Catch of the Day, my favourite op shop in Blacktown, is where I found the top-turned-dress I wore for my 21st birthday.
After cutting from the top of the sleeves and tapering the sides, this is what became of the gold mesh top:
Though I am really petite, the dress did turn out shorter than expected. I compensated and wore a black mini skirt underneath it, teamed with black thigh high socks and dark brown knee-high boots. Who would've guessed the dress cost me less than $10? :)
