib Tube Top

Take a look friends and let me know your thoughts.....

I cannot express how much fun this project this was.  I am very happy and feel so fortunate to have been joined with the other fabulous ladies who are dressing up this piece in their own way, everyone's individual take on styling this piece just gives me such a great feeling of happiness! 

Be sure to check out the other fantastic ladies's on how they chose to style up this piece and what accessories they chose to express themselves. 

And of course the bad ass Kelly @MessyDirtyHair

Hope you enjoyed loves!!!   Kelly is continually keeping this project going and she also has other mini projects that she features on her blog as well....if you are interested, please check it out and put yourself out there!

We all can express ourselves in our own way and be beautiful!  This is a great example that we  all have a different, and cool sense of style!
