reuse that xmas party dress.

I was asked by George at Asda to do a really interesting style post that I thought could be really useful to people so I jumped at the chance.

I was asked to take a dress that I would wear to a Christmas party and then restyle the dress so it was suitable for something else. I wear a size 32 and I didn’t find dresses in my size that I would wear to a party so I checked the size down, then the size down again, and again etc til I found a gorgeous dress in a SIZE 24!!! that I would wear to a party. Now I know my body very well and I have a good idea of what I will and wont be able to get on. I thought the size 24 was going to be a push but I didn’t want to do the post unless it was something that I would actually wear.

What it was and what it became:IMG_20151223_151003_resized

The fit of the dress on its own may not be for everybody but there are certain places I would definitely wear it on its own (and plan to) but I love that the dress is tight enough that it is completely comfortable worn with the skirt and doesn’t feel like you have a whole dress on underneath.

I chose to restyle the dress to make it suitable work attire and I think I did a pretty good job. I was very happy with the second look and will definitely be wearing it all together again.

I was able to create the second look with the blazer, the shoes and the bag all being George at Asda pieces.

I’m going to leave you  with a couple of pictures of the work wear look and links to all the items.

  1. Clever – very clever! I have a skater dress that is far too short for work but I love the neckline so I frequently wear it beneath a 50s full skirt – great minds think alike?

  2. Very cute outfit and I love the dress on it’s own for a party – very hot! More importantly ,though your face is FLAWLESS! Wish I could fly you here to Cali to do mine, LOL! Great post doll!

  3. This top is beautiful! I love the lines – while it is bohemian, it also looks classic and simple. I think it looks fabulous on you – shoes or no shoes on the print. I wouldn’t even have seen that if you hadn’t mentioned it!
