With the start of summer comes endless weddings and special occasions that you need to buy a formal dress for. But what do you do with the dress after the event? Here’s 4 ways to repurpose your special occasion dress that has just been sitting in your closet waiting for some love.
Love the dress but hate the color? Dresses AND shoes can be dyed to any color you want. Maybe try navy or black to make it a timeless dress that will be a staple in your wardrobe for the rest of your life.
Need to free up some space in your closet? If your gown is in good condition and less than 5 seasons old, you can donate it to Fairy Godmothers which helps high school girls with financial hardship attend prom.
Chop it off:
If your dress is floor length, try altering it to make it your new go-to cocktail dress. Or, if you love the bottom part of the dress, turn it into a skirt! Just bring it to your local tailor to make sure it looks amazing!
Turn it into something else:
Don’t intend on wearing the dress ever again and looking for some new home decor? Try turning the dress into a quilt or a pillow! It’s the best of both worlds.
Before you try any of these repurposing ideas, it’s important to make sure your dress is in pristine condition. Bring your dress into Sandy’s to get it cleaned up. Save $5 on orders of $20 or more!
