1 weekend, 2 events, 1 dress, 2 outfits

I recently bought this colour-block dress from Which is unusual for me, because despite the obscene amount of time I spend on the internet, I don't do very much shopping online. I mostly stick to online window shopping and online lusting and drooling and admiring other people's stylishly composed blogs. But anyway, that's not the point of this post. This past weekend I had two very different events to attend. Friday night, a birthday party. Saturday night, a family get together. I decided to wear my recent acquisition to both events but try to achieve different looks. Here's what I did: 

Above is the Friday night outfit. The birthday party was actually a murder masquerade
party and my character was a Latvian pop singer. Actually, my character was just a pop singer, I added the Latvian bit. Whatever, it came to me, and I went with it. Much to the delight one of the party guests who is ethnically Latvian and then wanted to have a conversation. Awkwardness ensued since I speak no Latvian. So any way, I treated the dress as a dress, paired it with a statement necklace and tougher heels, and voila: Latvian pop star....the mask was provided at the party. But you can see it on my instagram.

And this was the Saturday night outfit. My nephew Noah was born on November 14th, and on my mother's side of the family we have a cultural custom to throw a naming ceremony. So all my family gathered together to officially name Noah, we talked about the meaning of his name and what we hope for him, and of course ate a lot of good food. So for this event, I wanted to treat the outfit more like a tunic or a Indian "kameez", wore it with grey jeggings, a blazer, more subdued shoes and accessories and voila: proud aunty Natasha.

So what do you think? Do you have any ideas for how I can restyle this dress for the next event? Let me know!
