Would you believe me if I told you the dress that I’m wearing is actually too small for me? Didn’t think so! Turns out, all you need is a safety pin and a little creativity to MacGyver’ your way into an outfit.
I fell in love with this gorgeous white lace dress as soon as I saw it on Chicwish. Sadly, when I tried it on, it was a little too tight around my rib cage and wouldn’t completely zip! I was a bit bummed, but I didn’t let it get me down. Not wanting to let a good dress go to waste, I knew I had to channel Tim Gunn vibes and … Make. It. Work. The zipper stopped around halfway up its length, but I noticed that when I held the top two-ends together, it actually looked like it was an open-back dress. So I clipped it with a safety pin and voila — you probably wouldn’t even notice the difference had I not told you. Have you ever had to use some creative magic to make an outfit work? I’d love to hear your tips and tricks!
