ebudget: turning one into three

I'm so excited about this dress I bought this weekend that I have to post it ASAP for my new EBudget column.

I went to Kohl's to check out Lauren Conrad's new line and started with the Clearance rack, as usual. I know every Kohl's is different, but the one here in College Station always has a PACKED Clearance rack. Whatever you do- Never go to a store without checking out the super sales!

There were a few things of LC's there, but for some reason this rather fancy dress from Apt. 9 had me pumped.

It's longer than I normally buy. It's much fancier than what I normally wear, but I have a fancy event coming up... The best part: Once I got into the fitting room to try it on, I realized I could totally wear it inside out!

The dress is not supposed to be worn inside out. It has pockets in the front, and the zipper is not reversible, but the lining is clean, and with a few quick and simple alterations/adjustments, it becomes a little black dress!
THEN! If I really want to get creative, with a few pins, I can make it an itsy bitsy LBD.

So BAM! I paid $17 for this dress that's definitely not cheaply made, and I could get two or three dresses out of it! And it has POCKETS!

There are a lot of things that can be worn a million different ways, so always be on the lookout for those pieces! It'd be silly to buy a bunch of things that you can really only wear one way. [I know that with a Meijer promo code you can find a variety of add-ons that will make any wardrobe have a different look.]
