A while back, my school held it’s third annual Masquerade, and much like the second annual Masquerade, I forgot the mask. However, I got super dressed up and had an amazing time anyway.

I didn’t need to purchase a new dress because I searched the back of my closet and unearth an old friend. Spice up an old formal dress with a new statement necklace, a new shade of lipstick and BAM! you are all set to go out in style. Who said formal occasions have to be on expensive? I personally had been dying to wear this dress to another occasion. Here’s a flashback to three years ago:

Woah, talk about a flashback. I wore this dress to my senior prom and I am still in love with it. (Though I can do without the purple hair and accessories)


To make the dress feel like new send it out to be cleaned, put on some higher heels, and avoid doing your hair and makeup in a similar way. This will make the look stand out from the dress’ first formal event.


And my friends were looking pretty fly too, they even let me borrow their mask.






So take out those old prom, bridesmaids or formal gowns for your next formal event. And get to dancing!
