ootd : all you need is love

IMG_8364Dress: Thrifted ; Top: Walmart ; Clogs: Lotta from Stockholm ; Glasses: Bonlook ; Earrings: Gifted

Lately, I have been publishing outfit posts either on items that I bought, or items that are available in the store. Because it has been awhile since I have shown you lovely readers what I can be found wearing on a day-to-day basis, I knew that it was time to have a blog post on my outfit of the day!

This Beatles-inspired look is combination of new and thrifted items. The shirt, especially, is from a store that I would never normally purchase clothes from, but with the word ‘LOVE’ surrounded in floral and lace, a girl would be crazy to pass it up. ;-)

matinee date.

IMG_1.jpgIMG_2.jpg IMG_3.jpgIMG_4.jpg IMG_5.jpgIMG_8.jpgIMG_6.jpgIMG_9.jpgIMG_10.jpgIMG_11.jpglast week my husband and i went to a matinee movie. i had forgotten how nice it is to go to the theatre in the afternoon! to go in when it’s still light out, then to come out and still have the entire night to yourselves, it’s just perfect in my eyes. this is definitely something that i would like to do as a couple more often.

on a side note, while it was much too cold to be going without a jacket that day, i couldn’t help but not show off my lovely sparrow cardigan from anthropologie. it’s now for sale in the shop, so if you like it, you can make me an offer. :-)))

( … this cardigan is now sold!)

urban outfitters dress diy.

IMG_1.jpg

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. :-)))

IMG_2-3

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!

IMG_4.jpg

no dress of mine is complete without one. ;-)

IMG_1.jpg IMG_2.jpg

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.

IMG_6-7

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?

ebay dress restyle.

IMG_1

do you remember this dress?

IMG_2

after having owned it for a year, and never being in love with the sleeves, i decided to make some changes to it so that it would feel like a new dress again. this is what i did.

IMG_3

i bought some lace.

IMG_4

then i removed the sleeves and replaced them with my new purchase.

IMG_5

i also sewed some lace onto the bottom of the dress.

IMG_6

the total price for this project was $5. considering that the dress itself was only $5, i think that it was a good investment!
