Long skirt, an eyelet bib, a big collar - a mini-disaster trifecta!!
I had to put my thinking cap on and try to figure out how to really make it work!!
I began with taking out that eyelet!! That was a no-brainer.
With the bib removed...
The collar got taken off next (woo!) and then the sleeves followed suit!
The raw and open edges got pinned down...
...and stitched in place!!
We're getting closer! I had to adjust the sizing, so I took in the sides and hiked up the skirt!
Post-sew, my dress was complete! Off to see Florence + The Machine at the Hollywood Bowl...my last show of the summer. OK, technically it's not summer anymore, however the hot weather has been fooling me and I'm just not really ready to say goodbye yet!
I got to wear my boots again!! It did get chillier later on, so I brought my denim jacket and a little sweater along with, but the lack of sleeves worked wonders until the sun set!
With my new dress, I gave my nails a vampy coat of polish that was totally Florence-worthy.
I couldn't have been more obsessed with her ridiculous black dress. Two words. In. Love.
I got to hang with friends, snack on sea salt chocolate and carné asada burritos (great combo, eh?)...
...and rock out. Florence was running all over the stage and spinning around in circles that as soon as I got home I started pirouetting. Not even joking. I spun when I got home from the comforts of my living room.
The perfect night to just chill out, during a super hectic time. (PS, how is the book coming out in just a week?? PPS, you still have time to pre-order and get goodies!)
I ran into more friends and took more pictures, which made for a most fantastic way to start the week.
I just loved the green/navy mix and felt like a good pat on the back was due for this one. I got complimented waiting on line in the bathroom which is always a seal of approval. The commenting, I mean...not necessarily the bathroom line waiting :)
