    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!

    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 :)
