The Not-A-New Layered Dress

In my many hours of online shopping over the past year, there was one thing I kept running into. A solid dress with a little lacy underlayer peeking out from the bottom. I liked the style and even placed various versions of it in my cart a few times, but when it came to actually checking out, I always reconsidered. It just looked a little too short to wear as a dress, and a shirt – even a long one – is simply not worth more than 5 dollars for me.

Then I realized that I didn't need to buy one online anyway—I had all the makings of a dress just like that, right at home in my closet! All it would take is a tunic with an arched hem (check!) and a lacy skirt (check!).

I wore it with thigh-high brown boots and some brown jewelry to help the boots fit in better. Cute outfit from shopping my closet? Check!

Did not realize I was posing exactly like the model for the "real" dress!
