Today’s rewind outfit comes from a little over two years ago! This white and blue floral dress was one of the pieces that I shot as an option for my book, hence the full make-up in the before shot!

I scrapped the sleeves and took it in to make it a dress perfect for summer.
For my second wear, I went a totally different route!
You got a little taste of this number yesterday…
I would literally get arrested if I wore this out in public. Indecent exposure, much??
I couldn’t let that happen because I love the look of this dress so much and I must wear it out.
One easy tweak, here we come!
I absolutely LOVED this dress when I first laid eyes on it at a garage sale. The colors were fun, the crepe-y cotton was flowy and soft, but there was a pretty large issue. (I even wore a nude tank to really hit the fact home.)
This is going to need a little adjustment. I just don’t think that this would be appropriate if I wore it as is, you know :) Check back for the full post later today!
I received this piece from one of my favorite people in the world – Melissa of Shoestring Magazine - and she outdid herself.
Now if a “friend” gave you this piece as a present, I might want to rethink the friendship, however Melissa is my thrifting kindred spirit and knew this shirty-dress-kaftan would be right up my alley.
So not only did my sister from another mister give me this rockin’ ensemble…
…but also sent a Richard Simmons coffee table book in my package. This snail mail day was one for the records, because…
…Richard Simmons happens to be one of my best pals.
OK, well “best pals” probably is a bit of a stretch, but I did get my “sweatin’ to the oldies” on at his class a while back and that’s pretty close, right? So, want to see how this peachy piece turned out???
This could be my new favorite piece! Faith knocked it out of the park. Just wait until you see what this shirt looks like now!
As a brand new first time mom, I didn’t have time to scour the stores for the perfect outfit for my baby girl’s one-month pictures. I wanted something feminine but not too girly, so instead of turning to expensive outfits online, I decided to make a cheaper option for this one time wear.
I scanned my closet for ideas. I found this top which a friend had given me to wear during the pregnancy. I loved the detailed stitching.
I noticed the shirring on the back and knew it would make for an easy fit.
Just wait until you see Faith’s transformation…
