First outfit of 2012 :) This is one of my favorite dresses; it’s one of those pieces you just have sitting in your closet going to waste because it doesn’t get the wear it deserves. I originally bought it to wear at my final exhibition for the pre college art program I did during the summer! I found it in the sale section at H&M for $20. It’s one of the rare dresses that actually fits me quite well in the bodice but it’s really low cut unfortunately. Sadly, that was the only time I wore this dress for months. As I was going through my closet again this weekend, I started wishing that this dress had the skirt piece separate, then thought “why don’t I just wear something over it?”. I can’t believe I didn’t think of that before :P Throwing a sweater or more casual top over a fancy dress is a great way to make it wearable for the day.
