{Old To New} Layering Leather & Lace

I wore this outfit last week to speak on the Simply Stylist panel. It was just a few hours before the event, and I was having one of those “OMG..i have nothing to wear” moments. In the midst of my panic attack, I pulled out this lace dress and sighed, “If  no one would notice, I would totally  wear this dress again.” And that’s when a lightbulb went off!  (Don’t you love it when you solve your own problems??) What if I reworked this dress and layered this circle skirt over it?

Wore this dress previously HERE & HERE

The problem I usually run into when layering a skirt over a dress is the bulkiness and weight that comes along with it. The Tip is to make sure your bottom layer, in this case my lace dress, is lightweight. While the top layer, in my case the circle skirt, already comes with some volume…giving you room to play with layers.

And surpsingly enough no one noticed that I actually reworked an old dress to create a whole new outfit! In fact most people thought I was wearing a one piece dress, and was surprised when I told them that I had a dress layered under the skirt! Also having the right accessories such as my rockstud leopard pumps + Butterfly clutch can completely transform a look! And the right belt will always bring the look together.

I challenge you guys to go into your closet and see what you can transform this week! I promise, it’s quite liberating!

Hope you are all having a beautiful week so far!
