I love ModCloth! I rarely order anything from them (I think I ordered a pair of shoes once), but I get tons of refashion inspiration from their lovely vintage-inspired dresses.
Take this gorgeous little number, their Midnight Tide Dress:
Alhtough I’m not Seated around a beach bonfire in this jersey-knit maxi, singing along to your pal’s guitar strumming as the moon shines above. Blah Blah Blah Blather Blather Blather… as the overly twee description of this frock suggests (I’m not making this up), I still want this dress!
Sadly, all I had was this:
Luckily, all this dress needed was a couple of chops and a teensy bit of stitchery!
I took the newly sewn-together neck tie thingy sash and tied it around my waist.
This whole refashion took less than 10 minutes!
Check it out!
It was a bit chilly out, so I layered up with a thin cardigan. :)
I wore my new frock to a fun & quirky production of Swimming in the Shallows at USC’s Center for Performance Experiment. It’s a terrific play, it’s free of charge, and a man falls in love with a shark! What more could you want?
My new dress left me feeling quite celebratory, despite being nowhere near a beach or guitar-strumming companion. ;)
