Making Your Clothes Work for You

I love this dress.  I love it so much I looked past the fact that it didn't work for my body type and I bought it anyways.  It was too good of a deal to pass up.  Then I saw myself wearing it in photos in two separate occasions...and I looked terrible.  I hate wasted outfits.  So I thought I would try something out.  I decided to make the dress work for me.

I partnered my dress with a short sleeved cardigan and cinched my waist with a belt.  I needed a solid color to break up the pattern that just was not working for my body.  Enter in flattering outfit.

I do not recommend buying items that don't work for your body in hopes of making it work.  But perhaps you are like me and have a few impulse buys that you already ripped the tags off of and threw away the receipt.  If that is the case, give it a second chance.  Fall is time for layering and I bet with a little creativity you could make it work!

Dress: Target clearance // Sweater: thrift // Belt: Charlotte Russe // Shoes: Target clearance
