I love this “skirt look” although it’s a tulle dress. I have been searching in every thrift and consignment shop for a tulle skirt. It is has been a constant on my thrift wish list for several months now.
Of course, I can easily buy this type of skirt at most retail stores, but you guys know that I am about the savings! I refuse to pay a lot of money for an item where the actual material is really quite cheap. If I could only sew, I can probably make about ten tulle skirts for about $20. Might be exaggerating there, but seriously, tulle itself is very cheap!
This weekend however, as I was going through my closet in preparation of my upcoming fashion exchange, I came across this dress that I had thrifted from Buffalo Exchange for $8.00 several months ago. I had not worn the dress yet because it is a spaghetti strap dress. I have nothing against spaghetti straps, but it’s always a hassle for me to find the right undergarments. Read between the lines there :).
However, I realized that I had my skirt look if I added a shirt over it. I paired the cream colored tulle dress with this beautiful bright blue colored shirt from Sheinside.com on clearance for $9.99. The outfit felt just right once put together. Some awesome heels and great accessories, and I had completed the perfect “skirt look” using a dress!
Have you had any luck with converting a piece? If so, please share.
