Dress? Thrifted Shoes? DvF, Style Sense (here in purple... kinda expensive but these shoes are so comfy and unexpectedly sexy) Jacket? Costa Blanca Clutch? Thrifted

I think it is time to get this dress made into a skirt. I love the unusual print but I have a hard time working around the collared halter top. If a collared halter top sounds awkward, that is because it is. I end up tucking the collar under and out of sight and pinning the front to try and keep it all in place. If the dress were a high waisted skirt, I would wear it a lot more. I might even get brave one day and wear the high waisted skirt with a crop top. Exposing a sliver of midriff? This feels like highschool... Except now I won't end up in detention with a wardrobe infraction.

LOve the pattern, for all of my dresses that are in my "make into skirt" pile, I currently wear with a sweater or top over it for a faux skirt look.

I scrolled back looking for the collar before reading your secret pinning, lol. The dress and moto jacket combo is superb, but it would indeed make for an awesome high waist skirt! The print and color are so lovely.

That's a great idea to convert it into a skirt. You made me think of a halter dress my cousin gave me that I never wear. I'm going to turn it into a skirt! Thanks!

showing my midriff always makes me feel like high school. Showing your belly was so fashionable and scandalous.
