Two Fun Ways to Wear a Striped T-Shirt Dress ( the same day)

two ways to style a t-shirt dress
It is amazing how a simple change can totally create a new look, one striped t-shirt dress shortened changes the look completely.

I found this amazing t-Shirt dress at Forever 21 last week in the clearance section, it was $13.99 with an additional 50% off so you can be sure it was not going back on the rack.  At the time I really wasn’t sure how I would wear it or even where I would wear it but for $7.00 it was coming home.
Well I got the dress home and then immediately started worrying over how I would actually wear this.. hmmm clingy t-shirt with stripes on a 50+ year old.. would it be unflattering?  I played around and thought if I pulled it up it would look more like a skirt and top… hmmm genius I thought. Pair it with a contrasting pattern cardigan ( Target) tights and wedge boots and it is a perfect outfit for work.

Then I thought, really I wounder how this looks the way it is supposed to be worn, so I pulled it down, snapped some shots and when I downloaded them later I thought, this looks way better then I expected.  So one quick pull up or down and I change the outfit, which is your preferred look?
