Outfit: Safari Chic

When I dressed for a night with the hubby I did not plan to look like I was ready for a safari. However, that is what I ended up look like...in a great way! ;)
Here is what I wore:

Trench Vest: Forever 21, Dress: Banana Republic, Shoes: c/o Just Fab, Bag: Nordstrom, Watch: Fossil, Chain Bracelet: House of Gemmes, Cuff: Lili Clispe (Swap w/ Kaitlyn), Ring: Love Twist, Sunnies: Prada, Lip color: Rose Blossom by Bobbi Brown
Last time I wore this dress I had to wear 6 inch heels with it. I made two decisions.
1) I plan to keep this dress as it's great quality and I really love the print. This lead me to decision #2.
2) I had 6 inches taken off the bottom so I can now wear it with flats and small wedges.
This opens up a whole world to this dress now. It went from a dress that would only be worn once a year to weddings or some sort of dressy event to a great everyday maxi that can be dressed up or down.
What do you think?
Do you ever alter dresses so you can get more use out of them?

being only 5'-2", YES, i chop my dresses all the time...it's amazing what taking a few inches off the bottom does! so worth it for the comfort. i used to hesitate cutting my good dresses, but i figured i'd rather chance it and get to wear them, then let them sit in the closet.
