TWIRLING PLEATS....


I found this H&M dress at the Goodwill for  $3.99 a while back.  When I tried it on at home I noticed that someone had cut the bottom clear across to make it a mini dress so it took a backseat in my closet.  Recently,  I found a dry cleaner/tailor who does a great job so I asked him to do a simple hem hoping that I could  still wear it as a dress.  Unfortunately, it is just a wee bit too short for me to wear as a dress so I wore it as a top with skinny jeans.  I thought about pairing it with leggings to give it a different look.  My vintage necklace was found at Goodwill for .99cents and weighs about a pound.  I doubled it to shorten it because it falls about mid thigh if I don't. {Mr T. is jealous}  My clutch was thrifted but I believe it's fromTarget.   I know that I am posting late but I have been to the vet 4 times this week with the pups.  They are both on antibiotics for parasites in their intestines.  It is common for rescue dogs to acquire this but nothing that medicine can't cure.  Hope you are planning something fun this weekend.  lots of love, Dawn xo

OMG Dawn I LOVE this looks! So funny I just bought a top very similar at Topshop this past weekend. It has spaghetti straps and the green is a bit brighter but it's really similar. AND I wore it with skinny jeans on Monday. Great minds, huh? :)

Hope you have a great weekend, sweetie! And hope the pups feel all better soon! xoxo

LOVE that "top" and how it flows and especially how wonderful it looks with your beautiful red hair! A good tailor/seamstress is worth his or her weight in gold:-) By the way I your idea for answering my question is great and I'm down with it!
