New Dress A Day

Welcome to the NEW New Dress A Day!!

Hi friends, we're back!! YAY!!

It's been a while and I couldn't be happier to present the new platform to you all. The majority of 2016 has been spent working on this labor of love and it's finally time to reveal all we've been doing. You have NO idea how anxious I've been, wanting to show you everything we've been prepping and it's finally time!

You can have fun scouring the archives, there's larger imagery now (woo!!), WAY more searchability, and you can even shop the NDAD closet!

When I first started blogging in 2009, I didn't think it would last more than that first year. I got laid off and I had a project to complete to keep the good old spirits up - 365 days / $365 dollars / 365 dresses (and other assorted pieces :) ) And now approaching 8 years later (OMG, saying that out loud is NUTS!!) it was time for a refresh.

The rest of this year will finish out with what you're used to seeing - remakes, copycats, and some other fun vintage finds, but come 2017 there's going to be even more new stuff. We'll dive into that as it gets closer...

I appreciate all the support, emails, comments (the good, the bad, all of them!) and love I've gotten from you and can't wait to keep this creative space going!

Remake: Metallic Dress Teaser // En Route to NYC!

Hey friends! I'm writing this from the Delta terminal at LAX getting ready to head to NY for something super exciting. Seriously...

New Dress A Day - Metallic Dress meta is this :)

Anyway, my quick trip to the East Coast just might have me watchable on your television at some point between 7-9am Wednesday morning, on a channel run by a mouse. 🐭 I get the official "ok to share" later today and will send out a blog blast.

But, I found this fabulous dress at a neighbor's estate sale and I just couldn't resist! She sold it to me for $10 and I happily accepted the offer. (Also, it might look super fun on camera so you guys get the sneak peek!)

The gown is super thick with a gorgeous rhinestoned neck which, to be honest, was nailing it on the choking factor. Breathing was a tad bit difficult when the piece was completely zipped up.

But the colors and textured design had me immediately wanting to make this my own.

I brought the thread and needle with me, so there's probably going to be some sewing going on. And being that I'm stuck in the middle of the row, I hope my aisle and window neighbors don't mind a sleeve or two flopping about.
