STYLE - OOTD ; CROP TOP X MAXI SKIRT


Happy New Month and Happy New week! Today's OOTD is one that I am so happy and eager to share. So two weeks ago while I was multitasking ( watching the grand finale of project fame season 9 and ironing my turtle neck gown) it was the grand finale! I couldn't miss it and hey, I wasnt sure of power supply, so I make good use of light when it comes. To cut the long story short, I forgot to turn off the iron as I ran off to watch as Okiemute Ighorodje was being announced winner. Before I realized what was happening, the electric iron had taken a better part of my dress *Screams* sobs*

I was so pained, because I have won the dress HERE it fits well on me and I love turtleneck, I couldn't let go the outfit, because I loved the fitting on me. So I had to come up with something. Lucky enough,the dress got burnt at the lower part, so I decided to apply my new skill (sewing) yes! I am learning how to sew simple dresses. I cut the dress into two, discarded the part that was affected and converted the upper part into a crop top. I paired the Outfit with a Maxi Flower patterned Skirt that my Mum got for me from one of her conference trips to Abuja.
I rocked this outfit to shoot my video for #LindaIkejiMedia #Vjsearch2016.

Share with me, how will you transform a damaged dress to a reusable one?
