Giving Old Pieces New Life


So today I decided to put a new spin on the traditional Little Black Dress. A few year ago, I made a body-con, ankle length turtle neck dress for a formal dinner that I attended. Since that dinner, the dress had literally been sitting in my closet for what felt like ages. One thing I love most about making my own clothing, is that you always have the option of bringing old pieces back to life.  With the help of scissors and my nifty sewing machine, I was able to successfully transform my fall maxi into a body-con mini dress. The addition of the cutout shoulders also gave it a little more spice. Paired with olive sock booties and a tribal print cap, the concept of the LBD took on a new life.

What are some of your favorite ways to give old wardrobe pieces new life?

Love and Light,
