Sometimes it’s just so easy.
To transform a monstrosity of a vintage dress like this…
Into something gorgeous and work-ready like this…
All it takes is something like this…
A belt! Who’d a thunk it. (An iron doesn’t hurt either.)
P.S. Pick your potion and you could win The Anthology’s Perricone giveaway!
Beautiful dress! I don’t mind the wrinkles, it makes it look summer-y… pair it with a nice sexy flat sandals and a straw hat and you’re set :)
It also doesn’t hurt that you are stunning and have legs that go on for miles. If I attempted to wear that I would look like a short little person wearing a purple sack. You of course look amazing!
This is amazing! The color is great on you, and I am happy to see your pretty face :) How much does your tailor charge for things like this? They are great!
Kaye I — Love your styling ideas!
Melissa — You are the sweetest ever!
Kastles — Haha! It was my tailor who took one look at the thing and just said “Belt it.” Easy peasy!
You are a freakin genius, darling!
You’ve given me some serious inspiration here!
And you look amazing!
omg the belt makes such a difference
Gah! That is truly one of the most drastic transformations (in the best possible way!) I have ever seen. The before and after is incredible! :)
It’s crazy what something so simple as a belt can do to transform an outfit.
P.S. Thanks for the rec for Oakridge Tailors. I’m planning on bringing a big pile of clothes there to get altered soon and will be sure to post results on my blog :)
