|Following Brande's stylish and professional advice, I hemmed the dress to above my knee. Instead of wearing a belt, I used the cut-off fabric to make a wide sash. The dress went from 70's to modern feminine swing. I could wear this to any type of event! |
Remember when I was contemplating switching to a white halter dress and you (my lovely readers), said "Noooooo -stick with the bright color". You were absolutely right!
Want to know a super bargain secret? This dress was op-shopped for only $0.50!!!! Yes - people, it was two quarters. The hem was $15. Now that I have a great seamstress, I am looking at vintage clothing in a whole new light. Not only is it affordable, but these pieces are unique and have already stood the test of time.
|Here is the dress prior to the alterations and paired with black accessories. Isn't it amazing what a quick hem can do? I had no idea it would make such a difference.|
|Mr. C inherited the Fedora hat I was originally going to wear. Interesting tidbit: Frank's pool is shaped like a piano.|
|Do these boys look familiar? It's Phillip Lomax from X-Factor and Matt Dusk. They had great voices and amazing energy. Gracious entertainers - and a ton of fun!|
|Yes - even in Palm Springs my sleep wear is vintage. Flowing apricot colored gown with sheer ruffled robe. What do you think? Would you wear this to bed? The ruffles were stiff and not very comfortable - but I felt glamorous in it nonetheless.|
