This dress started it's life as a super unattractive, shoulder padded, white tie collared monstrosity.
Now it looks like this.
So here's the before picture.
So I took out the shoulder pads, cut of the weird white ties, and chopped it off quite a bit shorter.
And voila! That was all it took. One of the easier reconstructions I have undertaken.
I think it's just about perfect with some nude heels, red and blue elastic belt, vintage color block purse and some pretty red lipstick. That was my most recent beauty purchase--always good for pretending you're grown up.
Looks pretty good, right?
