I'm Thinking Pink
Gold bangles from Mexico
Vintage poodle brooch
Charlotte Russe white eyelet dress
Zara pink blazer
Miu Miu patent leather mary janes
Mac lipstick "Dear Diary"
Essie nail polish "Peach Daiquiri"
One of the last times I wore this dress, I made the mistake of wearing bright orange underwear. I kept wondering why everyone was staring at me everywhere I went. "They must really like my dress," I thought. LOL! It wasn't until I looked in the mirror of a public restroom that I realized what a huge mistake I'd made. Although this dress has lining, my brightly colored undergarment was clearly visible through this white dress. It was embarrassing, but I had to laugh at myself.
This dress was purchased back in 2005 or so. I still remember the day I bought it. Charlotte Russe was packed that day. I tried on this dress, which at the time had pale pink sequins all over it. It also had an ugly looking cowboy belt (there isn't wrong with a cowboy belt, but this one was just awful). I bought the dress, ditched the belt, and removed every single sequin. I had a sequin overload from the previous seasons so I wanted to stay away from them for a while lol. I have to say that removing the sequins was a good decision. I think it helped make this dress more versatile. Otherwise it would have been overly girly.
Do any of you have items of clothing that you slightly altered over the years? Isn't it amazing what a few changes can do to a piece of clothing?
