I'm Thinking Pink

Think Pink_1 Think Pink_2 Think Pink_3 Think PInk_4

Wearing:
Vintage necklace
Gold bangles from Mexico
Vintage bracelet
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?

  2. I want to look like you so badly I could cry. :P

    I love that blazer. No, scratch that. I'm obsessed with it.

    I love that you paired it with the white lace dress.

    God, what I would give to still fit into stuff I bought in 2005...or 2010. LOL!

  8. Hi Azu! Cute dress, I also have some items that I have ''pimped'' myself, like some very old black flats to which I added a fluorescent bow. It's really nice (and cheap) to do it.
    Love

  9. Oh no! hahaha. I'm glad you could laugh - I had had things like that happen to me too. Like, the time I thought my tunic was a dress...and wandered all over downtown in it.

    Yes, Saturday afternoon works! What is your e-mail? I can send you my number.

    This will be fun!

  31. Alterations make the world go 'round. Im starting sewing lessons on the 3rd and I told my teacher I want to be skilled in the alterations department. Did I tell you I picked out a pink lipstick at MAC for Maricela to wear during the event and it was "girl about town?" I was like hey! my friend wears this. And then my mom coincidentally bought it the other day. It looks really good with the lip glass "pink poodle" do you have that one too? About the vintage baby clothes, I totally feel you. I am my mom's only child so she saved tons of my dresses and clothes. Good thing I had a girl. She will be rocking my Xmas dress for Xmas. My mom used to hide her precious jewelry in my old winnie the pooh onsie. She said burglars would never think to steal baby clothes hanging in the corners of her closet. Smart lady.Take care raven haired mu~neca
