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 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?
