Restyling a Bridesmaid's Dress

1 comment:

Having been a bridesmaid twice and being completely unable to restyle both dresses I know what a downer that can be, so when I was invited to join in the November Challenge to restyle a bridesmaid dress at Weddington Way I was glad and I had fun with it. 

For the traditional bridesmaid look I chose a subtle colour blocking of traditional Fall colours to give it a Christmas-y feel.

Then I dressed it down for a casual day with a denim jacket. I couldn't decide between print mixing polka dots and leopard and a simple glitter of sequins with leopard. 

I did a few more styling, told you I had fun with it ;-) and put in some mysteriousness with metallics, black jewellery and lace-up boots

A patterned cape, because it's chilly in most parts of the world now, and a fringe bag for the free-spirited.

Lastly, I styled my inner glamazon with the embellishments she craves; pulling the outfit together with a bad-ass leather jacket.

Grey Skirt::: Pink Shirt

“I've never wanted more, until I met you. ---- Christian Grey, Fifty Shades of Grey” 
― E.L. James
Dear Lord, it is sacrilege to waste such a sentence on a grey pleated skirt, but I couldn't get the damned sentence off my mind.
I couldn't also let this skirt remain buried away. Not when the pleats beckoned me. 
Wore it with this pastel pink shirt and pointy black shoes for a simple secretarial look.

A Lace Skirt Without Heels

Me without you is like;  
 a shoe without laces
a geek without braces
and a sentence without spaces
best friends, me and you

Me without you citizens of My Small World is like;
Fall without a lace skirt
A lace skirt without heels
and heels without ankle straps
best friends, me and you

This pink lace skirt and I have become fast friends this season, maybe because it looks a bit Christmas-y with the shine and shimmers. 
 I dressed it down with a plain grey tank and kept it from looking shabby by wearing my cobalt blue heels and a matching clutch; so that the look is a cross between dressed down and dressed up.
 Perfect from day to night.
