Oscar DIY: Lady Bird Copycat

When I saw this I knew one of the MANY fab vintage-y looks would get a second life through my eyes!

But let's be honest...this film really had me when Lady Bird and her mama hit up this spot. Come. On. 


I loved this lace look on Saoirse Ronan and knew this would be the piece to get some DIY lovin!

I had to start with the dress...
