Nude to someone with my skin tone looks a whole lot different to, say, someone like Anne Hathaway but hey, when it comes down to entering “nude” in any online retailer’s search engine, we know what is coming up on our screens, don’t we?
That aside, my main goal for this outfit was to show you one of fashion’s little life hacks which I am sure you are already familiar with. You know, the one where you tuck your dress into a pair of pants or jeans and wear it as a top? That’s correct. This is not a top. I repeat. This, my friends, is a bodycon dress which I would much prefer to see being made into a top. And I plan on making that happen when I take it to my seamstress to cut the bottom half off, making it neater and less bulkier around my waist when I tuck it into my pants.
