LBD by Day

I bought this little black cocktail dress for last New Year's Eve, and it's been collecting dust ever since. In an attempt to make it more casual and daytime-friendly, I layered it over a plain white tee and added a scarf, belt, bangles and ankle boots. Do you think it works, or does the eveningwear stick out like a sore thumb?
Dress: F21, $? // Shirt: Love Rocks, TJMaxx, $10 // Scarf: Vintage, from Grandma // Belt: Vintage, thrifted, $1 // Bangles: Old Navy, $1 each // Boots: Urban Outfitters, $25

i think i would have not worn the scarf, but that's just because i'm fickle with accessories!

I think you shouldn't have worn the scarf and maybe a pair of high heels instead of the ankle boots. But, I love the dress over the shirt!

It looks great!
I have a similar dress and never would have dreamed of wearing it during the day. Now I'm tempted!

I think it works.

Very nice. Great way to wear an evening dress. I may have to punk this idea as I have a lot of eveningwear that sits forlorn between galas...and since I have zero galas...

I kinda LOVE it! I just ordered a bridesmaid dress that looks really similar to your dress and am already trying to come up with ways to wear it after the wedding. Might have to try your version!
