How to wear an over sized skirt as a dress
How do i even begin? Sometimes i do things on impulse that could end up being the biggest mistake ever or the best thing ever. Now i was in a store a long time ago and i saw this checkered piece in the prettiest colors but i wasn't ready to get it. Went back again a few times and it was still on the rack. I always wanted it but i was just never ready to buy it.  On this faithful day, i yanked it off the rack like, "Okay! I get it. You so want to be mine and you can't wait any much longer, or else...." Without thinking twice or trying it on, i paid and walked out feeling really good.

So i get home and i didn't even try this wannbemine skirt until a few days later. Omg! Nooooo!! It was big! It is actually a wrap skirt that pins down on both sides so I kept pulling it around my waist with the hope that it will magically fit but it kept slipping right down below my hips. In fact the only thing barely holding it up there was my little behind. I wasn't returning it, i thought to myself. While playfully trying to figure out what to do with it, i pulled it over my chest and BAM! I created an outfit- A strapless checkered pleated dress. Put a belt on it to cinch the waist and threw this yellow trench coat over my shoulders. Done!

I'm glad everything turned out great. I'd never guess this is actually a skirt. And it's way better as a dress- looks amazing! :)

Wow.. those bright colors look fantastic on you!!! p.s-gorgeous dress :)

Ivana Split said...

I would have never realized that it used to be a skirt. On you it looks so stunning! The belt is a great accessory and I do like those boots...Now that I think of it, I have pulled out this skirt to dress trick a few times myself.

p.s. I just love yellow! This outfit feel so positive especially with that yellow coat!

Unknown said...

Do you really wanna tell me that this dress is actually a skirt? OMG! You're a real designer, honey! Fantastic. But I wonder whether it had been possible to change it? Was it the last one cause otherwise you could have bought it in one size smaller?

Love it anyway!
