I’m in love with the fabric on this dress…
…and am furiously working on it to have ready to post this evening!!
Yellow, black, and white could be the new color combo of my dreams!! Check back soon for the full remake!
The amazingly crafty Margaret came up with the PERFECT dress to tie into the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie that opened this weekend. I’m super excited about the film so when I saw her creation I almost passed out because of the awesomeness!! This is something that would work on so many mediums as well, so I think you’re all going to enjoy
There’s nothing quite like making a special outfit for a special occasion – and this one was a crazy good time. I speak, of course, of my new Guardians of the Galaxy-inspired little black dress.
I had a plain old black cotton dress that I transformed into this awesomeness with a few easy steps. (This is a piece that can be easily thrifted or picked up on the cheap! I love this Jennifer Lopez for Kohl’s black shift dress that’s on sale for $16)
See how Margaret transformed this shift dress into something galaxy-tastic!!
The rewind piece for today first ran a little over two years ago and lovely reader Saige donated this two piecer! The colors of this piece still make me happy!

The Before Look:
Nothing like a two piecer!
I turned the skirt into a strapless dress for my first wear!
The After Look:
See how I styled it for the second time around…
This lovely keyhole dress was a present from a pal of mine who was cleaning out her closet before moving.
The shape was fun and flowy…
…but there were dark spots on the top portion that wouldn’t come out. (I tried everything from washing to Tide penning, but alas…the spots didn’t go anywhere.)
Since the spots weren’t going anywhere…
…I had adjust my plans. When things won’t move, cover them up!
