Day 194: Flowers for a Rainy Day Dress

Day 195: Yves Saint Laurent, why?
Day 193: Monday Fun Day Dress

Welcome to South Carolina…land of the constant wintery rain!  Oy.  If I sound cynical and tired, it’s because of this icktastic slow drizzle that’s been happening all day.  :/ I decided to wear something pretty and floral to get myself out of this irksome funk.

This is what I look like at 6am.

 Fortunately for my very groggy self, this would be a fairly easy fix.  🙂

First, I took out those awful shoulder pads!

I have no desire to look like a linebacker, thank you very much!

Then, I made a quick chop!

Chopola!

A pin and hem followed.

Just hemming along!

Now…the dress was still just a tad too big.  I took a safety pin and pinned the dress at the waist from the inside to cinch it just a tad.  🙂

Hi there!

Unfortunately, I chopped off just a bit too much to be able to wear it to work and maintain any sort of decency.  :/  I put a black skirt under it, and you know what?  I think I like it even better that way!

I wore my cute (slightly too short) dress to Drip Coffee, where I nommed on a tasty eggplant sammich after work!  🙂

Such a Treat! 🙂

Whew!  This dreary day has really sucked the life out of me!  I hope I can get my energy back.  🙂  Until then…

Cheers!

    O.K. just a thought . . .you have been doing this stuff almost daily,192 days. How big is your closet anyway? Are you keeping all this stuff or wearing them once and getting rid of the ones that you didn’t like as well. Just wondering : – D

What do you think?
