A fancy little trick.

Hey friends! I'm so excited for the weekend! Tonight I'm going to a Dinner Theatre, so I wanted to dress up a bit, but still be warm because it gets chilly in the restaurant. I have heard of a little "trick" of making a dress into a skirt by folding the top of the dress into the bottom, then covering up the "bulk" with a belt. I tried that today on a party dress I have that never seems to get worn, and is way too revealing to wear by itself.

It's a little hard to tell in the pic, but the bottom of the dress is all lace.

I took the white spaghetti strap top and folded it under and inside the skirt. I then tucked my top I wanted to wear into the skirt, added a belt and voila! Instant skirt!

I threw on tights so I wouldn't get chilly, and the shirt is this one I had talked about ordering from J.Crew--clearance baby heck yeah!

The belt hides the bit of bulk from the top being folded under. Looks pretty good to me!

Know any little fashion tricks that you'd like to share?
Oh, and Emily don't be surprised if I wear this top to breakfast tomorrow too. I love it that much hehe...

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
