"I've recently become infatuated with shopgoodwill.com. I bought this red and white striped dress thinking it looked just like something from an old movie with horse races and ice cream parlors galore! I absolutely loved the way the arms fell and cuffed around the wrists."
I promise to keep those cuffs intact Brook :)
The way the buttons were set, it felt super Dick Tracy to me.
So, yeah, I began to take a few of them off!
After the buttons were removed, I began to tackle the collar. Seam ripper began to help the removal process.
The red came off and I then tucked in the collar to make it more of a V neck. I pinned it down and handled the length next.
Went a little shorter next! Trimmed about eight inches off...
..and took it all to the machine!
I decided to do a little pairing of the dress with nudes today - I took my nude pair of Aerosoles heels and a long cardi from Target and had my ensemble ready for the office during the day. It was chilly and I didn't wear tights, so this sweater stayed on all day.
Sans sweater, the dress looked a little something like this.
I got to hang with my pallies again as I met up with their mom for a little belated birthday gathering....
..OB's cape and my dress matched, AB sang a little bit of 'Tomorrow' for me and we stayed up a bit past the normal bedtime :) I'm always about breaking the rules just a smidge!!
Thanks for the piece Brook! I hope it still keeps its vintage look for you but has a bit of that modern twist!!
