A few weeks ago, the Sézane Sarah dress I had my eye on on Poshmark went on sale for $45. This dress was originally $180 and now it was within my grasp for $45 so I took it as a sign to buy it secondhand. Once I got it, I realized that in order to get more mileage out of this dress is to figure out a way to make a white lace dress work in the winter. This outfit is my attempt at doing so.



wearing a dress as a top

I think the most classic way to restyle a dress is to wear it as a top. Now, this depends on how the bottom of the dress looks but for a plain shift dress like mine, a fit and flare skirt is a great way to go. The back of this dress is quite open and I wanted to feature that in this outfit by not wearing a coat (by the way, the day we took these photos, the temperature was around 35 degrees Fahrenheit. The things I do for this blog…). The delicate lace and feminine silhouette is perfect for Christmas parties, as long as you pair it with a festive color. I can’t wait to wear this dress on its own in the Spring and Summer though. It’s seriously one of my favorite purchases from Sézane (and believe me, I love everything I do own from Sézane a LOT). If you have any shift dresses that you love, try wearing it with a longer skirt! You’d be surprised how this trick can really bring new life into your closet!



Jewel tones

I got this skirt from Forever 21 about three years ago. I can’t believe it held up! I stopped purchasing from Forever 21 since January of this year but as I’m trying not to contribute textile waste, I’ve kept it…for now. There has been a bit of pilling but nothing that stands out too much. I was really drawn to the color and I’ve reached for it every Fall and Winter. I love jewel tones when the weather gets colder. It’s a great way to add color to your wardrobe when the colors start to fade from nature.
