Converting That Cocktail Dress

2017 Centerpiece, Personalized Glasses, and Champagne Print from
     Now that the sparkle and glitz have fizzed out and the resolutions are waning, it's time to put those New Year's Eve dresses on the shelf for another year or maybe for good.  But that would be such a shame.  Forever 21 is famous for those short little cocktail dresses and I rarely hit a New Year's Party without one, but I hate to see a gorgeous dress only get worn once and then sit on the shelf for 364 days gathering dust.  Every year I challenge myself to wear my party dresses in a more daytime or work appropriate way.  This colorful little striped dress by XXI caught my eye while I was shopping at ThredUp. I also found this beige Gap sweater on a separate trip and while it's too snug/short to wear with jeans it's great for layering under dresses or for wearing with midi skirts (outfit photos coming soon).

  1. Wow! I really like the shoes you are wearing. That dress is looking so good on you. I had my college fashion week last month in one of the LA venues and I wore something just like this. It was designed by my best friend and I had to walk the ramp wearing it. It felt great!
