O.k. I hope you’ve had your coffee regular today! You’re going to need that little extra focus to follow along! This is a trick I learned in high school, to maximize my minimal wardrobe and much more minimal teenage cash flow (made from the part-time job)! It’s amazing what you learned from High School fashion!!! Creativity is a good thing at any age, right? If you’re on a tight budget and need a fancier skirt, opt for a sequin tank and use it as a skirt? This method can also be done with a dress, as well. Dresses can also be used as shirts if you wear a skirt over it, kinda like a slip. It’s less expensive. You already know that, I want to dress well and fun, but want to do it on a budget. So here’s how to do it (you use this method to turn a dress into a skirt too. Here goes:
1. Turn tank (or dress) inside out. Hold it out in front of you. The inside back side should be facing you.
2. Step into it. Yes. I know. It’s inside out, upside down! If it’s a tank you can even put your legs through the arm holes, if not, leave it.
3. Now you’re standing there with the bottom (hem) of the shirt up under your arms. Hold it in place with your arms and belt it at the waist with a thin, low profile, narrow belt.
4. Pull the bottom of the tank down over the belt, which will turn the tank right side out. You can either belt it again on top, or just leave it.
Even though there are no sequins on the back of this skirt, ummmm, I mean shirt, that’s actually an asset, because there are no sequins to break and snag when you sit down.
Hope this gives you another option for your holiday dressing!
Keep your eyes open! Sometimes things are not as they appear!
The other deception is the necklace is really a bracelet, with a short necklace chain hooked to it to make it into a statement necklace!
