When I was in Florida for Christmas and New Year's, my mom, sister and I went shopping. I had been so focussed on Christmas that I hadn't gotten a New Years Eve dress. I found one I kind of liked at Macy's for $17! I figured I would just alter it to make it less frumpy and a little more fun. A really easy fix for a lot of frumpy dresses is just shortening the hem! I also took off this cheesy sparky attachment at the neckline and re-shaped it. All in all, it maybe took me an hour. Mind you, if I had known I was getting proposed to, I would have put a little more effort and probably spent more than $17 haha. If you are more busty, I recommend belting the dress to give it more shape. I originally did that but my brother's girlfriend suggested leaving it as a sheath dress so I decided to go for it. I was crazy comfortable the whole night!
I took off the sparkly thing:
And decided to shape the neckline into a 'V'.
Done! Easy peasy!
