did you ever have one of those days where nothing (and i mean nothing) seems to go your way? today was that sort of day for me. from the moment that i woke up, until now, i felt as if luck was just not on my side. in fact, i am pretty sure that lady luck was having a big ol’ laugh at me!!!
venting aside, the only thing that is keeping me going is looking at the before and after photos of this dress. what began as one of my favorite, ballerina-inspired items from uo, was after two years turned into a more modern dress style. modern for me, at least. :-)))
i began by removing the arms, and sewing on lovely, black, semi-sheer fabric in their place. then i used the same fabric to add … you guessed it! a hello scarlett bow, of course!
no dress of mine is complete without one. ;-)
then *g* and i had a photo shoot late in the evening, on an extremely windy night, after work, and after i changed in our truck. also, the power was out. even though i am wearing a smile in addition to my newest diy, it was pretty chaotic. however, the photos did turn out, so i was a happy girl in the end.
well, they turned out for the most part. the bow was actually tucked into my dress the whole time we photographed it! yet, given the day that i had, i could not expect the outcome to have been any different.
c’est la vie, right?
