I mentioned that I would share my St. Vincent de Paul's thrifting scores so here they are! Perhaps you can help me figure out how to/if I should alter a few of these...
I LOVE the pattern on this dress but the sleeves and neckline are a bit heavy. I'm thinking about chopping off the sleeves quite a bit shorter and making a V neckline but I'm nervous about making those initial cuts. Opinions?
I ended up wearing this dress on the second day of my trip and felt very prairie-like. In a good way ;) Soooo comfy but part of me thinks it could stand to be six inches shorter...leave it or shorten it? I can't decide yet! I may even shorten those sleeves up a bit. Hmm.
It also had a Universal Studios tag inside the neck. What film do you think it was in??
What a pretty polyester this one is :) Definitely more of a Spring or Fall dress though.
The only 'modern' dress that I bought that weekend - a $5 H&M score which I wore on a night out during my trip. Fits perfect, lightweight for summer and like nothing I have!
This baby has already gone to the chopping blocks! I took off the sleeves, paired it with a pretty brown belt and shoes and Shazam! A perfect floral summer dress!
It's a bit sheer though so an underdress is a must.
I *almost* wore this dress this morning but can't decide what I think of the sleeves just yet. I'd have to get creative on the sleeve removal if I went that route. Opinions?
I sure do love the pattern of this one :) It screams me!
So there you have it, my thrifty CA scores! Amazingly, I was able to cram all of this plus some other purchases in my carry-on and didn't have to check one bag! I'm a pro at fitting a lot of junk in small spaces :)
