Say you’re vintage shopping and you see this shoulder-padded, fuchsia-checked, long-sleeved, high-necked dress.
Some of you might recoil in disgust and throw it right back on the rack.
I did a little happy dance. Because I love nothing more than to reinvent a vintage secretary dress.
This one looks like a 1980’s take on an 1880’s school teacher’s ensemble. And for that, I love it.
I’m taking it to the tailor today and you’ll be the first to see the “after” shots once she’s worked her magic.
P.S. Let’s take a journey through some of The Anthology’s best before/afters, shall we? Like this printed jacket “before” and “after“. Oh, and these ridiculous pants look so much better after they became shorts.
