My sweet-sixteen dress was practically made for me, black and gold, feather bottom, open back. It was a dream dress, and as much as I would love to wear it everyday, that's clearly impractical. A great way to restyle old party dresses for everyday is to layer on top of them. The bottom of this dress looks like any other skirt, but better because its feathered. I layered a casual sweater on top of this dress, the sweater almost has a peplum to it, creating a super interesting silhouette.
Also I would like to give a big birthday shoutout to my photographer and MOMMY! Mermaid Waves would probably be a sad collection of mirror selfies without her! Happy Birthday Mom! Thanks for letting me borrow your sweater for this post.
