Today's rewind outfit comes from a little over two years ago! This white and blue floral dress was one of the pieces that I shot as an option for my book, hence the full make-up in the before shot!

I scrapped the sleeves and took it in to make it a dress perfect for summer.
For my second wear, I went a totally different route!
Wanting to make the pleats more front and center, I folded under the top portion of the dress and crafted it into a top!
To get it form fitted - and to avoid the top from falling down - I took a vintage bow pin, gathered the portion of loose fabric at the new top of the piece, and cinched it!
I wore this piece to the Dodgers game, so I had to add some blue Dodgers nails too!
Oh, and it's really not a sporting event without cotton candy. Guilty pleasure, check!
We had some fabulous seats, so being that we were so close to the players, I couldn't resist a little photo hijinks! Lots of head scratching and hair fixing went on with my pointer finger and the players in front of us.
We even got some winks from Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig. With my hat on, this new top was just the piece to help root on the Dodgers!
It's funny how the second wear turned out - I was planning on doing some actual cutting and stitching, but when I tested out tucking the top of the dress under, it totally changed the game plan!
One biggish dress turned two completely different looks, two years apart!!
I wonder what wear three will look like???
