Weekday Wear Link Up: Tiered Kmart Dresses and Clutch Bags

Enjoying the last warm days of summer back in February when I wore these, wearing some Kmart tiered dresses with some clutch bags. One a more dressy outfit for the Lunar New year, the other a more casual one for a day with my sister.


What I wore:

Earrings: Piper gold heart earrings
Necklace: Polka Luka Paradiso triple strand resin necklace transparent cobalt
Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Disney Couture Winnie the Pooh bangle
BagRebecca Minkoff Leo envelope clutch in champagne gold 


Why I wore it:

While it's traditional to wear something new and add a bit of red and gold for Lunar new year, I'd worn all my new clothes I got for Christmas or bought in January, so I went with all old favourite, this Kmart coral coloured floral print tiered maxi dress. Trying to get it closer to 30 wears, it's at 27 already. Not bad for a $25 Kmart buy, already under $1 a wear. While the dress wasn't new, the necklace was! I got it from my bestie for Christmas and I knew I wanted to wear it with this dress, it's such a good pairing for its first wear.

I wore my rose gold sandals and my champagne Rebecca Minkoff Leo clutch for a little touch of gold with my outfit - not that I really needed the clutch to go to the in laws for our traditional banquet, as we had the kids things in their usual backpack and I could have put my stuff in there. It just helped the outfit feel a little more dressed up to have a clutch. The red nail polish is the only touch of red in my outfit.




What I wore:

Marc by Marc Jacobs Dr Q Convertible clutch in electric violet | away from the blue


NecklaceHouse of Harlow 5 station necklace in black and silver
Dress: Kmart short sleeve tiered jersey dress in Fuchsia
Shoes: Kmart white chunky platform sneakers
Bracelets: the usual plus Marc by Marc Jacobs enamel turnlock stripey hinge black and white bangle
Bag: thrifted Marc by Marc Jacobs Dr Q Convertible clutch in electric violet with Rebecca Minkoff Crystal Star Shoulder Guitar strap


Why I wore it:

This was a much more casual day so I tried to dress down this fuchsia pink Kmart tiered midi dress with my chunky Kmart platform sneakers I'd got the weekend before. Was also a good excuse to wear my newly thrifted purple bag, this Marc by Marc Jacobs convertible clutch in electric violet. I got so lucky to find an authentic designer bag at the opshop, really pleased! Had to wear my old Marc by Marc Jacobs enamel bracelet too, a little bit of brand matchy-matchy although it matches the black and white in the Rebecca Minkoff embellished shoulder strap too.

I really liked the tiered fuchsia midi dress with the purple bag, and this was just the right thing for a busy day - I was parent helper at my son's school in the morning, then afterwards I went to the library and playground with my sister and the little one before lunch and picking up my son from school in the afternoon before sports in the evening. It was such a hot day so this loose oversized dress was perfect. Not so perfect for going down the slides with my son but it was hilarious to try!


Last worn: Kmart tiered midi dress, House of Harlow necklace, Marc by Marc Jacobs enamel bracelet, Kmart chunky platform sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff guitar strap, Marc by Marc Jacobs Dr Q Convertible clutch.

Other ways to wearKmart tiered midi dress and teal bag, Kmart chunky platform sneakers and culottes, Rebecca Minkoff guitar strap on love bag, Marc by Marc Jacobs Dr Q Convertible clutch and shorts.



How You Can Wear It:


A tiered dress is great for a hot day - and easy to dress up or down! With a pretty clutch bag for a family dinner, or add a strap to the clutch to wear it crossbody and put on some sneakers to make a tiered dress more casual.

  41. Both looks are fabuloso but I especially love the Kmart dress. Those colors and I am a sucker for a tropical print. The neckline is perfect, too. My 'girls' are quite large and I hate having low cut necklines that make me feel like everything is on display. This dress is perfection. And so is that clutch. A+

  52. Hi again Mika!

    Both options are great and even if the red dress is not new it is in really good conditions and you managed to give it a twist with the golden touches, specially with that clutch! It is a very elegant option but it is fresh and dynamic at the same time :)

    The hot pink option is also nice, that color is a really good option when you want to impress :)
