I don't typically get into wearing red, white, and blue for "American" holidays but I this new top worked so perfectly, I couldn't resist.
It started as this horrifying dress:
|See, even my face was afraid.|
This dress screamed 1990s. And not in a good way at all. The 90s had some redeeming fashion qualities. There were a few grunge styles that I can still appreciate. But I'm pretty sure this dress was worn with white platform flip flops at some point. I can't really get on board with that.
So, needless to say, the dress needed a change. I knew from the beginning what I wanted to do. First I cut off the top.
Then a folded over the raw edge and made a new hem. It was still a little bit loose so I added some elastic to the sides.
I wore it on Memorial Day with a belt and red shoes. It was a great American outfit.
No white platform flip flops here!
