Blue Metallics

80 comments
Dress worn as skirt: Sportsgirl (similar), Shirt: similar, Necklace: similar, Shoes: New Look, Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Clutch: Marc by Marc Jacobs




This is the outfit I wore to one of my dear friend's birthday celebrations.

I'm ashamed to admit that I'm one of those people who wear a dress to one event and then never wear it again. Not only is this a waste of a vital closet space, but also the waste of a dress. I love this metallic dress and have worn it once to a formal I attended, I did not want this dress to have the same fate as many of my other dresses which just hang on my rack worn only once. To bring my beloved dress back I reinvented an outfit for it and decided to wear it as a skirt and have a shirt over the top, taking inspiration from my style icon Blair from Atlantic-Pacific. I'm hoping to continue doing this with my other dresses and make new outfits by wearing them as tops or skirts to overcome my guilt of wasting dresses.

Are you a person that wears a dress to one event then never wears it again? Let me know.

Thanks for reading!

  3. Unfortunately I am a 'one wear' culprit. I just find it really difficult to feel complete 'amazing' wearing the same thing twice to big events. Of course on a day-today basis it doesn't bother me at all, but for big events I always like to feel special by wearing something new and exciting! Loving your look honey!! <3

  14. I am pretty much the same - and for every occasion, I have to go out the day of and actually buy a dress. It's a waste, I know, and I keep saying I'll find another occasion for it. :D

    Anyway, love how you re-styled this metallic dress. It looks so pretty as skirt. x

  39. This dress is goooooorgeous and definitely deserves to be worn more than once! It's such a beauty! I have to admit that at times I buy a dress specifically for an occasion and forget to re-work it into my day to day wardrobe. I'll have to remind myself to style things differently an incorporate these pieces!

  42. The dress suits you very well and you were right about wearing it again :) my dresses usually have the same fate as yours,i wear them once to an event and then they just hang in the closet.atlantic-pacific is a wonderful blog to take inspiration from,especially when it comes to skirts and dresses :)
