I must have a thing for not wearing dresses as dresses...because we're going for two days in a row now.
Today's outfit is a fantastic combination of a whole lot of great staples.
All such great things to have in your closet for instant classy outfits.
I actually altered this skirt recently, having purchased it from Goodwill last year with the intent to do so. I used to own a similar one that I altered into a girl's skirt because it was too short for my more conservative style and had practically no extra hem to bring down...Forever 21 problems. So I was ecstatic when I found this one.
Look how much more fabric was hiding down there in the hemline:
So I literally took a seam ripper to it and resewed a hem using a simple top stitch (I'm lazy) and made this skirt like 4 inches longer. Much better than the original, in my opinion.
And I love the full skirt.
It also doesn't look too shabby with the belt I made from last week's refashion:
