Two things you need to know about this dress:

1. It originally looked like this

2. I turned it into more of a sheath dress by removing the elastic from the waist and gave it a higher neckline by wearing it backward.

Yes, this is about a DIY as I get. And why did I go to all that trouble? Because I wanted to recreate today’s Inspiration Monday look.

White jacket? Yep, I got that. Animal print sheath dress? Well, kind of. I never liked the original waistband of my dress all that much so this gave me the perfect excuse to see if I could alter it. And pairing it with this jacket gave me a new way to wear each item!

By the way, this is the last week of the Take One, Pass It On challenge and I’ll be participating today and tomorrow. Wednesday I’m planning on a review of the boots I ordered from Sole Society and then I’m taking Thursday and Friday off to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday.
