Making Old Clothes New (Skirt Into A Dress) October 20, 2008

Skirt – I can’t even remember how much I paid for it

Vintage Belt – $8.00

Carlos Santana Shoes – $65.00

Let’s face it the economy stinks right now.  I’m trying to make a conscious effort to cut back on unnecessary spending.  Sadly, that includes cutting back on shopping.

I was searching through my closet the other day and found an old white skirt.  I cinched it with my fav vintage belt, heels and headed out for a night on the town.

I received so many compliments that night and no one could believe that it was originally a skirt.

    I do the same exact thing in the summer — I learned this trick from my sister. We call it a “skress.”

    How very clever! And you look sexy. I wouldn’t have known it’s a dress. Oh, and the one thing that would complete this outfit? This geometric watch I’m in love with and would have bought if I had the paycheck. Lol.
