I think this navy blue H&M dress I found at the Goodwill is better suited for winter to be worn with knee and lower thigh covering tights
and if I had opted to let the black bedazzle me buttons and safety pin neck closure stick around they would also contribute to the reason for the frock's strict relegation to the cold weather months
To try to transform the bluebell I flipped it inside out and folded it in half lengthwise and said, "hasta la nevaaaa" to that panel of black diamonds and sewed a them right on out of there.... tried to defluff the skirt and sleeves as much as possible without going overboard
added a kerchief cummerbund (eee--I have been pronouncing that "cumberbund" my whole life) and a braidtail
took a senior portrait complete with faux brick background for the bump's 26 week old sake
and called it a semi-successful day in alteration land
I must be off as I promised Julia we could pluck out and dine on the marshmallows from the Mallow Oats right before dinner. Our favorite.
Last post I'll be dropping this day, prom
Have a nice one.
