Scenic Print Dress
Purple Glass Beads: DIY
Yellow Beads, Yellow stretch bracelet, Shell Ring: Burke's Outlet
Ceramic Watch: TJMaxx
Purple Suede Wedges, Hue Tights: Dillards (both clearance)
I couldn't believe my luck when I found this dress while thrifting. I tried it on and it was a smidgen too tight in the hips. I checked the seams and saw that there was a little room to let it out. I checked the price, it was $6, but then I found out it was half off! For $3 I took the chance that I could make it fit.
I let it out as much as I could, but I still wasn't comfortable. I waited...in the last two weeks I finally got rid of some baby weight that was still hanging on. I tried it on again and wahoo! It fits! :o)
Now I"m still on the fence if I should remove the sleeves or not. What do you guys think? I could leave it as is, or I could make it a racer back.
PS: Please forgive the not so great photos. Yellow foam all around, low light, camera problems, bleh!
PS (again): I was super pleased that this dress goes perfectly with Share-In-Style: Summer, so of course Linking up there! :o)
