Tracy's NDAD Creation

I love my girl Tracy!  She upcycled an awesome dress for her DECA competitions that was featured back in September (click HERE for the refresher) and now there's another piece she's sharing with us.  It's totally summer apropos and since spring is offish here, why not start channeling the heat, amiright?  Check out her handiwork...

I have full faith in you, Tracy - work it girl!  Time to see if mom's mind changed!

I am in cahoots!  Such a fab top for summer and the color is perfect on you!  I love it paired with white shorts too.  Keep the remakes coming Tracy - I can't wait to see what you come up with next!  PS, you'll have to share you mom's thoughts with us...I bet she ate her words :)
