My Vintage Dress


I wore this polyester dress back in January.


I bought it in Argentina's famous San Telmo street market.
It was about 2 sizes too big for me.
I have had the shoulders fitted and the skirt shortened.
However after wearing it in January I decided that
it needed a tiny adjustment.


Vintage dress from Argentina - Qupid grey wedges - Liz Claiborne tote bag - Tiffany silver accessories
So this time around I had it shortened about an extra inch,
had the shoulder pads removed and shoulders fitted even more.
Had the front sewn shut to avoid any flashing.


Sally Hansen nail strips

I think it now fits perfect.
Well almost :)

This is really pretty! I can tell the fit is so much better this time- not that it was bad before- but the skirt length is so much more flattering. I love the color too! Lovely ; )
