22 March 2010









Believe it or not, but two days ago this dress came down to my
ankles. I went on a major, major thrifting trip and found
about ten things that I am going to hem, like this dress right
here. I guess my inner (somewhat of a) seamstress is
going to have to pour out of me to mend these garments!
I suppose look forward to a few posts dedicated to my new finds.
As hard as it was, I strayed away from sweaters and focused
on finding those old summer clothes.

wearing: thrifted bag & dress; UO tights; H&M wedges

Ah I love that dress. I wore a skirt to uni today that I'd thrifted and altered so that like yours, it wasn't ankle length and I got so many nice compliments! I definitely think that thrifted buys are wonderful things.

S.Elisabeth said...

WOW! Nice job, that dress is so adorable now!! And love the pairing with polka dot tights.
And aw! Personally i'm a fan of escaping sweaters and other winter needs!

ana b. said...

This flippy dress is so fantastic and love the neckline. Your thrifting finds are so inspiring.

Nathalie Maggiori said...

This dress is really too lovely!

I love everything about this dress and tights combo. It's sweet and sophisticated at the same time.

It also reminds me that it's getting warm enough here to get textured tights and I have about three pairs and they're all black. No good. No good.

You're so adorable despite your sophistication. I want to transform you into a doll and take you home Stateside.

XOXs,
Maeko, thereafterish.

I have some hemming to do myself with some stuff I brought over from my grandma :)

Danielle said...

I know what you mean, sometimes it's so hard to look for summer clothes, when you see loads of cool winter clothes..

Ljubica said...

Eric said...

You look adorable. I never have luck at thrift stores, but maybe I'm looking for the wrong things. I need more casual dresses anyway. Maybe it's time to give it another shot.

Monica said...

You seem to very good at mending. I wish I knew how to hem, or was better at sewing.
