I approach every article of clothing with an open mind. It’s a strategy that has worked well both in thrifting and regular shopping. If you just look at a dress as a dress then that’s all it’ll ever be. The best way to be creative with your wardrobe is to think outside the box. One of my favorite ways to do that is by wearing oversized shirts as dresses (as witnessed here). I found this sweater/shirt combo in Primark and thought it would make a great mini dress.
