Margaret’s NDAD Creation

Aug 2, 2014 | 11 Comments

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)

This lovely keyhole dress was a present from a pal of mine who was cleaning out her closet before moving.

New Dress A Day - Blue Polyester Dress


The shape was fun and flowy…

Swing dress!

…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…
