This dress has been sitting in my closet for a good year. I really liked it when I saw it on Loft's website, but I didn't like the price tag very much so I didn't buy it. When I saw it on ebay several months later for a much more agreeable price, I snagged it. That was before I started blogging and in those days I thought that if something didn't fit perfectly right off the rack that meant that you shouldn't buy/wear it. When I tried this dress on, it was too loose and the silky fabric clung to my skin in a really unfortunate way. These issues made me hang the dress in the back of my closet and decide to resell it at some later date when I had the time and inclination to post it on ebay or set up a yard sale.
Fast forward to yesterday when I pulled this dress back out and decided to make it work. I wore a slip underneath it which fixed the clinging issue and I added a belt which gave the dress a more flattering shape. The top was a little too low cut for a Friday morning class so I added a cami underneath and voila. My previously unwearable dress made its way onto My Fashion Confession as part of a quick, comfortable, and cute outfit that was perfect for a chilly morning spent in class.
