Making something old something NEW.

SO, I got a gorgeous dress from SHEIN a few years ago. And it is one I do wear kind of often. Except when it is hot, which is ALL THE TIME here. This dress is a gorgeous shear dress that has a flowy element that oh so me and oh so pretty. But here is the thing, the sleeves drive me crazy. So much in fact that I started to not wear it since I was hot in it. And the sleeves were puffy and great for going out, but I wanted this dress more versatile. SO, I grabbed a pair of scissors and went to town. I am a massive sewing enthusiast. Have you seen my Elsa costume? Yup made that with mom’s help but I did the intricate bead and sequins work. Anyways, The dress.
maxi and tropic printThis is the dress, and yes, I love the dress. But I needed to have it more “Florida” friendly. More for me and my taste and style. Even though the dress before is MY style too. I got hot.


It is like having an all new dress! And All I did was take the damn sleeves off. Cool right? P.S. I fixed my foundation problem. Urban Decay setting spray people. The 24hr one. That is what you want.

2016-06-28_12.13.16I am going to apologize now for the OVER abundance of pictures with this dress. I am A. proud of the way it turned out and B it is too much fun to not take a million pictures of. Even if I am the one taking them.

    I love the redesign! You know, I’m not crafty at all so it never occurred to me to fix simple things that don’t work for a piece of clothing. You totally inspired me to look through my wardrobe and see what I can try my hand out. You look gorgeous! XO -Kim

    What a risk to take! The long, flowing sleeves make the dress majestic, but if it’s too hot to wear in Florida then what’s the point?! I think you made the right choice. It and you look beautiful!
