WIW Beige, Brown, and Gold

I got this dress as a hand-me-down (I know…that word is getting old…do I even buy any of my own clothes?).
But I didn't like it at all.
It fit so awkwardly.


It had two of those tie belts. The first went through those loops at the top.
So ugly.
The second went right around my hips.
So ugly.
So I took out the neckline tie, and I cut off those belt loops and tied one around my waist.
Voila!
It's now one of my favorite dresses.
And it was free. Even better.




So what's your best "upgrade" on an outfit?
Any tips on making this one even better?
Love your ideas!!

Nicely done! I do that all the time on dresses where they have belt loops, because they never fall on my actual waist. It always helps.
