The ultimate style challenge is finding new ways to wear the same pieces that you have in your closet. Suz Stephenson, a very special FashioniSTA friend, has taken this challenge on to the greatest degree, and has enlisted STA’s help.

For the entire month of January, Suz will wear the same dress each day, using it to create 31 unique, individual outfits. Through donated accessories, she has reinvented this L.L. Bean dress into an outfit for any occasion. Whether you’re going to a job interview, a night out, a normal day at the office or a networking event, Suz is successfully proving that it doesn’t take a wonder-closet to pull off style. And one of the best things about this endeavor? At the end of the month, Suz is giving all of her donated pieces to Dress for Success, an organization that helps women reenter the workforce.

Maybe it’s our STA mantra, but we really connected with this project as a way to show people how to be frugally fashionable. Suz has encouraged women to watch their wallets while building a career-appropriate wardrobe, and we love that she’s also a fan of resale! She told us, “Shopping second-hand allows you to determine which higher-end qualities are worth spending money for… without making a large investment.”

We provided Suz with some STA-approved pieces to help her create two work-appropriate, yet stylish looks, including a belt in the first photo and the statement necklace in the second one. Check them out!
