Good to be Back
So, confession. I did go shopping over the 30 days. I went thrift shopping and I bought 4 bags and 4 dresses. All the dresses were from like decades ago (shoulder pads, anyone?) and all of them except for one needed fixing. This was one of them! I'm so grateful for sewing class because now I know how to alter things and make them cuter. I also get a lot of great ideas from Cotton and Curls. I wish I had remembered to take a before picture, but I just got so excited to fix it that I didn't remember until I was almost done. This dress started out as being way bigger and longer, so I took it in about an inch and a half on each side and then hemmed it up about 4 inches. It turned out so cute! And a lot of people complimented me on it and the best part was when they'd ask me where I got my dress and I got to say it came from DI. Ha and actually I realized that everything in this outfit except for the shoes and necklace are thrifted! And the shoes are from Walmart, which cutting close to being thrifted (kidding! You can find some good stuff at Walmart sometimes..obviously, since I have the shoes!). But ya, great outfit for super cheap. Love it!
It feels good to wear whatever I want again. Oh yeah. :)
