Maybe I was supposed to be born in the fifties, because the mere sight of a full skirt makes me weak in the knees. I bought this (dress worn as) skirt in December because it screamed holiday party dress, and to honest, I figured it would really only serve that purpose. But that's okay every year around the holiday's I could pull it out, twirl at a few parties, and it would totally be worth the money. Until, I decided that it could be worn as a skirt. And voila! I'm able to maximize my wardrobe and decrease the cost per wear. How did I do it? This trick works best for strapless dresses, but you fold the top part under and zip up the dress as much as it will go. Sometimes you need to add a safety pin to ensure that the zipper won't roll down. It's easy to do and stays put all day.
