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…
I’ve been playing around with a bunch of fun pieces that you’ll see over the next few days!!
This one looks like something that I would have worn when I was six as my nightgown. This is like the grown-up, adult version! PS, it’s velour!!!
This one feels like I should be in Annie. You know, if Annie gets remade again and it’s all adults playing the orphaned kids?
And this might be the piéce de resistance. HELLO, too big jumpsuit!!! The before shots that go along with this one are AMAZING. Just you wait…
All coming soon to a screen near you!! Stay tuned
There’s nothing more uncomfortable than a tight neck!
I feel like I get neck-claustrophobia (yeah, that’s a word I just made up) when I wear things like this. The color was fab…
…but the dress needed a little more something added to it, you know?
Plus there were some major shoulder pads that needed to get removed.
I should stuff new pillows with all of the pads that I’ve accumulated Ready to see how this dress looks now??
I’ve unearthed a few of my boxes labeled vintage (yay!!!) and it was like Christmas all over again as I began to unpack. I’m only one extra-large Home Depot box in, and already it’s a season’s worth of remakes.
It’s also solidifying the fact that my memory isn’t serving me as well as it used to because a half of the pieces I don’t even recall purchasing Is there such a thing as “moving brain?” Because if so, I’m self-diagnosing myself with just that.
Didn’t remember this cute top…
Same goes with this 60s dress with an amazingly sick collar!! (Love me some collars.)
Totally forgot about this aqua dress…
…as well as this French polyester shirt with “bonbons” and “Paris” written all over it. Definitely not sure what my original intention was for this one, but I’m determined to make it work!
I shot a bunch of pieces before I moved, so the before looks are pretty much ready to go. Tomorrow, I’m going to turn this dress into something a little more updated!
And preferably something with some more room at the neck!
Those shoulder pads are going to get removed as well…
