Dress - vintage from flea market, belt - flea market, shoes - Target, bracelets - thrifted/flea market.
I think I decided I have to attempt to make a pattern from this dress and try really hard to make it in cotton. I love it post-alterations. Oh, awesome, I could probably get a roll of paper to use to make the pattern from my work. Sorry, that's just a mental note.
This belt is from a dress that cost me $1 at the same flea market. Seriously, I need to fit it in my schedule to go July 11/12. But I think I work both days... glorious, eh? And I get paid the 13th. Ah, oh well.
So yeah, I didn't actually wear this anywhere... more just wishing that I had somewhere to go where it would be somewhat appropriate. Meaning somewhere air conditioned, because polyester is awful.
PS I entered the I Love the 80's contest on Chictopia. I do not doubt that this dress is from the 80's, same goes for the belt. I also want to enter the bike contest because I could really use some exercise and I'd love a cute bike. Sigh.
PPS I want to try out a cropped top, but I wouldn't have any idea where to wear them without feeling scandalous and self-conscious. Any ideas?
