This is my second post about transforming cocktail dresses into new pieces (you can see the first post here). I bought this green, embellished dress for New Year’s this year because I loved the color, but after dry cleaning the dress it hung back up in my row of cocktail dresses. And this is the way it has always gone after buying a new dress for a specific event. That is why I decided to challenge myself to change some of my most recent dress purchases into something new! I transformed my lace dress into a lace turtleneck to wear to work and for this post, I transformed my New Year’s dress into more of a green skirt, although with this gray shirt, the embellishment of the top shows as well, so I pretty much just layered over my dress. This is another going out look, but far from a cocktail dress. I added my big black belt and zipper heels for some fun! I think I know what I’m wearing out for St. Patrick’s Day now!
