Definitely one of my favorite refashions–a dress for the firm holiday party.

BEFORE:
Crazy quilted dress from my favorite thrift and vintage store ($10.80 full price).

The fact that you could SEE the beauty that maxi dress was capable of bespeaks of your insane creativity. Well done!

p.s. Love it with the gladiator heels.

Incredible! I agree with Tracy M. I love it with the heels. It almost has a Twilight look :)

$10.80 is probably less than the price of a dessert at the party.

One of these matte polishes would look awesome with that outfit and the toes peeping out. I am scared of ankle boots, thanks for showing me an option of how to wear.
