Aahhh...That's Better

Wow! Was I in a funk yesterday! Thanks for bearing with me...thankfully the weather held and my mood has improved as well.

I wore the other dress I hemmed today. Here's the side by side comparison:























Again, I didn't hem this one a lot either. I did take it up 3 1/4", which sounds like a lot, but looks subtle in the photos. I do think it looks more proportional. I'm very happy that I did it.

Here's how I wore it today:




I just love this dress. I bought it in university while I worked at Ragpickers. It was one of the first vintage dresses I ever bought. It was made by a home ec teacher in the 50's. Sadly I don't have the belt. I always wonder if it was striped or solid.

Flower Brooch: Ricki's
Cat Eye Sunglasses: Le Chateau
50's Cotton Dress: Ragpickers
Belt: Ragpickers
Silver Bangles: Gift
Rainbow Peep Toe Wedges: Damita K
Vintage Straw Purse: Thrifted
Thank you so much for your comments on yesterdays post! They cheered me up!

  1. Isn't it strange how such a small amount at the hem line can make such a big difference?

    In the before the dress is clearly too long, and almost looks like you are playing dress-up...and after them hemming, it's a beautiful dress that looks just right on you!
