Say Yes to Alter the Dress

Top: BP / Skirt: Arden B (similar here) / Necklace: J.Crew (last seen here and similar here) / Sunnies: Kate Spade / Shoes: Aldo / Lips: MAC-Crosswires
For the past couple years I've gotten into altering my clothes. A nip tuck here, a shorten there, you name it I've had it done to my clothes. This skirt actually used to be a dress. I've had this skirt/dress for about 8 years. I loved it as a dress! It was perfect during the summer time because it's cotton, and airy. When I got married, I could no longer use it as a dress. I was devastated that I couldn't wear one of my favorite dresses. It sat in my closet, because I wouldn't part ways with it. The dress begged to be taken out for a night on the town. One day I came up with an idea. I decided that I would make it into a skirt! Once it came back from the tailor, I fell in love once again! Now I feel like I have a brand new piece to add to my wardrobe. Do you have an item that you love, but no longer wear? Get creative, and see if you can turn it into something new and fresh.

Here is an old picture of what the dress originally looked like.
