Today's Everyday Fashion: DailyBuzz Style 9x9

I'm a huge fan of using the items you already have in your closet and re-working them in different ways. Today I'm sharing how I took my polka dot dress from this summer (left) and turned it into a fall/winter look (right)! The addition of a velvet jacket, boots and tights make the dress perfect for a holiday party or other winter festivity. This outfit is also part of the latest DailyBuzz style challenge, and on Tuesday I'll be posting a link so you can see how the other bloggers wore polka dots, too. How do you re-work the items in your closet for different seasons? Are you rocking the polka dot trend this fall/winter?
