peacock and pea green

A few weeks ago i tweeted this sneak peek of my latest thrift store find - here she is!

 

I was really excited to come across this dress in the thrift store. It’s one of those rare finds - gorgeous cut and patterns, and almost my size! I noticed a large seam rip, but it looked fixable. I got home and found one more and stitched them both up.

But this fabric has no give and is very fragile, so after a few hours of wear I noticed another seam unravel on my side and I spent the rest of the day with my hands awkwardly by my side covering it up. So now I’m not sure what to with this piece. I love the fabric and colors, but it needs some serious repair.

I have no experience in fabric glue for fixing hems and things, but I’m wondering if that would do the trick since the fabric seems to unravel so easily. Any seamstresses/clothing re-fashioners have advice for me?

blue gingham and green: weekend wear

For how much I love my hair, I do have one frustration - I don’t know how to do anything with it! I found this tutorial via pinterest that shows how to pull bangs back (I’m growing mine out) with a french twist , and somehow I couldn’t even do that right.

top: Banana Republic
sweater: Old Navy
jeans: Gap
heels: Seychelles, thrifted
necklaces: inherited from my grandma and great-grandma.

Day 4: Color blocking - it takes guts

augustyle8d

For a girl that has pretty limited options when it comes to colors in her wardrobe, I knew color-blocking was going to be a challenge. I didn’t realize how confident I’d need to be to pull it off. I had to give myself a little pep talk in front of the closet this morning so I’m hoping I walked into work with confidence.
