At first glance, you might be thinking, “what on earth are you doing purchasing that dress with a big, ole bite taken out of the bottom?” It’s totally shredded, I know.
And there are holes on top of the completely shredded skirt!
But check out that glorious beaded waist! That’s worth the price of admission alone! (Oh PS, price of admission today, just a buck!)
The skirt just wasn’t happening, so I began my detachment by removing the zipper that was sewn in place from about the waist to a little lower than the tush area!
With the zipper gone, I began my trim right below the beaded area. I meticulously followed the seam…
…until I was left with two pieces – a torn up skirt…
…and a gorgeous buttoned top! I loved the buttons that lined the back of the piece, so I opted to make this a cover up!
I put on my fave American Apparel tie dyed top with a magenta Hanky Panky lace cami underneath (the arm holes come close to hitting my waist, so the lace was a lovely cover up) and my skinny jeans to pair with my new top that I turned into a little cover up.
Nothing like some front to back action!
I love the subtle seafoam-y green color
…however I couldn’t help to think that a little dye job could make this bolder. What do you think? It was the perfect outfit to do some errand/event hopping in! Got to meet up to celebrate the birth of the lovely BU (who is also an amazing photog) over pie at one of my favorite downtown LA joints, The Pie Hole.
The Mexican Hot Chocolate pie is TO DIE FOR – I couldn’t contain my happiness with each bite taken.
Of course I followed pie with dinner, you know, like you do. This is the way I like to roll. Dessert first whenever possible!
