Week 46: Carine

I got this beige-ish dress from Carine - she sent a little package my way with this silk frock in it that is a Liz Claiborne creation circa 1990, perhaps? Week 46: Carine - Before

The best part about the dress was the back of it!  Check it out...

Week 46: Carine - Before (From Behind!)

This Liz Claiborne number won't need much help to get it looking fabulous...

The back!

The shoulder pads came out first...

Pad snipping!

...that were a lovely rectangle shape!

Le Pads!!

I played around with the dress and turned it around!!  It was a bit big, but instead of taking it in I just cinched it at the waist with a thick black belt.  I didn't plan to not have to get the sewing machine out today, but I was happy!!

Week 46: Carine - After

The back of the dress was perfect with the buttons going down it that I felt it had to be shown in the front.  I rolled the sleeves up, paired it with black boots and had my outfit ready to go.


Carine, merci for the awesome piece!!  Woo hoo for a little back to front switcheroo!!
