Made Easy: Wearing a Dress as a Skirt

I am rocking this dress as a skirt today.  I've done this before because I like all of my pieces, (but especially dresses which are harder to remix and restyle) to be versatile and worn in unexpected ways.  Unfortunately, I found that keeping my top tucked-in and in place the whole day was a little high maintenance; when it comes to my clothes, I definitely try to avoid anything that requires too much adjusting.

This time around, I used a little hack to properly secure my top from fellow blogger Elle of Fast Food & Fast Fashion. Her trick definitely worked like a charm - no adjustments necessary!

  2. I totally am now convinced I need to try this dress as a skirt thing... I'm still scared, but this is convincing...
