Whimsical Life- DIY Day to Night

One way to ensure no one will have on the same outfit as you is to make your outfit.   I love finding clothes and altering them just a little to create a whole new look.  The DIY project below made it possible for me to use ONE dress to create TWO different looks for day and night. A few months ago I feel in love with a coral flowy accordion maxi dress from Forever 21.  I first saw the dress last summer in a mint color and decided against it because of the way my hips looked in the dress.  When I saw the dress reappear this year I knew I had to make it work and took the dress home with me.  Unsure how I was going to pull the dress off, I decided in the worst case scenario I could cut the dress in two at the seam and wear it as two separate pieces.....and that Divadolls is just what I did! Where the top and skirt was joined together I cut above the elastic part in the waist. Viola!  Now I had a cute half top and flowy skirt that became unique statement pieces I adore.

    Very cute and creative! I've seen this dress a few times but passed it up because I knew it would be too long :(. I love that color!

    Your hair is gorgeous and so are you! I love what you did with the dress to make it unique. The day time look is crazy! What type of shirt is that that you got from F21? I've never seen it online before, neither the dress. Very creative all around.
