Dressed In A Vintage Advantage

June 19, 2015

Hey guys!I'm always down for a thrifting expedition and I certainly wasn't going to back down on this one.Well,thanks to my obsession with thrifting I found this nice vintage dress in a pile of many others and just couldn't let go with it despite the fact that it was too big for me.I could already picture a more fitting version of it on my body,which by the way is something very important to do when at it.Always picture how you would wear it.It's a checked dress but what I love is the chinese detail at the front
It just took a visit to my tailor for a bit of work to reduce its size and the slit too.It was also very long,up to the ankles but I figured it would look better as a midi dress and after all that,behold the result!!With just a pair of black peep toe heels for extra height,an animal print bag for a slight contrast from the print and color of the dress and a nice simple hair do,I was done.
Thanks for stopping by.Remember sophie_atieno on instagram and you can follow on bloglovin or via email too.
Enjoy your weekend
Yours
