We've got another winner here!!
Look at that collar o'lace!
It's kinda cowboy which I dig mixed with some SERIOUS cuff action!
PS the price tag is still on the dress!! This puppy was a whopping $10.
I'm not going to wear this dress as is, but there is some serious potential.
I had to start with that trusty bottle of dye! I decided to go with Violet just because I knew the lace would really pop once color was added. I removed the bottom panel of the dress, created a new hem, and went ham on the sleeves and chopped them off!
The bow was sweet, but ultimately I took it off. (We'll see where we can use this again!) I had other belting thoughts in mind to make this dress a bit more modern!
It's new dress time!
I ended up pairing the dress with a vintage gold belt that gave the dress a bit more of a modern/fun vibe. The dress feels super feminine and the addition of the hammered metal belt gives a little more edge!
But how pretty does that lace look!
I LOVE the bold violet color that really makes the top portion stand out.
I'm loving this side by side because the new dress looks night and day different than where it started. I hope whoever got married in this dress is happy with the new results!
28 days til I do!
