When I first received this dress I wasn’t too keen on the way it hit me. I wasn’t quite sure exactly what it was that I didn’t like until I realized I wasn’t feeling the sleeves. So, I took my handy dandy scissors and chopped them off. Fortunately, it worked out perfectly and turned the dress into exactly what I wanted. Lately, the thought of altering my clothing has been pretty exciting to me. I’m eager to learn how to sew and make my own clothing but for now chopping off sleeves and collars will have to do. Its sort of my ultimate dream to one day own my own Etsy shop.
I just had some errands to run today so I wasn’t keen on getting too dolled up but I took the opportunity to finally pull together an outfit I had been wanting to try. I really love the mix of patterns and the retro feel of this outfit. I happened to pick up the perfect pair of sandals from Forever 21 this weekend which really helped tie the entire outfit together, in my opinion.
