This is my first outfit post of 2012! I'm so happy to be posting my outfits again, it's been over 2 weeks now and I've gone into Lookbook withdrawal :( Anyways, this is one of my favorite dresses; it's one of those pieces you just have sitting in your closet going to waste because it doesn't get the wear it deserves. I originally bought it to wear at my final exhibition for the pre college art program I did during the summer! I found it in the sale section at H&M for $20. It's one of the rare dresses that actually fits me quite well in the bodice but it's really low cut unfortunately. Sadly, that was the only time I wore this dress for months. As I was going through my closet again this weekend, I started wishing that this dress had the skirt piece separate, then thought "why don't I just wear something over it?". I can't believe I didn't think of that before :P Throwing a sweater or more casual top over a fancy dress is a great way to make it wearable for the day.




On another note, this is quite random but WhatIWear, a new fashion networking site similar to Lookbook, emailed me to let me know that they featured one of my old looks in one of their videos! I'm only in it for like 0.8 seconds but I was still so flattered xD Here is the video if you want to see, you can see me at 0:14... They are giving out really nice prizes like an iPad 2 so some of you might want to check it out!

See you guys tomorrow! The weather is on my side this week :)
