It just didn't excite me, but with a few changes, it'll pull a 180!!
First off, the pads!!
You know the drill...they got taken out!
I hit the sleeves next. It was gloriously hot today and I will not be wearing cuffs at my wrist. I trimmed both sleeves off...
...and pinned them in place.
I hit the neckline next. I cut a triangle out of the front and back of the dress as I wanted a V to be created on the front and back of the piece.
With the neck trimmed, I pinned it down...
...and began to sew! After tweaking the neck and the hem (I shortened the length about four inches)...
..I left a small opening in the seam of the sleeves because I'm going to add some elastic to the ends to make them stretchy and more fitted against my arms.
I weaved the elastic in one end and out the other...
...stitched the ends together...
...then stitched the seam opening shut!
My dress is complete!! I paired my eBayed Michael Kors wedges along with a black Mary Green camisole underneath the piece to finish the look.
I met some of my favorite friends (and fellow NYers!) at Yogurtland to cool off because LA was feeling the heat today!!
Pecan salted caramel...check. I didn't even hit the toppings tonight, people. That's serious business because that doesn't ever happen. I usually go a little crazy with the Oreos/Crumbled Butterfinger/Reese's trifecta but took it easy this evening because I just wanted the cold yumminess.
Mission: Cool Off, a total success.
Happy Friday friends - stay cool and stay hydrated!!
