Old Dress, New Skirt

My Threads: Dress (worn as skirt): TJ Maxx, Sweater: H&M, Pumps: Jessica Simpson, Clutch, Bracelets, and Necklace: Forever 21, Watch: Michael Kors

What's the best way to expand your wardrobe without buying anything? Pretend your dresses are skirts.    I know this isn't exactly a new concept, but I finally decided to try it. And I managed to fool Marc into thinking I had a skirt on. Success? I guess so.

The problem was with keeping the sweater tucked into the belt. It occasionally decided it didn't want to be restricted and freed itself. A pretty minor problem, I'd say.

And here's the proof that this is in fact a dress. Because I'm a huge fibber, and you probably didn't believe me without proof, right? 

I'm not really a fibber, that was a total fib.

Anyway, I hope you had a fabulous weekend! 

Linking up with Watch What I'm Wearing and YOLO Monday.

    My white lace dress is my favorite dress to wear as a skirt, too! :)
