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.

  12. I always try to turn my dresses into skirts but for some reason it never turns out. You need the right kind of dress that's for sure. Love how you styled it! And those shoes are super cute :)

    It's so great how versatile a dress actually is. You did such a great job with transforming it in a skirt :-). Your wavy hair is so pretty too :-)
