Is it a Skirt? Is it a Dress?

I’ve been pushing myself to refashion items in my wardrobe that I don’t wear often enough, but are keepers.  It’s been a rewarding process because it has helped me silence those voices in my head that say, “you need more stuff!”

The dress I’m wearing today is a Claude Brown dress that I found in Daffy’s a year ago.  I’ve probably worn it twice (Dressed for Success & Classic Red, Black, and White) since then.  The dress is very luxe-looking, so I’ve only reached for it on days I felt I needed to “dress up.”

Today’s post gives this dress a mini makeover, a new look that has left me excited about other styling possibilities for it.

Dress—Claude Brown c/o Daffy’s

Shoes—Michael Kors via Macy’s (similar MK pump)
Belt—The Limited (similar)
