I really liked the fact that this dress had pockets, and apparently the previous owner did too-- there were used tissues stuffed in each one when I bought it. Ew!
Dress- Vintage, Pleather Jacket- Rainbow, Boots- Jeffrey Campbell, Platforms- Jessica Simpson
Spent yesterday afternoon catching up on some much needed vintage alterations (it was like a big pink elephant growing in my closet). I loved the pattern and color of this dress, but the length felt very Chiquita Banana---it's amazing what simply chopping off a couple of inches of fabric (or in this case, feet) will do. Hemmed a couple of other dresses/ skirts (including one sky blue sheer Alice in Wonderland-looking number, so excited for it!). At one point I got a little scissors-happy and ended up lopping off wayyy too much of one dress-- it would probably only be appropriate for an 8 year old at this point!
