LA CATRINA de LA Moda: What I Wore: Tiny Sheer Flowers

May 22, 2011

What I Wore: Tiny Sheer Flowers

dress: Macys [old] (worn three different ways in August 2010 HERE)
vest: Nordstrom Rack
bag: Steven by Steve Madden
shoes: Jessica Simpson
lipstick: MAC Neon Orange
This might be a little sad, but I feel it's important that I  share with you that this dress is one of my only successful DIY's in all of my (failed) DIY history.  The saddest part about it all, is that all I did to this dress was cut the skirt lining to a shorter length.  I know, I know not much of a DIY but please let me indulge in the feeling of accomplishment even for a little bit.  After 2 years in my closet the dress was just okay, after I cut the lining I fell in love with the dress all over again! So ladies please take my advice, if you have any old dresses in your closet and are a fan of the "sheer" look, simply cut the lining shorter (or remove it all!) and tadaa!

Ari, don't sell yourself short.. yes, this DIY may be super easy peasey, but it totally revived the dress!! I love it this way best.. the denim vest also makes it's fresh look again. Great job, girl!! :)

Not everything has to be DIY'ed, dont worry :) you do what feels comfortable for you, some people dont like altering their clothes out of fear of damaging them.
