Sleepwalk Right Through It Dress

Violet Femme Dress
RED Meets Purple!

Today’s dress was a fab gift that made me quite happy when I saw it!

I never look a gift dress in the mouth!

Isn’t that print just awesome?  And don’t you love the navy/mint green combo?

And check out the label:

This was an expensive dress, folks!

This dress probably sold for $300-$500 originally.

But even this dress’ previous owner wasn’t completely happy with it:

Sleeves slit by previous owner!

This dress is too big for me to fit as it is intended, but luckily, I had other plans!

Triple Chop! :)

After a few amputations, I cut a sash from the very bottom hem of the dress.

Snnnip!

And with this five-minute transformation, I was ready to  meet up with a few fab friends for a movie and drinky drinks!

Happy Theater-Goer! :)

We met up at the new Nickelodeon Theatre to see the subtly moving and funny film, Sleepwalk With Me.

Mike Birbiglia has a dream! Several, in fact!

After the film, we headed off to The Whig.  :)

Buds & Booze!
Slurrrrp!
Cheers!

Oh…and are you as fascinated/horrified by the art work behind me as I am???

I’m buggin’ out over it! Eep!

Cheers!

  1. Hey! Just found your blog on Pinterest and you do awesome work! I also just saw this post with the Nickelodeon Theater and thought “Is she from Columbia?” And then you mentioned The Whig and I knew you were! I love your repurposing ideas. You make them look sooooooo much better than they initially did. Very creative and an inspiration to look at things differently. Thank you!

  2. This was such a simple refashion, but I think it’s my favorite out of all your conquests :) I’m thinking mostly because I am COMPLETELY in love with that pattern!! If only I could find such awesome patterns/frocks when I hit the thrift stores!!

  3. I just wanted to commend you for showing all of us that the size of a dress doesn’t matter! You made a size 16 dress look fab on your tiny frame!! I read your blog all the time and have just been rereading it for inspiration while I have the flu..boo hoo
