Today’s remake comes from my gal Emily! She knows how to rock the before pic poses too, by the way.
Here’s the story behind my dress – I was browsing vintage dresses on Modcloth.com and Anthropologie’s website one day, lamenting over my lack of spending money, when I remembered stumbling across your blog a few months earlier. I was so inspired by your creativity and step-by-step tutorials, I decided to try making my own vintage dress for less! I found this navy blue polka-dotted dress at Goodwill for $5. Despite its frumpy factor and the fact that it was ten sizes too big (literally!) I saw the potential for a cute sleeveless summer dress with a swingy skirt.
My mother-in-law wasn’t so sure; I’m pretty sure she thought I’d lost it when I enlisted her help on the project!
Will Emily’s MIL be right, or will Emily rock out the most swingy-est, summer dress around? (PS, inside tip…put your money on the latter!)
When I was asked to take charge on the crown/tiara front for a lovely friend of mine’s bachelorette party, I immediately said yes. I mean, there’s nothing I love more than ribbon, wire, rhinestones, and silk flowers!
This crown-veil wasn’t going to be your tradish wedding white/pearly/lace-y version either, it was going to be black, sparkly, and something straight out of a Tim Burton movie….
…literally my dream veil right now!!
Today’s post is one that involves a very cool vintage dress that I didn’t have to do anything to! My lovely friends at the Randolph Street Market in Chicago sent me this piece to don to get ready for the summer as well as their monthly markets!!
If I were only in Chicago, I’d be able to hit up opening weekend on Saturday! Weekend flea markets are my fave. (For those Chicago-ians, cruise over and let me know if you scoop up any awesome goodies!)
The print was super fun…
I’m back!! Pages have been FedEx’d…
…giggles have been had, and I’m a very happy gal right now!! Looking forward to some sleep catch up this Memorial Day weekend!
Today’s piece has been one that I’ve been OBSESSED with, so I just needed to do a copycat!
Kirsten Dunst rocked this Muu Muu top on the January 2012 cover of Lucky Magazine…
…and I knew immediately that I would make my own version!
