I showed you guys last week a pair of Anthropologie sandals that I was obsessed with:
Inspired by these sandals, I wanted to make a version of my own! I loved the red color, so I snagged some raffia at Joann’s along with a pair of Old Navy sandals (this Old Navy pair could totally work as well) to get the project going!
The key to matching the Anthropologie sandal is getting a pair with a strap down the center, so T-strap sandals would work wonders. But, any other strappy version would work as well as long as you’ve got spots to put down your raffia pompoms in whatever design you’d like.
Adrienne’s piece for today is one of my faves! She used one of my go-to methods for when a vintage dress is just a little too bold or the pattern is super overwhelming. You can simplify and make it rock with just one easy step. Check out Adrienne’s piece…
I have been reading your blog for some time now, after I discovered (and bought) the book! I have always been an aspiring DIYer, but didn’t really know how to get started. Your book and blog have given me a lot of inspiration and ideas, so when some friends and I decided to go out thrifting, I dared them to find me something awful so I could make it into something wearable. This dress is the one we all agreed on.
It was a silk faux wrap dress, and was about 5 sizes too large! I actually loved the fact that it was silk, and the pattern, though, a bit VIVID, was too much for me for a whole dress.
You saw this dress last week…
…when I reached out your way to help me pick out what color to dye the top of it!
Those appliqué/pockets were the best!!
And by best, I mean had to go!! The votes were tallied and the winning color was coral!!
See how the whole piece looks now!
Woo!! Votes have been tallied and the color has been picked!!
Thanks to everyone who submitted their picks. I like having you choose which route to take! I’m a total Libra and can’t make a decision to save my life, so having other people choose for me is always appreciated Can y’all help out with dinner suggestions while we’re at it??
