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.
