I came across a total winner this weekend in my shopping excursions. Let’s say that this one is something that Blanche Devereux would most definitely wear. And for $1, I couldn’t resist. I will become a Golden Girl.
Also, the glittery bits all over the dress are actual glued clumps of glitter! So one must be careful with the taking on and off of this dress because those clumps of glitter hurt when rubbed against one’s body. Let’s just say I have a few scratches thanks so these shimmery pals.
But, I’ve got some plans for this before I wear it Saturday night!
I’ve got four words for you. This. Dress. You. Guys.
Loved the pink and white striping, but just wasn’t as into the shape or style.
It was straight 90s, yo! It was also a maternity dress, once I looked at the label. I thought a little tweaking could come to fruition to make this the perfect dress to wear during the September heat wave of Los Angeles.
I mean it’s just waiting for some TLC. TLC, I’m a-coming for you!
So this floral print though…
Honestly I think I wore something like this when I was a kid in 1992!
The colors were so fun and summery feeling. I can’t get enough of these “rainbow sherbet” colors! (PS, who else is a rainbow sherbet fan? I swear I dream about the Baskin Robbins variety at least twice a week!)
The thumbs up was me giving myself motivation that this was going to turn out AWESOME!
However, those layered pleats at the bottom just might have to say goodbye…
So this dress…
The sleeves were just a little too tight with those shoulder pads!!
…but the pattern was fab!
I think this was the “camera shot me mid-speaking” moment where I was contemplating “what am I going to do to make this something I want to wear.”
The ideas were flowing and something hit!
Loved this dress when I saw it! The pattern was fab, but those sleeves were just a little too tight.
Chic buttons lined the side of the dress which I loved and those pleats were dreamy.
It needed a little pick-me-up, so I did just that!! Check back shortly to see the full remake…
