Last August I went to a local festival that promotes local businesses and has great music. There were all of these vintage booths and I spotted a dress that I couldn't make up my mind about. It was a little odd yet fun. Would I look weird in this? How could I alter it to make it look more less prairie life and a little more modern? After asking my friend a million questions a girl walks up to me and says " I think you should get it, its actually really cute. I'll get it if you aren't." I took that as a shut up its just a dress ( and it only cost me $10..)
I bought it.
I tried it on when I got home and really didn't like the way I looked in it. There were shoulder pads (which I immediately ripped out). It felt oversized yet fit perfectly. I just felt awkward in it, but I still didn't want to give up such a great dress. When I look at it hanging up it looks fun and different.
So here's where you come in! How should I style the dress? I'm thinking to take in the sleeves a little bit and to add a fun belt ( I have a DIY tutorial coming up for that!).
I felt like I was on Little House on the Prairie.
I tucked in the sleeves a little and added this brown belt. Looks better but still, the belt isn't quite right.
So not feeling it.
This is the belt I made for it. (I'll show you how tomorrow).
Doesn't it look so cute on the hanger? Why can't you look this fun on me?!
I really want this dress to work . What do you think? Is it completely hopeless?
