I feel like my posts have been lacking lately- I'm sure its just due to winter weathers here in Buffalo.
I think I've developed a new psychotic condition labelled "blog anxiety". I constantly look at inspirational fashion shows, blogs, editorials and feel terrible that I realistically can't wear any of the trends because of our cold conditions.
A little boho outfit I threw together for work this morning, although perhaps I was being a bit optimistic (totally impractical) considering the frigid winds ravaging the city. I can't stand this horrid Buffalo weather; it's terribly depressing - at least the sun showed its bright face today.
Relocating to California now, kidding- not really.
I'm completely insane for trying to alter this dress on my own, but it was originally a little long for my tastes. I don't own a sewing machine, nor do I have even a slight understanding of stitching. Nevertheless, I became a little scissor-happy after a weekend brunch and hacked up the bottom of this lovely vintage find. Yeah, I'm an ass. I'm going to find a friend to help me "mend" the situation. BUT on the plus side--ah! yes I am oh so savvy--I made a little suede turban out of the remaining fabric. I'm considering adding a black suede strip to the bottom of the dress, for extra length and to complete the 60's drop waist vibe.
