Thrift store dress

I just realized one of my favorite dresses has never made it to Vixen Vintage! I found it last summer at a local charity shop, but it nearly reached my ankles, had big puffy 80s sleeves, and gold plastic buttons. A little snip and stitch here and there and it's one of the easiest dresses to wear year round.

Having read this I believed it was rather enlightening. I appreciate
you taking the time and effort to put this content together.
I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
But so what, it was still worthwhile! Obat aborsi penggugur kandungan

You did an amazing job transforming it into something more wearable. I'm hesitant about trying to alter clothes, just because my sewing skills are only so-so and I don't know how polished the final product will end up looking, but you make me want to give it a shot.

Fantastic frock! Purple and orange marry so well and deserve to see far more fashion play together than than typically do.

*PS* I have what looks like it could be the green twin to your orange bangle.
