Best Use of a 2-Year-Old Bridesmaid Dress – Ever

So I’m not supposed to be blogging because it’s a busy week and I said I was going to take a break from the blog because of this, BUT the minute I figured out this outfit would work I had this blog half way written in my head.

This is not a skirt. It is the bottom half of the dress I wore as the Maid-of-Honor (not “Matron” because I refuse that title) at my sisters wedding from two years ago.

That’s right. For the first time in history, the bridesmaid dress has actually been worn again.

(It’s a strapless dress that came with a black sash to go around the waste, see!).

I was scrolling through Instagram one day and came across a similarly textured outfit and immediately this popped into my brain. When this kind of inspiration strikes, I pretty much barrel through my house to get to my closet so I can try it on as fast as possible.

Sure enough, it worked as beautifully as it did in my head. And the whole thing cost less than $40 (if you don’t count the dress).

Here are the deets…

Banana Republic necklace on sale for $11 (similar here), GAP shirt on sale for $25 – here, Ann Taylor bracelet similar – here.

Looks like Katherine Heigl didn’t have to wrestle with 27 dresses, she could have turned some of them into fabulous Easter outfits ;)
