I feel like I’m having my lace stage at the moment. I’ve gotten my hands on a bunch of lacy pieces recently that are making me vurry, vurry happy. This one might just take the cake!
I mean, it’s all lace!! I’m not into the excessive collar and it obviously needs something to be worn underneath…
…however I’ve got a serious crush on it.
I’m always a sucker for sequins, so this dress literally jumped into my hands! (OK, not literally, but you catch my drift…)
The colors were awesome, but I just couldn’t wear this dress as is – even the amount of pattern/sequin/beaded trim is a little too much for me!
I’m going to work some magic to make this something totally wearable!!
So I featured Marissa just last month when she made a fab peplum top/skirt out of an old pink and white polka dotted dress (click here for a refresher) and we’re seeing her again because this remake is tied into Mother’s Day!
My mother, sister, and I were all able to enjoy Mother’s Day together, just the three of us, which hardly ever happens any more. We spent the whole day doing girly things, like shopping and crafting! While at Goodwill I found this dress with a vibrant floral print and great skirt detail. However, it was a little too busy and a little too roomy in the top for my taste. I saw a lot of potential in the bottom portion of the dress…
…so I decided to buy it for a re-do!
Let’s see what Marissa makes from this dress!
I love me some royal blue!
This dress totally stuck out not only because of the color, but because of the amazing eyelet as well.
It was just a smidge too large…
…and the elastic was completely worn out at the waist.
That isn’t going to stop me from turning this into a new summer staple!
