This dress was scored in Charlotte, when I was home for Christmas with my family! I loved the rhinestone brooch in the center of the dress, the material…
…and the fact that it was a J. Peterman dress!! I didn’t even know J. Peterman was real!!
I thought it was fictional and solely from Seinfeld! I loved George’s hat from the J. Peterman catalog…
…and I loved John O’Hurley playing J. Peterman!!
What I did not love about this dress…
Time to turn this into something fabulous!!
I took the Dark Green dye, some Morton Salt and added these to the washing machine dye bath with the dress (along with a few other pieces that needed a face lift). Post wash, my pieces were complete!!
I let the dress air dry and this is how it turned out…
Gorge color and NO MORE SPOT!!! I mean, how fantastic is that?
I paired the dress with my Goodwill’ed embroidered purse I got for $3 and had fun twirling it around my arm while the photo was being shot!
I had a gallery opening to attend and thought this dress would be perfect paired with some black tights and my black brogues!!
I also had on my four leaf clover bracelet and some other assorted silver rings to bring out the silver gems on the dress.
It’s so incredible to see a little color adjustment giving a garment a complete 180!!
And I leave you with my version of the Elaine dance from Seinfeld. I tried to do her thumbs and kicks, however the thumbs didn’t turn out as great as I’d like.
Instead, I’ll leave you with a clip of Elaine doing Elaine!
Happy Monday, friends!
