Neon Highlighter

I got this geo-printed dress from Forever21 a year ago only because I thought the print was pretty cool. Then I realized that I barely ever wore the dress because of it's strange-ish shape. The top was too loose, and I didn't like the elastic in the middle. Plus, I rarely wear dresses.

So the other day, I decided on a whim to cut it in half to make a cropped shirt and a skirt. I'm quite happy with the way it turned out, and I'm much more likely to wear these two items now. Although, I'm tempted to go scissor-happy and start cutting everything in half. It's sort of like going tweezer-happy where suddenly, you realize you don't have eyebrows anymore, and you sit there thinking "what have I done?"

This reminds me of the
new collections in H&M,
which are also in the
neon mood!

I love what you've done with this dress! I had a similar dilemma with a dress I bought in a hurry. Once I turned it into a skirt I loved it so much more. I plan on turing the top into a shirt also. That's so cool that you did the same thing. ;)

Super score on those shoes too. Love them! Can't wait to see how you rock them. :)

Your blog and DIYs are pretty awesome. Want to follow each other? It's always nice to find other DIY fashion bloggers.
