WIWW: Green Copycat
I’ve been eyeing these dresses for a couple of months.
Just one problem–they’re all sold out.
Also, they’re around $50, which I think is a bit much for a casual dress, but I’m cheap like that.
The original plan was to sew a tank dress just like these, which is relatively easy. But I wasn’t sure that was the look I wanted. So, I made a skirt instead.
I have had the coral fabric for a month now, but hadn’t done anything with it. Still haven’t. I used the green fabric first, to see if I’d like it.
And I do!
Tank: Wal-Marts ($3.48)
Skirt: Me ($6)
Flops: Old Navy
Necklace: Gift from Reid
I have searched and searched for a black and white tank just like the grey one, but I haven’t had much luck yet; it’s been a lot harder to find than I thought.
Regardless, I’m happy with how it turned out. So happy, in fact, that I wore it to work on Monday AND again on Tuesday for a lunch date with Holly. 🙂 (If you zoom in on the picture, you’ll see spots of salsa on my new skirt thanks to Jack.)
