So, it looks like yet another Monday themed in a blue direction...totally not on purpose, but now I may have to begin a trend. We'll see how many more blue pieces I come across and keep you posted. But, here's the piece for today!
Big, blue dress. Not quite fitting and biggish sheer sleeves, but ridiculously awesome embroidery on the shoulders. That was what drew me in - the color was fun, but the embroidery was amazing. First thing's first, I had to take the dress in to make it fit me. Trying it on post-re-fitting, I decided that I didn't want to keep it a dress anymore, but I wanted to turn it into a fun top. I ended up cutting it about eight inches below the gathered waist, giving me close to a foot and a half of fabric leftover (hmm...thinking cap is on for something fun to do with this excess). I rolled up the sleeves to my elbows and took a strip of fabric leftover from Day 84 and tied it around my waist into a bow. Jeans, silver flats, a bun, and a headband that came from my 1987 collection (going through plastic boxes in the basement of my childhood home before my parents moved was one of the best days ever - buried treasures galore including legit friendship bracelets which will make an appearance shortly) completed this ensemble.
And, I know you want to get closer...the embroidery really is gorge!!
Lovely outfit to work in, cook some oh, so yummy pasta in, watch a terrible reality finale in, and ring in the first week of March in. Clutch.
