It was a super hot day so I was really looking for something to stay cool in. Wasn’t sure if I wanted a dress or just a top, but I thought this lavender-y, crepe number would do just the trick.
It was light and airy which I thought was great. Loved the color, but wasn’t crazy about the fit or the top of the dress. My mind started racing and I came up with a fun idea that was going to bear a lovely, cool top.
But, parting with these was first on the agenda.
I got rid of both shoulder pads in no time!!
In getting to the coolest place possible so my sweat-o-meter wasn’t crazily off the charts, I decided to cut off the shoulders on both sides.
I trimmed off one and then easily tweaked the other.
I had a little halter-esque project going on, just that my back wasn’t going to be exposed.
I pinned down the raw edges on both sides, cut off the length of the dress…
…and stitched everything into place.
Paired with some jeans, a vintage hanging locket and Havaianas on my feet, I enjoyed the warm weather and made an evening trip to the movies.
Fun night to go check out Going the Distance where I immediately fell in love with Drew Barrymore’s wardrobe – fun and casual (lots of stripes and deep backed T-shirts)…
…with some scattered sequined/beaded pieces that I salivated over.
Loved what she wore to her London premiere…
Because I did leave the arm holes larger (when I toyed around with the idea of adjusting, it tightened the top a smidge too much and lost a bit of the drapey/flowy element) I threw on my olive tank underneath which kind of matched DB above…
Let the weekend continue!!
