I've been doing some spring cleaning and came across another piece that I shot for the book but didn't end up using! I think my face froze in that position for the whole day. (We shot like 90 before looks too!)
Hello velvety swirls of fabric!! You are not welcome in my world. Sorry 'bout that, buddy!
Out came the seam ripper...
...and off went the velvety ribbon!
I was ecstatic to have a clean shirt, with just the shimmery grey beads remaining.
The sleeves were a bit off, so I trimmed them near the shoulder seam leaving about an inch of material.
I pinned this excess material right at the shoulder seam (you can see it super well above) and stitched new arm seams in place.
Just a few tweaks to bring this shirt from before the millennium into 2013!!
I feel like such a little professional in this ensemble! The top is fitted at the waist, making it an awesome piece to wear with a higher waisted skirt or pant because it lays flat.
I just added some BCBG slingbacks, my yellow weaved clutch, and a vintage white pearlized necklace that brought out the colors in the skirt o'daisies. (That skirt was thrifted! It came with a matching short sleeved jacket and I got them both for $6!)
I smell a fun, new shirt to pair with jeans too. The subtle beadwork on the top of the piece gives it just enough flair to enhance the basic shape.
I'll style it totally different next time it's worn and feature it in a rewind post soon! Woo for a brand new staple to be (kids) incorporated into my wardrobe!!
